Odarling Clothing Co offers modern and practical handmade children's clothing with comfortable basics for tiny trendsetters. Scroll down to get to know a little about us-
As a new mom, I was inspired to create trendy "sweatpant" alternatives for my newborn son. I felt like that the gender specific clothing was so ridiculous for tiny newborns. As many parents know, it's hard to find a "boys" outfit that isn't blue with a truck on it... I knew I wanted to break those boundaries for my son.
For the first pairs of tiny pants I made, I cut up all of my old printed cotton shirts. With a simple pattern I was able to make comfy clothes for my tiny guy that had people all over San Diego (our home base) asking where I was able to find such cute stuff! It evolved to buying second hand (adult) printed leggings from thrift stores and cutting them up, recycling them for rad kids wear.More and more interest grew and we quickly realized that we weren't the only parents longing for not-boring, unisex kids clothing! My husband has a career in graphic design and in 2014 we collaborated to make our first pattern design that we could print onto any fabric we wanted.
Inspired by our last name, Oda, we finally came up with a name. From there Odarling has grown to be so much more. We are still a family run operation with many of our pieces being crafted here at our kitchen table (we live in pretty tight quarters) by me and one other amazing seamstress located here in southern California. Even our screen printers that print our original designs are located just down the street from us in Normal Heights- San Diego.
We have collaborated with amazing brands and continue to bring the best for the important little humans in your life.
We thank you for supporting us, a small family in So Cal on our adventure. We could not do this without you.
