Mother-daughter create divine children’s clothing

4 October, 2011

Old Bus Depot Markets - Tiptoe ThreadsThere’s a lot to be said for mother-daughter teams. And with creating children’s clothing, a mother and daughter team can give you a great mix of the old and the new from two generations, with different skills on hand and two pairs of eyes for spotting original vintage and modern fabrics. That’s the case for new business, Tiptoe Threads, with mother and daughter Gai and Tracey both passionate about creating children’s clothing exclusively designed and handcrafted in Australia.

Having started out creating the clothes back in 2009, the business was officially launched this year at our Kids in the Shed Market back in June. Tracey and Gai select unique, vintage and modern fabrics from around the world and pair them with older techniques such as crocheting to create fun and functional handcrafted pieces that cannot be found in mainstream stores. Plus the fabrics used are kind to little ones’ skin. The current range includes clothing for girls in sizes 00 to six years, and a boys range will be available from November – just in time for Christmas. Tiptoe Threads are at the markets at least once a month, so look out for them on your next visit.
