Comfy Children Clothing presents Sensory Soft clothing benefiting children with sensory issues, while offering colorful well-crafted garments that let children easily play. Sara’s thesis line aims to create unisex basics for kids ages between 4-12. The collection has a different approach to childrenswear, and focuses on notions and finishing that are less irritating for children to wear. No tags and no inside seams mean more comfort to children. Gender-free leggings are the key look for the collection and optimistic color blocks are used to encourage confidence and positivity. The garments are constructed from environmentally responsible materials such as OEKO-TEX® certified organic cotton. All the fabrics are hand-dyed with non-toxic dyes, and hand-block printing is applied to some of the garments.
