My sister in London just sent me a link to Scottish based clothing brand Waddler, a beautiful range for girls and boys, that uses Alpaca in many of their garments. Knitted in Bolivia, they support the local women there and work to fair trade practices and age old traditions. Really, if you don't fall head over heels with the overalls with built in mitten pockets, I'll faint in disbelief. They are just too much in the adorable stakes!
But what also struck me, when I flicked to their blog, was the personal meanderings of the writer - the mama of the Waddler clan, who speaks intelligently, passionately, about her business, her family and her musings on parenting. She speaks a lot of truth and I liked her honesty. I hope they do well.
