Lil Find: Kissy Kissy

If you’ve never felt a piece of Kissy Kissy clothing, you are in for a treat. Made of cotton the company works with a village of women in Zimbabwe to hand-embroider and hand-smock their designs (think stars and moons, bunnies, boats, etc.) on onesies, gowns and two-piece coming home outfits.

For Fall, the company is featuring its first foray into the world of organic clothing with onesies, gowns, hats, blankets and playsuits made of some of the softest organic Pima cotton we have ever felt. The line is produced without harsh chemical bleaches or dyes and features hand-embroidered lambs on natural ecru cotton. The pieces will be available in sizes premature to 24 months and make beautiful layette pieces for newborns.

The Organic Sheep line will debut in early September and will be available at major department stores and specialty boutiques. The current Kissy Kissy line is available at fine boutiques, as well as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks, Bloomingdales and Harrods.

We just wanted to clarify that Kissy Kissy is not manufactured in Zimbabwe but in Peru. The factories we work with have very strict standards for the well-being of their workers, as a matter of fact, one has won several awards from the Peruvian Society of Industries, no children nor underage people are employed, and no one works more than is allowed by law. There is not such thing as giant markups with us, just enough to maintain the business. The money does go to the hand-embroideres--we get to speak to many of them directly--they are the ones that set the price for each embroidery. We make many donations of our clothing, not only in Peru but also the U.S. and other countries. This is a women-owned private business that employs mostly women who are very sensitive to the needs of others.

I was thinking the same thing, kiki and peep, when I heard Zimbabwe. I imagined children and women in a sweat shop sewing their hands to the bone for the detail. I'll have to look around and see if there's any info on it.

I was wondering something along those lines--how much of that giant markup goes back to the women in Zimbabwe who MAKE the clothes??

So does Kissy Kissy outfit all the Zimbabwe's workers children in their nice- available at Nordstrom, Saks, and Neiman Marcus- clothes? I don't think so...
