Behind every Little Green Radicals product is a story. Each piece is lovingly made by a group of skilled & dedicated individuals at one of our wonderful producers in India. As our Northern Lights collection is here, I wanted to tell you a little bit more about some of the amazing people who make our clothes . . .

During my trip to India this summer I met with Punitha and her team (seen centre below) in the vibrant, colourful city of Kolkata. Punitha is one of our Head Merchandisers and has worked with us for over five years. Her eye for detail and in depth knowledge of every aspect of a Little Green Radicals helps to make our clothing so special.

 Head Tailer Mohan (pictured below) is another invaluable member of our team. Mohan’s father was a Tailor before him, so he brings a huge amount of experience and knowledge to his craft. We’re forever thankful for the expertise of our Tailors and the high standard they achieve. Making long lasting clothing that not only looks beautiful but also stands the test of time involves many process. We want our clothes to be passed down again and again, so they need to survive new borns, excitable toddlers and adventuring kids. It’s not just the premium organic cotton we use but also the high quality accessories we source that means every piece we make reaches the standard we, and hopefully you, have come to expect from a Little Green Radicals product.

During my trip I took a long and bumpy ride into the Indian countryside to visit one of the mills that make our organic cotton fabrics. We drunk a lot of Chai tea and had a hugely enjoyable day working on a new printing technique ensuring our colourful inks sit inside the dyed fabric, rather than on top, giving a much softer hand feel. We also took the extra step of pre-washing our collection to give an even softer finish. Many of our styles are still screen printed, which means each colour you see has been hand painted onto the fabric by a skilled printer, making each piece unique.

It is always a privilege to meet the people who make our clothing and I hope you love wearing our Northern Lights collection as much as we enjoyed designing and making it.
