“Made by rebels for rebels. If wearing our threads makes your kid a little mischievous, blame us. And enjoy the chaos.” Anarkid.
Anarkid is a baby and toddler clothing line born and bred in Melbourne culture. The brand describes itself as being built on a solid foundation of style, understated cool and rebellion. The creative genius behind Anarkid, Kelli paints a picture of her own childhood and speaks of how she grew up riding bikes on the street until dusk, listening to Nirvana and the Pixies, and spending way to much time dreaming about being a rock star. This kind of free spiritedness is clearly reflected in her playful designs.
Best of all Anarkid actively promotes the social responsibility they have to their factory workers and regularly donates to the India Development Relief Fund, a charity based in the country where their factory is situated. Anarkid’s garments are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which is recognised as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
All of the labels clothes are manufactured with organic cotton. Organic cotton is grown without harmful pesticides or fertilisers, making it far better for the skin on your little ones. Not only does it make for better quality material, just as importantly is the huge flow-on effect this has on the farmers and communities from where the cotton is grown. Organic cotton farming methods are free from harmful pesticides and fertilisers that harm the soil and pollute the waterways for future generations.
