It all started with a love of the woven fabric.
Essikakids was started in June 2017 with a handful of fabrics and just a couple of styles. The fabrics were hand woven with natural dyed yarns and the finished piece was stunning. The founder, Merlin, felt that children's fashion is sorely lacking in simple styles in such fabrics that hardly need any embellishments. All those late nights on Pinterest while her children slept, helped her figure out her own design aesthetic and what she really wanted her children to wear. The designs are inspired by Japanese fashion combined with Indian fabrics.
True, it wouldn't be the first choice for a child considering there are no pinks, glitter or cartoon characters on it. But once the garment is worn,we guarantee it will be worn again..and again.. and again.
