Q&A with Jess & Allison:

How did you become interested in clothing design?
We have wanted to collaborate on a creative venture since we first met, but the idea was solidified shortly after the birth of our son 5 years ago. We really began to notice the differences between fits and materials in baby clothes, and received gifts that were duplicates or very similar in design (blues, baseballs and dogs...) We decided there might be an opportunity to design creative, high quality alternatives – and decided a batch of animals combined with funky patterns might be a good start. We are constantly coming up with new ideas, just need to find time to create.

Describe your perfect day.
Hiking or playing on a beach with our kids - full time travel/adventurers

What inspires you most?
Inspiration comes from everywhere really, the crazy discussions our 5 and 2-year-olds have, vintage wallpaper, various art & design sources. Keeping an open mind and trying to appreciate the subtle details we often take for granted.

What was your biggest craftastrophe?
Not sure we have had one, or maybe its just too early. We really treat this as a creative outlet and all about fun – we don't take ourselves too seriously, mistakes are just experimentation really.

What are some of your favorite blogs/ online crafting resources?
Design Sponge, Etsy, Bloesem, Poppytalk Handmade, Aesthetic Apparatus, Graphic Exchange, Momoderne, QBN, The Cool Hunter

What advice do you have for other crafters or small business owners?
Get ideas and concepts out freely and early (avoid the paralysis of analysis), take advantage of all the knowledge and experience available online - networks, forums, inspiration, business information etc, get out of your comfort zone once in a while, take risks.

Where can we find more of your work?
