Okay, okay. This post is waaaaay looong overdue.
Seven weeks ago, I shared these beautiful wrap-around skirts on my Instagram.
These beautiful wrap-around skirts from the Anthill x Mother Earthling Collection came from Rone of Mothering Earthlings. Mothering Earthlings is an online shop, 100% Filipino owned carrying the best of the best of baby and kids’ wear and stuff.
Geez, I wish they have them in my size…
So anyway, I said earlier this post is way long overdue, right?
You see, my model – my cousin’s three-year old granddaughter – got bitten – accidentally, let me emphasize – on the face by our playful westie. West Highland Terriers shouldn’t really be around smaller kids because I read somewhere that they think of little kids as prey. The bite was not nasty, just superficial, but kind of bloody.
Hailley has recovered, for those asking how she is, and the scar has faded, you won’t even notice she got bitten. As for Philipuss, our westie, he still hangs out with Hailley, although we keep an eye on him all the time (dogs sense if they do something bad, and so far, he has been behaving perfectly well, like he is making amends with what he did).
In fact, he was around when Hailley modeled this beautiful Tayum Sampaguita Wrap Skirt from Mothering Earthlings.
The Tayum is a wrap skirt us adults would love to have as well. Seriously! Little girls can wear the side that matches their tops or their moods because it is reversible!. It has an adjustable waist making the skirt grow with her and is accented by a Binakol pattern hand-woven using scrap or upcycled thread by skilled artisan mothers from the company’s weaving community partner in Sarrat, Philippines. Plus, I love the quality of the skirt. I bet she can wear the skirt until she is around 8 and would still look brand new!
Mothering Earthlings is an online shop that proudly brings together Filipino design and brands for babies, kids and moms, and makes them available to the world so Earthlings across the planet can begin to appreciate their style and the cool, contemporary way they do things.
They currently cater to 0-6 years old and offer everything from diaper bags to baby carriers to nursing wears to cool clothes for your little ones.
Wouldn’t you love your little girl to be wearing this versatile skirt?
The photo above is the Tablas Rosas Wrap Skirt. It has a long waistband accented with Ramit bands meticulously handwoven by the Buhid and Hanunuo Mangyans in Mindoro, Philippines. Upcycled thread is spun into intricate geometric patterns.
Isn’t it awesome how these little Earthlings #ComeInStyle?
I wish Mothering Earthlings have been around when I had my now-bigger Earthlings. I would have bought the nursing wraps and the onesies and the shapewear and just about everything Mothering Earthlings have.
In fact, this girl (my eldest) wishes she could wear the skirts…
If you are looking for the perfect Christmas present for your “inaanak” Earthling, please go check out their website. The quality of their products are beyond perfect and the design promises that your little earthlings will come in style.
