Our Designs

Our unique designs have developed from an innate love of textiles and a fundamental desire to decorate!

….and as kids love colourful and quirky clothing, designing children’s wear was a natural and desirable direction to take. The decorative design element is always fun, as we are free to create all manner of stitched and printed motifs, colourful patches, pockets, flowers, frills, and any other interesting embellishments we may come across.

We use a variety of fabrics from cotton to fleece. A favourite technique is to experiment with over dying of bold cotton prints, often producing unexpected and exciting results which can be the basis of a new colour range.

Our fleece products are our best sellers. It is a great modern fabric which is warm, comfortable, lightweight, crease proof and washes and dries easily.

We understand that clothing needs to last so we try to design garments that can turn up or down, and have elastic waists. We like roomy clothes with good widths so that layers can be worn beneath. We endeavour to produce clothing that is practical to wear and wash, with a high standard of finish.

If you go to our Size Guide page you will find more detailed information about our garments and wash care instructions.

Ethics & Sustainability

MADE IN CORNWALL

Lizzie Shirt is proudly sweatshop free! We design and manufacture all of our clothing here in Falmouth Cornwall. We feel it is important to keep Britain manufacturing and boost locally skilled jobs. Approximately 90% of our manufacturing materials (fabrics, trimmings, labels, stationary and packaging) are purchased from British companies.

ENVIRONMENT

We care about our impact on the environment and recycle and re-use all of our boxes and packaging wherever possible.

TEXTILES

Our fleece products are made from recycled plastics, and much of our left over fabric off cuts go to supply local schools and charities through the Scrapstore scheme.
