First look at OM kids

Thank you to our most trusted and stylish friends (many of them moms and dads) who were so generous with their feedback on the designs, styles and colours we presented over the past few months. 

It's still a work in progress, but we are so excited to give you a first look at OM home's  kids collection.   

This 2-piece pajama is one of our favourites to date. We are getting samples made in electric blue, orange, green, yellow, beige and pink (see below). No boy/girl clothes, just comfy, colourful clothes for kids.

Vibrant colours & patterns
We were so excited when this fabric arrived! We've sampled a range of products in this Jasper design including onesies, sleepers, hankie bibs...even underwear! 

Our little muses
Picture this sleeper and kimono top with cream (or maybe yellow) snap buttons. Oorbee Roy, OM home's designer, originally created this pattern for her wedding invitation. We are calling this design Avnee (in honour of a most special little girl). Sadly, my camera phone doesn't do this sweet pattern justice. 

Made in Canada
All our garments are designed and crafted in Toronto; just a couple of blocks away from OM home's office. 

This is a great example of a mistake gone good. A pair of my son's underwear was left under a stack of patterns, and our seamstress assumed we wanted it sampled. With our range of colours we could make a days of the week, 7-pack underwear set. Remember those?! I'm only partly joking.

Little hipster hankie bib
This hankie can also be used as a burp cloth or head scarf. One of my most stylish mommy friends swears by these bibs. Fashionable and versatile!

This is just a start. If you like what you've seen so far and for updates on the collection, please "Like" OM home's page on Facebook

OM home's kids collection is scheduled to launch this Fall. We'd love to know what you think of our first round of samples!
