Handmade was created in 2017 by me, Diana Pais, founder and designer of the brand. My mission is to create clothing that will withstand the daily life ofchildren, which can be inherited and carry memories through generations. I believe that if clothes tell a story, it will be harder to throw it away…
Inspired by games and applying to the aesthetics the principles of child development, the brand has a universe that is never static, promoting free play and stimulating all the senses.
Clothing to wearanytime, anywhere, year-round, rain or shine. Clothing that grows with you.Clothing that allows the freedom to move and to experience adventures. Freedomto explore the world around you. Freedom to explore yourself.
Working with lots ofdifferent fabrics means that there will be some remnant scraps.
All accessories aremade from those remnants, which means the same soft cotton fabric, will be incontact with your child’s sensitive skin.
The brand goes against the massification of the fashion industry, producing in small quantities and valuing longevity, craftsmanship, sustainability and creativity.
All the pieces are designed and produced in Portugal, made in organic cotton sourced from deadstock fabric. I work with certified suppliers, creating long-lasting relationships which ensure good working conditions and no child labour.
The clothes I make canbe worn by everyone, be it boy or girl. Being a gender neutral brand meansaccepting and treating all as equals, which, for me, is a wonderful message tosend to the world.
Grows with you
Most of the shirts andtrousers have long cuffs which allows the clothing to “grow” with your child.It can be used rolled up and as the child grows, it can be extended to thecorrect length, being able to wear it for at least two years.
