I started The Pond of Stars so that I could bring gender-neutral, affordable original designs to babies, kids, and adults. I'm inspired by animals doing funny human stuff; finding a way to make simple, yet witty designs; and creating high-quality prints.
Basically, I'm looking for a way to bring original designs to people who are mostly faced with highly gendered, corporate-design monotony. By being an independent maker, the consumer and I become part of a community, instead of parts of a dissociated corporate system.
But mostly I like animals doing funny human stuff.
Our graphics are printed using the most environmentally friendly, water-based inks possible. These inks are phthalate, lead and PVC-free and comply with The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA). All of our materials are safe for use with infants.
The Pond of Stars Ethics
Our baby clothing, toddler tees, youth and adult tee's are printed on high-quality, preshrunk cotton tops and one pieces. The Pond of Stars was started in April of 2014. Since then, we've learned a lot about T-shirts and onesies and have made it our goal to use all organic, fair-trade, sustainably made garments by Fall of 2015.
By October 2015 The Pond of Stars will have transitioned entirely to HAE Now brand garments. Humans, Animals, Environment, (HAE) Now! shares our goals and only offers lines of clothing that fit the above criteria. Until the Fall, look for specially marked items as organic or contact me for a listing of items that are organic.
Thank you for considering The Pond of Stars!
