Born of the belief that childhood is magic, natural fibers are better and art will save the world...
As a mom of two girls, one night in 2019 I found myself wondering why I couldn't find better lounge and sleepwear pieces for them. After they were asleep, I went downstairs, grabbed my laptop and decided to see if I could solve that problem.
The result is La Paloma, a line of artful pieces for kids (and now women, too!) to sleep, lounge and play. Our assortment includes simple 100% cotton house dresses for day, ribbed knit cotton sets with 90's style tank tops and cropped wide leg pants, and classic long john style pajama sets in our inimitable artist-created prints (coming soon!). Our pieces are meant for dreaming and playing, traveling and exploring.
For us embracing the magic of childhood means providing kids with the pieces that allow them to feel their best. Simple, artful, natural fiber pieces that allow them to relax, recharge and feel like a kid. In an effort to make childhood magical for more kids, we donate a portion of sales to Friends of the Children, an organization that aims to break the cycle of generational poverty for the most at-risk children.

What We Believe:
The magic of childhood is so often found in the unstructured, unplanned moments. It’s eating banana pancakes on a Sunday morning at your favorite café. It’s that impromptu post-bath dance party with your sister. It’s searching for fireflies with your best mates as the sky fades to black. It’s the feeling of falling into your bed at the end of a long day of play, curious and excited as to what the next day will bring. La Paloma is for all of these moments.
