How it started...
I'm a mama of two girls and an Austin-native who spent a decade after school in Los Angeles before returning back to my Texas roots.
I was a textiles major at UT 🤘🏼and a wardrobe stylist in LA for television, red carpets and commercials. After I had kids, those 12 hour set days just didn't hit the same way and I was always looking for the next chapter in my career.
One very typical evening I was getting my girls ready for bed, thinking about the magical day we had just had– splashing in central Texas creeks and meeting friends for dinner al fresco while the kids made chalk art drawings. As I was pulling pajamas over my daughter's head I found myself wishing for more artful prints in luxe fabrics that matched this magical phase of childhood. It wouldn't be called La Paloma for many more months, but the dream was born in that instant!
Two months later I was in New York, sourcing fabric at a trade show and on May 11th, 2020 we launched our first house dresses into the world!
I'm so grateful for the opportunity to make quality pieces for your kiddos in artful prints that will hopefully inspire their curious minds as they grow and feel oh-so-soft against their skin.
Born of the belief that childhood is magic, natural fibers are better and art will save the world, La Paloma is a line of artful pieces for women and kids for sleep, lounge and play.
How it's going...
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 for play, and classic tight-fitting long john style pajama sets in our inimitable artist-created prints for lounge and sleep. Our pieces are meant for dreaming and playing, traveling and exploring.
For us, embracing the magic of childhood means providing kids with 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.
