Bitty Bambu, Maui’s whimsical children’s clothing line, unveiled the new ‘Wildlflowers’ collection this past week. The handmade dresses, which feature rich, jewel-toned fabrics, were inspired by a quote from Tom Petty’s Wildflowers song:
“You belong among the wildflowers/ you belong on a boat out at sea/ sail away, kill off the hours/ you belong somewhere you feel free”
For Taryn, the line’s designer and seamstress, creating children’s clothing is all about “capturing the spirit of the freedom and joy of childhood, so the lyrics from that song became the theme of the new collection.”
‘Wildflowers’ is also the fall collection for Bitty Bambu, which according to Taryn is a bit tricky, being based in Hawaii. “The line is featured in many Hawaii boutiques, but I have many customers from the mainland and internationally with Etsy, so I’ve created a balance with some long-sleeve dresses and many layer-able designs. Throw a long-sleeve shirt underneath, with some tights and boots and your daughter is set for fall into winter.”
The Bitty Bambu line is known for its use of designer and imported fabrics, with modern patterns and quality assembly. Many of the items are made to order, and typically available in sizes 6 months to 6 years. Bitty Bambu welcomes custom orders, and turn around can be up to two weeks, depending on fabric availability. Wholesale orders are also welcomed.
