Behind The Scenes
Countless hours have been spent catering for that every child. Trying to perfect every inch of every adaptive feature. We try to help with the everyday problems faced by disadvantaged children and their carers. Every child has the right to wear fashionable clothing and to dress easily. This helps create happy childhood memories for the children and their parents.
LITTLE CONNECTIONS products have been thoughtfully designed and tested on children. Each piece is worn, washed, and lived in for weeks before it is assessed and put into production.
All of the patterning, grading, sewing, sampling, size and fit are done in our local studios in Burleigh on the Gold Coast. We support our local communities by employing local people with exceptional skills, to bring the high-quality garments to our customers.
Designed & Made in Australia
Most brands look for ways to cut costs by creating disposable clothing with minimal features. LITTLE CONNECTIONS is not most brands. We aim to produce high quality products to suit your child's needs. All our adaptive clothing is 100% Australian made, from start to finish. Something we are very proud of.
Our sustainable fashion revolution is about creating stretchy, breathable garments made from near 100% natural fibres. Our clothes are great for everyday use and designed to last during active play. We only choose natural fabrics and work with factories on the basis that they care for the environment as much as we do. We believe in sustainable clothing.
How You can make a difference?
Wash your clothing in cold water. About 90% of the energy used by the washing machine during laundry goes towards heating the water. The enzymes in cold water detergent are designed to clean better in cold water. Doing two loads of laundry each week in cold water instead of hot or warm water can save up to 500 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions each year. Using cold water to wash some of your clothes eliminates this extra energy requirement. Decreasing your carbon footprint can be as easy as switching to cool water.
If you can, you should probably line dry clothes rather than tumble dry them. Our data shows that while the lint filter in a tumble dryer can capture shed fibres, the process of tumbling could lead to a higher rate of shedding as the strength of the fibres may be reduced. Although, from an environmental perspective, by far the biggest advantage of line drying is saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Stop buying Synthetics
One suggestion to help the environment is to stop buying synthetic garments and only buy clothes made using natural fibres. All fibres shed microfibres. Natural microfibres can degrade in a matter of months. Whereas synthetic microfibres can take 500 years to degrade.
