Tortoise & the Hare is a natural children’s clothier. Each piece is thoughtfully designed, cut, and sewn in Lancaster, Pennyslvania by seamstresses who were to sew by their mamas. We use natural and sustainable fibers such as natural linen, hemp, quality cotton, and American-raised wool.
Our naturally-dyed fibers are dyed locally using fair-trade and locally foraged dyes materials. After the fabric is died, each dye baths is used as natural fertilizer on farmland. By using naturally-dyed fabrics, we are able to reduce toxic waste and in turn offer you toxin free clothes that are not only good for your skin, but kind to the earth.
Inspired by the imaginative world of Aesop’s Fables and Beatrix Potter. Each collection is grounded in an element of thoughtful simplicity influenced by my Amish heritage.
A note from Rosina: I was raised on my family’s 30 acre flower farm where daily life always included digging in the dirt, dressing up our chickens in doll clothes, and building forts. I’m honored to be a part of your intentional lifestyle and grateful to be a part of your family’s memory-making adventures for years to come. You’ll find me in the studio, coffee mug in hand (i’ll take cream with that, please) and always assisted by my own two muses, my own children. I’m passionate about making clothes that are both sustainable and beautiful but always made to last. While tending to my own home, my goal is always to keep wardrobes simple & classic. I hope to do the same for you!
Thanks for stopping by!
