I'm Anna, the designer and creator behind Little Deer Handmade. I was inspired to create modern, timeless, well-made, and ethically sourced children’s apparel after having kids of my own. It was difficult to find simple, well-made children's wear, especially within Canada. With the help of my husband Jason, we launched in the spring of 2016. We are working hard to grow into a brand that produces quality garments. We are passionate about making well made and liveable clothing for our children, and yours. We value the art of simplicity and integrity; the concept that less is more, and that buying with intention and integrity is possible, even in the world of children’s wear.
We strive to provide children’s fashions that are ethical and affordable. Our products are made in Alberta, Canada, using high quality, natural fibres. We specialize in 100% linen, as well as linen/cotton fabric blend. Our core intention is to ethically source and produce garments that respect both humans and the planet.
We see the true value in small-lot production and the creation of a carefully designed and crafted heirloom garment. These pieces can be worn, played in, enjoyed and then passed on to be enjoyed by other little members of the family. Heirloom garments not only capture the nostalgia of a precious time with your little ones.
For now production is done by myself. I will however occasionally hire my mom to help me. We can proudly say all of our garments are made ethically with thought and care.
Little Deer Handmade is a labour of love, coffee and baby naps launched out of Alberta by mama of two little kiddos.
