Behind The Brand- District Mot
Today we are excited to introduce you to District Mot Kids, a debut kids clothing line from Mimi Swain, featuring fun color palettes and unexpected designs not typically seen in infant clothing.
In Mimi's own words:
Inspiration comes in many forms. The story behind District Mot Kids begins in Vietnam. My mom and dad immigrated to the United States in 1980 from District Mot in Saigon, Vietnam. They inspire me every single day. District Mot Kids, is my debut infant clothing for infants (newborn to 18 months) that honors my parents, my heritage, and my desire to make a difference in the world.
The collection is made with exceptionally soft fabrics, that combine comfort, durability, and stylish designs. In rompers, onesies, or dresses we guarantee babies will be snuggled in love because every product is made with love. Designed and produced in Los Angeles with an homage to Vietnamese style and heritage, we use upcycled fabrics in the line. So fabric that would have normally ended up in a landfill get a second life with us.
In addition to being locally made and eco-friendly, each sale generates hope for another baby in need. Ten percent of the proceeds are donated to Children of Vietnam, a Charity dedicated to improving lives of kids and babies in need. With every purchase, it is one baby helping another.
Our brand ethos is all about giving back and helping children however we can through our apparel and accessories. Through a partnership with Children of Vietnam, proceeds from sales will help children with education, healthcare access, basic life necessities, assisting with single mothers and building a foundation for babies, children and families in need.
With clothes designed for babies from 0 to 18 months, with plans to expand to 3T in the coming months District Mot Kids features gender-neutral designs with a mix of muted and bold colors, and funky patterns, too. Look for high quality soft fabrics like modal, cotton chambray, rayon, and fleece. We also sells accessories including baby blankets and “Hello Baby” bundles, a perfect baby shower gift.
