In our house we are all about gender equality on every level – from toys and activities to clothing and colours. I have a big brother and two big sisters so we have lots of everything for us all.
We were very excited when Polarn O. Pyret offered to send us an outfit from their Same Difference clothing range. The limited edition Same Difference collection celebrates that children are the same but unique at the same time. Happy stripes in loving colours, clothes that stand up to the thrills and spills of being a child.
For forty years Swedish brand Polarn O. Pyret has created clothes that allow children to be children. Since their first striped t-shirt in 1976 they have always had a child’s perspective in mind, and have challenged gender roles.
Polarn O. Pyret’s clothes are smart, functional, bright, playful and durable. Over 30% of the range is organic and the brand prides itself on providing unisex colours and patterns that can be handed down easily.
From the softest organic cotton baby bodysuits to fantastic ski jackets, top features include adjustable waists in trousers, cuffs that roll down for growing room, and baby wear that can handle hot wash after hot wash. These are just some of the details that make a difference.
This year Polarn O. Pyret turns 40 and there are celebrations throughout the year!
“We are celebrating our anniversary by kicking off with fun spring/summer garments in organic cotton. Our anniversary will be filled with a variety of surprises and playful stripy happenings such as birthday parties and more playful collections throughout the year” says Karina Lundell, Head of Design at Polarn O. Pyret.
I was sent the Same Difference T-Shirt:
