Chunky Chooky

Chunky Chooky is the place to find funky threads and cool things for small people. Cath Young, an Australia-based designer, uses recycled fabric from a furniture upholsterer and some vintage fabric, plus wool felt & scraps of discarded clothes to create fun softies & happy pants. Imaginative children & adults alike are sure to love humorous creatures like Raver Riley. And who could pass up the sweet face on Clementine von Vanderbeetle? My favorite design may be a Wabbit named Camilla that is made from a mixture of recycled upholstery fabric, cotton and recycled denim. Of course, my favorite part is that she has a felt carrot in case she gets hungry. And what about those happy pants, you ask. They are children's pants that are designed to grow with your child - no zippers, no buttons. Made with a generous waist, they will fit for a long time and can be utilized as little shorts next season.
