Let me introduce myself! My name is Melinda, I am a sewing fanatic mum of two, living in The Hague, the Netherlands. I have come from a family where most of the women have worked in the fashion industry, my mother is a professional dressmaker, known of her beautiful tailoring and sewing skills. So probably the passion for creating something useful and beautiful is coded in my genes.
I have learnt to sew a couple of years ago myself next to my part time job as a preschool teacher. Due to my job, I have discovered the importance of good quality clothing especially for children, and that was the time, I have got the idea of Minty Moon – a vintage and basic inspired handmade clothing line for children from birth till six. I am constantly searching for patterns to create comfortable items with timeless style so more generations of children could enjoy wearing them.
Where I can, I work only with only organic materials. 100% cotton poplin, organic jersey and double gauze are my favourites. This is important both for the sensitive skin of the little ones and also for the environment. I am choosing my suppliers carefully and I love to cooperate with my formal classmate, Betti from Petit Faon Prints who paints/draws the cutest prints for children’s apparel.
