I’m Alys and I am the owner of TP Clothing, making children’s clothes from newborn up to 5 years.
I set up TP Clothing, in Rutland, in January 2021 during the second Covid-19 lockdown.
I started sewing for my own 2 year old daughter, after struggling to find children’s clothes on the high street which didn’t stereotype gender and because I needed a creative outlet to channel the anxieties and stresses of my work as a teacher during the pandemic. My hobby quickly turned into a passion and soon I was creating clothes for all sorts of little humans.
Now based in Northern Ireland, TP Clothing has a wide range of products for babies, toddlers and young children. I have collections of fabrics throughout the year based on the season, but also have ‘forever fabrics’ which are available all year round. The fabrics used are sourced from other small businesses and are available in every product. Products include (but are not exclusive to) rompers, dresses, leggings and baby blankets.
I also create bespoke outfits for birthdays, photoshoots and other occasions.
