Material is probably the least noticeable gender difference in children’s clothing. However, look closer and you’ll notice that itchy tulle, sequins and glitter fabrics are common ground in the girls’ section, communicating the idea that it is of bigger importance for girls’ clothes to be pretty than comfortable or functional. Yet, in the boys’ section, their clothes are higher quality. The fabrics are thicker, sturdier, and longer wearing. Naturally, this raises another pain point for parents and caregivers - girls’ clothes are flimsy and impractical to play in.
At Hello Society, our goal is to offer comfortable and quality driven kids clothing that can be passed down.
