Comments Off on Shop Spotlight: Luv Mother

“The seed was planted in the Fall 2010 after having our twin girls Léla and Quinn. We were lucky to receive a bunch of merino wool hand-me-downs from family living in Norway but once the girls outgrew the clothes we couldn’t find suitable replacements in North America. As parents who have spent a lot of time playing and exploring the outdoors, we were already big fans of the comfort and natural technical benefits of merino but were left scratching our heads as to why more kids brands didn’t offer up more quality wool options.”

On the blog today we are taking a look into the story that started Luv Mother, some of their peeks along the way and goals for the future. Luv Mother stands out to me as their items are made from only the best quality and the comfort is very much appreciated (I could prove this as Sophie loves the beanie and neck warmer, where others I have tried annoyed her). Having the opportunity to learn more about this Canadian brand is such a pleasure.

Learning from businesses around you is one of the best ways that you can grow yourself. I love hearing about the different challenges and rewards that entrepreneurs come across through their businesses, you can see how they overcame different challenges and what has made them stronger. When asking Luv Mother about some of these they replied, “The biggest challenges have come from being a complete unknown in the business and gaining the trust and confidence of our suppliers and customers. It didn’t take long to realize just how big and global the apparel industry is and how ‘small’ a small company can be. Not to mention we primarily sell directly from our website so getting the word out about the brand has kept us keeping on.”

“Thankfully the collection has been very well received. The positive feedback and PR attention is opening new doors and motivates us to keep spreading the word.”

“Making the product in the country we call home was definitely the right call and has been extremely gratifying. The entire process, from concept to production has been very collaborative and the results are nothing short of amazing. We’ve gotten to meet and learn from some seasoned, talented craftsmen and women along the way and have forged relationships and knowhow that will always be part of the brands DNA.”

“The fact that we are a kids brand lets our work and family lives overlap quite a bit and spending more time together is always a huge plus.”

For myself when looking for clothing for my children I want to be sure that it is going to be worth the money that I am putting into it. Our kids grow so fast but they also put a lot of love into their clothes with how active they are everyday. Everything from the material to where it is made is a very important factor. Luv Mother insists on using only the best materials for our children’s skin for comfort and durability.

“Our first collection is entirely made using soft, natural and highly functional merino wool. It’s the perfect fabric for active clothing and kids are, if nothing else, active. Merino keeps you warm when times are cool and the other way around too. Effectively managing the body’s microclimate, even if you didn’t know you had one. The merino wool found in any luvmother™ garment is sourced from either certified non-mulesed or ceased-mulesed farms in Australia and New Zealand. All farms must comply with regulations governed by the RSPCA and the New Zealand Animal Welfare Act. Our mill partners encourage sustainable farming practices including environmentally aware processing, “landcare” re-vegetation projects and the creation of nature corridors.”

“Oh yeah, dispelling old myths, its not itchy, is durable, has a built in SPF and your kids won’t want to take it off….” — agreeing full heartedly to this as Sophie was beyond loving her items!

Some of the top three best sellers for Luv Mother right now include; are ‘the Everyday Shirt’, ‘the Aha Hoody’ and our ‘Everywhere Crew Sweater’. The new accessories line released in December are also go to favourites!

Luv Mother has a very very bright future ahead of them it is very evident, I love the goals they have established from the beginning and continue to stay focused on and work towards daily. Luv Mother shares, “One of the main goals established right at the get-go was to never make too many things, learn from experience, minimize compromise and constantly try to improve our existing designs. Starting this summer we’ll be releasing small, seasonal capsule collections that are fun to develop and allow us new ways to spread the luv.”

  • New hair, who dis?
  • We surprised Sophie at her birthday party and had a friend bring their pony over to give the kids rides. After the party she said “Mom can I have that exact same birthday party next year?”

Last week, @panago_pizza delivered the new @BeyondMeat vegan pizzas as well as the @Gardein Breaded Chick’n tenders!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Even though I’m not vegan myself, I’d heard so many great things about the new plant-based products from @panago_pizza I was so excited to give them a try! Out of the two new additions, the plant-based Beyond Spicy Calabrese was my favourite, and trust them when they say spicy.⁠⠀

  • Quick day trip to the island, I took a tip from all of you and wore my lulus in anticipation of a full belly.
  • Cheers to Thanksgiving friends 💫 💕 I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to contribute to 8+ of @ilikeherstylevancouver’s print magazine. They’ve created such a great space for women to connect, inspire and encourage. My last contribution shares how I wear summer dresses & rompers in the fall, and I must say is one of my cutest articles yet. Also big thanks to @juliechristinephotography for capturing such cutie shots I can never pick just one.

You can find the print mag at all their rack locations (see details on website) or online.
  • What a joy it was to go out yesterday and show my support to two ladies who are such incredible women, role models, mamas, creators ... seriously all the things.

Can’t wait to flip through the pages of #fraichefoodfullhearts cookbook and be inspired to make some new things. Such a pleasure to celebrate with you both @jillian.harris & @fraichenutrition — you both radiate love and joy.
