It’s always a thrill when two companies you LOVE decide to team up. Mightly is a clothing brand that celebrates individuality and self-expression. Their commitment to producing high-quality garments that make a bold statement aligns perfectly with Rebel Girls‘ mission of empowering girls through storytelling and positive role models. Together they have created a line of inspiring clothing for kids that encompasses everything from dresses to sweatshirts to accessories.
The Might of Mightly
Mightly’s playful patterns and vibrant colors perfectly suit children. The company prides itself on “thinking about kids, not trends” in its design process. In addition to using itch-free labels (a bonus for touch-sensitive kiddos), all Mightly items are made using certified organic cotton and non-toxic dyes. Doing so is great for customers and families living in cotton farming communities.
The company was founded in 2019 by three moms from Oakland, California; Tierra Forte, Barrie Brouse, and Anya Marie Emerson. Together they have three girls, two boys, one non-binary child, and over 40 years of apparel industry experience. Their vision is for Mightly to be the brand of choice for eco and socially-conscious parents, grandparents, and anyone looking for play-friendly, people-friendly, and planet-friendly children’s clothing.
Rebel Girls Rock!
Packed with tales of remarkable women throughout history and across various fields, Rebel Girls Books are an invaluable resource for children and adults alike. Here are a few reasons they should be part of your home library:
Representation and Diversity: Included stories are a beacon of inclusivity, highlighting the stories of women from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures.
Inspiration and Empowerment: Introducing children to the lives of groundbreaking women who challenged societal norms and achieved great things encourages readers to believe in themselves and pursue their passions fearlessly.
Educational and Informative: The writing seamlessly blends storytelling with educational content, making every book a treasure trove of knowledge.
Positive Role Models: Within the books, young readers will find many positive role models to look up to. From Malala Yousafzai and Frida Kahlo to Serena Williams and Amelia Earhart, there is a showcase of strong, courageous, and determined women who have left an indelible mark on the world.
Engaging and Accessible: The books are written to be accessible to young readers; engaging narratives bring the stories to life. The inclusion of vibrant illustrations adds another layer of appeal, making the reading experience truly immersive and enjoyable.
On a personal note, my girls and I have always been impressed with the quality and softness of Mightly clothing. And my elementary kiddo loves the samples we received of this specific line. Plus, books by Rebel Girls have been part of our household’s bedtime routines for years. I wholeheartedly recommend exploring such a fantastic partnership and supporting both these companies in the future.
