This week I have the pleasure of writing all about the gorgeous handmade British Brand GrayWolf Apparel. GrayWolf Apparel is a beautiful little Instagram shop from the lovely, friendly and far too modest Faye. Faye completely hand makes each and every one of her garments to order from her home in Portsmouth, all whilst being a busy Mum of two. I had the delight of coming across Faye’s impressive designs when I spotted a fellow Blogger’s children sporting a pair of her leggings and instantly needed to know more.
I love that when my parcel arrived everything was colour co-ordinated, black and white polkadot wrapping on the clothes and a perfect monochrome leaflet with GrayWolf Apparel’s custom logo, washing instructions and hashtag details. Not to mention her cute little handwritten thank you note on the back, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I love those sort of little personal details that you only get when shopping small.
At present Faye does all of her business through the wonderful world of Instagram and PayPal and it is so easy to contact her to enquire about her amazing made to order service. I decided to give Faye have full rein over the fabric choices (as I seriously couldn’t decide from her huge array of stunning patterns) for Willow’s shorts and leggings and Allana’s leggings and romper. I have to say I am completely in love with every single fabric choice she made, and they really suit my little ladies. I must add that GrayWolf Apparel offer both Organic and Non-Organic clothing, I think its so wonderful to come across a brand thinking about the environment and giving their customers both options.
‘Mint Feather’ Romper.
Fayes sewing skills are impeccable! My Mum was blown away when she saw the girls in their leggings and couldn’t believe they were handmade at home. Each of the items we have all fit beautifully, are crazy soft and have a lovely ‘stretch’ to them making them super comfy. A real testament to how comfortable they must be is the fact that Toddler Willow has now asked to wear a shorts and leggings multiple times and was pretty irritated to find they were in the wash!
‘Retro Flower’ Leggings.
I have to admit I am having real difficulty picking my favourite patterns but I think both sets of leggings are probably my top two. There is something about mustard yellow that I have recently come to love (actually lets be honest, I’m pretty obsessed with mustard yellow at the moment and I really couldn’t tell you why!!). Unfortunately we already have a slight stain on Willow’s leggings due to a small argument with some paint and a Toddler but otherwise they are still looking fab after a number of wears.
‘Mustard Hummingbird’ Leggings.
Due to the multiple wearing of these gorgeous clothes they have already been washed numerous times and I am super happy to report that they wash beautifully (I also think they may have accidentally snuck into the tumble dryer and luckily no shrinkage has occurred).
I have to admit that I am completely awe struck and blown away by the quality of Faye’s handmade garments and I am so excited to tell you that she is offering each and everyone one of you a 10% discount on her made to order leggings, shorts, rompers, infinity scarves, bibs and teething rings. All you have to do is comment of DM Faye via GrayWolf Apparel’s Instagram page and just simply mention ‘The Ordinary Mum’ during your order.
Please go and show support to Faye and her extraordinary British Brand by giving her some love on Instagram, check out her gorgeous garments and put in an order if you like the look of it, I know you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Faye for taking the time to create such amazing children’s clothes and accessories.
I am really enjoying learning more about some Britain’s wonderful small Brands and introducing them to you all, are you enjoying reading about them?
*We were sold these garments at a discounted rate for the purpose of this post.
