Let Yourself Grow – Botanical T-shirts
This year Katie Alice celebrates its 10th business Birthday! We can’t quite believe we have reached this amazing milestone! To mark this special occasion, we needed a special product launch. Something new that we hadn’t done before and a commemorative t-shirt felt like the perfect match!
We love the ethical way that Teemill work so we set to work coming up with the perfect design for our project, and so the Let Yourself Grow botanical t-shirts were born!
The Let Yourself Grow Design
The design started in the same way that most Katie Alice designs start – with an idea and a mission to find the most perfect piece of vintage floral artwork.
The wildflowers in this design represent the wild journey we have been on, especially in the last year. During this time, we as a business have had to take some risks and challenge ourselves to head into a new era of growth for the company. It has been a difficult and exciting time, and one that has been helped by lots of walks in the countryside and a newfound appreciation for nature.
We’ve all had to make some huge changes this past year and I think we’ve all grown as people in one way or another. Many of us have also turned to nature and to walking or being outside to help calm our minds and find sense in these crazy times. Let Yourself Grow is symbolic of not just what we’ve been through as a business but what we’ve all been through collectively. And we just couldn’t resist that pretty pink as the background for our botanical t-shirts.
A Fundraising Project
If you know us here at Katie Alice you will know that we love a fundraising project! Our last campaign raised over £650 (and counting) for Action For Children. There are still a few of our rainbow bags available on our main website which there is a link to at the top of the page.
For this project, we have decided to fundraise in aid of tropical reforestation for TreeSisters charity., Treesisters are an incredible reforestation and social change charity, based in England but working worldwide to empower women and help battle the effects of climate change. They focus on finding the most sustainable, ethical and respectful tropical reforestation project around the world. Protecting and restoring these tropical forests are essential to help the entire planet maintain a healthy planet and effectively a healthy lifestyle. As Treesisters say, “We can’t live without them”. We will be donating at least 50% of all profits from the Let Yourself Grow clothing collection to TreeSisters.

The collection is all made from beautiful and soft organic cotton, which has been resposibly farmed. They are producd in eco friendly ways to help have minimul impact on the environment. And once you’ve worn your clothes till they’re thread bare, you can return them to teemill who will recylce them into brand new clothes! Read more about this sustainable product here.
