Open the KALLIO workSHOP with your contribution!

Our mission is to provide you with simple and beautiful ways to engage in conscious design and living. But we need you to help take Kallio to the next level, and open the Kallio workSHOP, a consciously-minded retail and workshop studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The space will fulfill 3 exciting roles:

1) KALLIO HQ: Work/SHOP will be the new home and HQ of Kallio, so we can continue to grow and create our conscious kidswear line for you.

2) DESIGNER POP-UPS: The space will also be home to other like-minded brands through monthly pop-ups, bringing you an exciting and ever-changing array of beautiful and thoughtfully designed apparel, jewelry, homewares, and more.

3) WORKSHOP SERIES: We’re launching an exciting workshop series where artists and designers will teach simple and sustainable design techniques -- from urban gardening to re-imagining vintage to food styling and photography. We’re bringing it to you!

The studio needs some love before we can open for business this holiday season.

With your support, we will be able to transform this raw space with a new ceiling, natural floors and warm lighting. We’re also designing the space so it’s modular and multi-functional to easily accommodate the Kallio studio, the designer pop-up shops, and workshop series.

OUR STORY

Kallio started as a consciously-minded kidswear brand out of Brooklyn, New York.

After working in the fashion industry for 10 years, I was inspired to create Kallio because I saw first-hand how much waste we’re creating. It’s hard to believe, but roughly 85% of textile waste ends up in landfills, which amounts to enough material to re-create the Rocky mountains.

With Kallio, I saw a wonderful opportunity to help fashion a cleaner, better future by creating a modern yet classic kidswear line 100% made from re-purposed men’s shirts. We give love and attention to the quality of our designs, preserving original detailing to create unexpected, modern classics that kids can be kids in. 

What We Stand For

Our process is simple yet thoughtful.

  • We believe in local. It starts with locally sourcing high quality fabrics that are then cut by hand in our small Brooklyn Studio. Each garment is sewn by a women’s cooperative in New York’s historic Garment district. By staying local, we are able to support the community and reduce our carbon footprint.
  • We design for form + function. Every garment is hand-crafted with high-quality materials to create unexpected, modern classics that kids can be kids in.
  • We value connection. Original detailing hints at each garment’s story, and encourages conversation about where our clothes come from and the memories kids make wearing them.
  • We create community. Collaboration with like-minded people is key to fashioning new ideas that drive sustainable solutions.

JOIN US and become part of the solution to a more conscious way of living.

Remember, Kickstarter funding is ALL OR NOTHING! So in order for us to open the Kallio workSHOP and deliver your one-of-a-kind Kallio pieces, SPREAD THE WORD to your friends, family and other Kallio supporters via Facebook (Kallio), Twitter (@kallioNYC), Instagram (@kallioNYC) and Pinterest (kallioNYC).
