The best basics! From Mabo Clothier

mabo basics

This is the time of year when I’m on the hunt for great pyjamas, cosy lounge wear, good layering pieces, warm underwear… We spend more time inside, so we want to be comfortable, and when we are outside in the cold, we want to be warm!

The cute collection of mabo basics ticks all of the boxes: I find them to be the perfect combination of sleep, lounge, underwear and layering wear. The super soft leggings are slim fit and super comfortable to wear, the envelope neck tops are snug fitting as well. With their pretty colours and fun stripes, they are perfect to layer underneath dresses or overalls, or simply wear as is. My children use them all year long, for all kinds of occasions.

It is admirable how focussed Emily (the owner and driving force behind mabo) is on producing her collections as ethical as she can. All of her pieces are made of 100% organic cotton, and are entirely made in the USA — from the cotton, to the custom low-impact dying, to the final sewn garment. No additives or blends are used to preserve shape or add stretch; Emily worked hard to make the cotton strong and soft and make sure that the cut of the garments is great, so the pieces keep their shape and quality by itself. This way no harmful substances are shed into the environment during production or after disposal of the clothes — which won’t need to happen for a very long time. My children have been passing down their mabo pieces for years, and when Casper eventually outgrows his, they go to team members with smaller children (and still have plenty of life into them, despite all of the wear they already got).

For us, the mabo basics are true basics, at home or when travelling (these photos I took when we were in pretty Puglia last month). Cosy, and cute!

p.s. For more cosy basics, we rounded up ten clothing pieces for cosy indoor days in our weekly Top Ten last week.
