A Chat with Peta Stinson
Today's blog is a little virtual sit down with the gorgeous Peta Stinson from the Sapling Child. With celeb Mum's like Teresa Palmer, Kate Waterhouse, Molly Sims, Rebecca Judd and Jade Jagger among their fans, Sapling's divine new 'Flight' collection featuring sweet prints, zip rompers and double stitched cuffs will no doubt be another must have for all babies of the world. Off the back of a hugely successful range co designed with American actress Jaime King, this year is sure to be another huge one for this amazing Australian brand.
What has been the highlight on the journey Sapling has taken you on over the past few years?
The opportunity to travel to some amazing places with my family has been amazing.
Favourite piece from past collection?
Flamingos! My all time fave.
Favourite piece from the new collection?
So HARD, I think it’s the paper planes in the zip suit. The zips are just SO functional, and so easy for middle of the night nappy changes.
What is the inspiration behind the prints in the new collection?
This collection is inspired by things that fly! We incorporated blue birds and paper planes to pull together a small collection that represents the things that fly through the imaginations of little ones.
Tell us about the new design changes and why you're excited about them?
We’ve made quite a few changes to our designs this year. Our team continuously searches for ways to improve our designs. Every season, with every collection we look at each piece and ask ourselves “how can we make this better for the babies who wear them”? This season sees us: Implement closed flat seam stitching to protect from irritating inner seams. Add back leg pleats to allow for extra nappy room without compromising fit. Double needle stitch every binding, hem and seam for durability. Introduce longer cuff lengths for folding up and down to allow for longer wear and growth. Switch to non-toxic iron on labels, no more itchy tags. We are all so proud of these changes, and believe we are able to give you the absolute best quality baby wear available in the world.
Now you're living in Canada, tell us the best bit about living there?
The best thing is being close to family and friends. City living in Toronto is pretty amazing though, wonderful restaurants, museums, everything you could imagine for the kids, great schools, wonderful new experiences and SNOW!
What do you miss most about Australia?
The weather, the beach, the outdoor lifestyle, the bold and fearless women, the fresh and forward approach to fashion….oh so many things!
What other brands do you admire and why?
I admire brands that keep one eye on making a noticeable difference in the world, and that simultaneously have the other eye on creating functional design pieces that last. Brands like Tom Organic and Numpfer represent those qualities.
And one for fun – it's your last day on Earth, what would you do?
Find the nearest King size bed, pile my husband and kids in and snuggle them tight.
