Nixie clothing is a line of high-end children's fashions that is eco-conscious. Based in the UK, the company was started with the understanding that we often dress our children in mass-produced clothing that will eventually end up in landfills; not to mention that the conditions under which the clothing was manufactured are horrible, and might have been made by children. Nixie operates on the philosophy of sweat shop free and fair trade
The inspiration behind the designs was taken from nature: opening of flowers and the movement of butterfly wings. They use vintage fabrics that have been gathered over years, in combination with reconditioned textiles, i.e. "recycled."
