WHAT WE DO
We create new products and services for creative children and growing-young parents around the world, who want to enjoy their lives, have fun and grow away from the monster of routine in the digital age.
From fun unique clothes and accessories to children toys that give meaning to our collections or beautiful homeware that lifts our feet off the ground.
At el mercadito we work in mostly handmade factories in:
Buenos Aires, Miami and Montevideo and Madrid.
We love learning from the local manufacturers’ know-how.
We are kids stuck inside adults; acting seriously funny and caring for the world and everything that is part of it.
We want to be responsible for our social and environmental footprint, so we strive to create products that are kind to our environment, especially knowing how textile production and the clothing sector negatively impact the planet. Although producing goods will always have an impact, our goal is to make it minimal.
At a time when environmental protection is no longer an option but rather the key to our future, sharing this commitment with our children becomes an obligation.
At el mercadito, we constantly work to achieve sustainable production of the collections, and at the same time, we believe in the power that kids have to understand, act and transform, even more than adults. The protection of the environment is a responsibility, but we can protect it while we have fun.
