We’re big fans of Tea Collection‘s cute kids clothing. So I was really excited to check out the San Francisco-based company’s new collection — Indigo Arts.

From cool hoodies and tees to pretty wrap dresses, it borrows heavily from the designs and patterns seen in every day Japanese work wear including beautiful textile traditions like indigo tie-dye (called Shibori).

Back by popular demand is the Pima Cotton Kimono Robe ($75), a super cozy sweater jacket for boys and girls that will become your child’s fave fall outerwear staple. I also love the Sukumo Pant ($39) for boys. At first glance, they look like jeans but upon closer inspection you’ll realize they’re a soft, relaxed knit pant with an elastic waistband that feel just like sweatpants!

And as always with Tea, there is a great selection for little girls. Named after a hip Tokyo neighborhood, the Shibuya Floral Dress, pictured (on sale for $44.50 reduced from $55), sports a pretty pattern inspired by an antique floral print.

Most items come available in sizes ranging from 6 mos. to 8 yrs. — plus you’ll find lots of great finds under $40.
