LaMaMa (Spanish for ‘mom’), or me; Monika, a mother of two, a 4-year-old Tytus and a
When 4 years ago I found out that I was pregnant and would become a mom, I wished so much my son had a souvenir, something special, the one and only, made especially for him. Then, while preparing a layette for Tytus, I said, “This is ridiculous! I will never find a simple beanie (no frills, bows, teddy bears or any other embellishments) and colors other than pink and blue, not to mention the simplicity of the form itself.” I knew exactly what I was looking for but these kinds of clothes were just not there! Incredible, isn’t it?I had no idea whatsoever how to sew, but luckily I found a course where they teach you to do that. That's how I made the first Pants and Beanies. Proud as a peacock, I dressed
my son. Took some photos and here it is! Liked! Another proof that things don’t just disappear and your passion matters is the fact that my love for photography and the course I had taken came in so handy for promoting Lamama. My son and my friends’ children were the best models ever!
Obviously, I was surprised and astonished by the interest growing, but at the same time I felt motivated by all the questions “Where can I buy such clothes?”, which only confirmed my belief that the concept and Lamama’s philosophy is close to a lot of people’s hearts, and not only to mine.
The most important thing is the quality and comfort each time tested by my children :). I personally check, choose and approve fabrics (made in Poland, quality certified). Comfort is guaranteed by the characteristic wide straps and loose cut. Or maybe not! Maybe the most important thing is the design – simple and universal but never banal and dull! And colors! Lamama loves colors, a full rainbow range of colors available now in the collection.Yet another brilliant feature is that Lamama clothes are made to grow with your kid for a really long time. Satisfaction guaranteed!
It’s been almost 3 years since I came up with the idea... Lamama collection features around 30 different items, and has attracted nearly 9 thousand fans on FB and a huge number of satisfied customers, big and small :). And I still have a lot of new ideas, new designs and colors and accessories on my mind and in my heart!
I can’t ignore and not mention my TV debut, when I was invited to a breakfast TV show to talk about Lamama. That was an adventure to me but a great promotion for Lamama as well. So that’s the story. My warmest thanks and congratulations to those who managed to get through it. I invite you to explore the world of Lamama! But be warned: wearing Lamama is addictive!
