Gender-neutral, sustainable children's clothing meets highly functional, resource-saving swimwear and activewear: INASKA and Manitober are launching the first unisex children's collection together.
Two sustainable companies from Hamburg, one mission. INASKA and Manitober have each been thinking about expanding their range to include children's swimwear for some time. It has to be gender neutral, true to the line, multifunctional, of course radically sustainable and made in Europe.
So why not put together expertise in unisex children's clothing and expertise in resource-saving materials and swimwear and activewear? Add great people and a big dose of fun and you have highly functional sustainable swimwear for kids.
Gender-neutral swimwear - is that even possible?
Garments that are so close to the naked bodies of small children, in a world that is so much shaped by gender role stereotypes, also raised many questions. 64 percent of parents in Germany have specifically looked for or bought a gender-neutral product for their children at least once. Nevertheless, many parents still rely on typical boys' and girls' clothing. So how should unisex swimwear be designed? Which items of clothing can actually be implemented gender-neutrally? How does swimwear have to be cut so that it actually fits different bodies? And is there actually a unisex swimsuit?
First priority: Protect our children!
Children should have fun in the sand, in the water and in the sun and at the same time be free from the early childhood imprint of gender role clichés, free from sexualization and simply be free in their movement. The delicate children's skin should only come into contact with non-toxic, skin-friendly material and be well protected from the sun's harmful rays. And last but not least: From production to sales to the take-back system, everything is based on the premise of preserving the beautiful planet for these children and future generations and making it a little bit better.Kids Shop
