Ines Moda Infantil - Mothering Earthlings

Ines Moda Infantil

Inspired by her grandmother who taught young mother's to cut and sew dresses for children, Isabel Lovina has turned a backyard operation that started in 1982 to a full blown exporting corporation today.  In Ubay, Pulupandan, Philippines, she has trained and employs many farmer's wives and town locals.

Ines Moda Infantil combines the tradition craft of hand smocking and hand embroidery with European inspired designs to create infant’s and children’s apparel.  Ines dresses make children feel and look special. Their pieces become investment purchases that are often kept and passed down to the next generation.  Each dress is meticulously smocked, embroidered, and stitched by hand.  A rarity in this age of mass production and machine dominance.
