About Wee Clothing
Marie Cole (aka Wee) - Designer/Maker
I love to sew. I learnt the basics of sewing at school and I have been sewing ever since. Combining my love for sewing and my love for nature and all things wild (having grown up surrounded by hillside and wildlife in Gloucester), I created a range of unique hand-drawn and hand-cut animal applique designs made from felt and I applied them to high quality, ethically produced baby and children’s clothes.
I began selling my first collection at house parties around Gloucestershire in 2007 and I continue to sell to regulars in Gloucestershire as well as to customers around the world. I am committed to producing locally in Gloucestershire and sourcing my materials from local businesses whenever possible. I continue to increase my use of organic fabrics throughout my collection in line with my journey towards sustainability.
The felt that I use for the appliques is made from 100% polyester. Created for use in the clothing industry it is machine washable on a 30 degree wash and colour fast so it won’t run or fade. The felt and glue that I use are both made from synthetic materials that are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
