“She lost herself in the trees, amongst the ever-changing leaves. She wept beneath the wild sky as stars told her stories of ancient times. The flowers grew towards her light, the river called her name at night. She could not live an ordinary life with the mysteries of the universe hidden in her eyes." Christy Ann Martine.
Little Gypsy Co was founded in 2015 and evolved into the brand we are today, Alakai. We have a vision to create timeless pieces for the modern bohemian woman & child that reflect the beauty and freedom of the Australian lifestyle.
Our philosophy is that less is more.
We work ethically and sustainably in India and China with small family owned factories that use ancient techniques such as block carving and hand block printing to create our S L O W conscious pieces.
Our collections are a true representation of our passion for feeling feminine yet comfortable and each piece is carefully curated with a timeless nature, so that you can wear it for seasons to come.
Inspired by vintage treasures and memories under the sun , we want to bring your Alakai spirit to life, no matter where in the world you are.
A message from our Alakai Founder/Creative Director
After leaving my full time job with the birth of my first baby I noticed there was a hole in the market for fair trade bohemian children's wear. I've aways loved unique handmade pieces that can tell a story and have had a wardrobe of vintage fashion. Combining the two my brand was born.
As a mother of two I strongly believe in setting an example. I understand how heavily the fashion industry impacts the world so make it a priority to evolve in anyway possible so we can leave a lighter footprint on our beautiful planet. The way we do things and the way we treat people matter.
