Tea Collection inspires global connection
and curiosity for little citizens of the world.
We want to give kids the world, to help them discover
that no matter where we live or what language we speak,
there is so much we all have in common.
Twice each year, Tea designers go out into the world in search
of inspiration for our children's clothing collection. We discover new places
and faces, time-honored traditions and handmade creations. And then
we bring the world home and translate it into a twirly floral dress,
a vibrant graphic tee, a sweet baby romper.
We create children's clothes that
make the foreign familiar.
That small Tea square on our hems and pockets signifies something special:
globally inspired, well made, beautiful clothing.
We make clothes for all of life's adventures, big and small—the kind of clothes
kids love to wear (and wear and wear). Our styles are original and inventive
yet fun and approachable. They are colorful and bold, playful and wearable,
relevant and real and always exuberantly, unmistakably Tea.
As we travel, both around the world and across the street,
we keep our eyes—and our hearts—wide open.
We know there is more to every culture than beloved landmarks
and beautiful handicrafts. There is also need. There is vulnerability.
So wherever we are, we strive to be mindful and responsible.
We want to make real connections—
and a real difference.
Tea began with three pima cotton baby sweaters and
a dream of global connection.
In 2002, Emily Meyer and Leigh Rawdon embarked on an adventure to build
not just a timeliness collection of children's clothing, but a company that would
last. Now our team is global, reaching from our home base in San Francisco
to our retailers across the US and Canada to our manufacturing partners
in Lima, Hong Kong, and Bangkok.
Around the world and across the street,
people connect and come together in communities.
Our customers—and their little citizens—are
an essential part of the Tea Community.
We wouldn't be who we are, or do what we do, without the little citizens
of the world who give us so much cause for joy and so much reason to hope.
Wherever we are, we do things "the Tea way". We pave
our own path. We encourage curiosity and thrive on creativity.
We learn from anyone, anywhere, anytime.
We go there. Together.
