The Wren Collection is a line of uniquely created, modern children’s apparel & decor designed by kristy ‘wren’ maligro. She would say it’s more of a family affair – after all, the vision for the art is mainly inspired by her two crazy cute keikis (“kids” as it’s said in hawaii) and the unabashed beauty – both in culture & landscape – of the island of kauai on which she & her family live. The Wren Collection seeks to design garments to wear and decor for the home that are not only appealing to the lil’ ones but to their older counterparts as well. This is done by using only the highest quality of clothing & impeccable screen-printing (done by Wren’s own hubby, Kyle Maligro @ Doxaprint.com – see? it really is a family thing) lending the garments a comfortable feel & long-lasting quality. All apparel used is manufactured & printed in the US. The designs & quality sets The Wren Collection apart from the more easily found, mass-produced infant/children apparel.
“We love art. Creating, painting, drawing, sewing, altering and the like are part of our family’s everyday life. I suppose you could say it’s one step shy of an obsession for us maligro maniacs. Being a mama of two small keiki in a humid warm land, comfortable clothing is a necessity. I have found that being an artist living on this small island, unique children’s apparel & even decor is hard to come by locally. As a result I’ve painted many-a-paintings and cut-&-sewn funky lil’ clothes for them to wear. One thing led to another, fabric paint didn’t cut it any more and soon “The Wren Collection” was born. I have many visions of good things to come but good things do take time so please be patient. It will be worth the wait. The keikis seem to come up with the best, most creative ideas around these parts and are a constant source of inspiration.” – wren
