Ria Faust’s Sugarcane S/S 2015

Sugarcane

If there’s anything I learned from Sugarcane Toddler, it is the endless possibilities of local textiles.

The fabrics that Sugarcane designer Ria Faust uses is an ode to time-honored Filipino hand-loomed fabrics. The dresses are the kind of clothes I regret my mom didn’t make for me while growing up. She made me pretty voile with lots of smocking and floret appliques. I loved them, but looking back, wouldn’t it have been uncommon if she fashioned abel cutesies worth keeping as heirloom pieces for the little ones? But as a mom, I never thought either about dressing up Martine, Ericke and Alex in mini me abel even for once.

To help sustain tradition, Filipino Ria Faust started Sugarcane in 2013. It is a vibrant line of globally-inspired toddler clothes, sizes 12 months-5 years, made of carefully sourced handcrafted fabric by women artisans in Philippine rural villages.

In the Sugarcane Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook are softly-hued binakol vests and dresses in arresting traditional abel, accented with pom-poms for a dose of boho whimsy.

Limited-edition Sugarcane is available in select toddler boutiques in San Francisco, but the good news is Ria ships also to the Philippines.

BTW, moms out there, check out Ria’s blog, Sugarcane Life (with her little daughter) for doses of inspiration.
