Designed and delicately crafted by hand in Brooklyn, NY, DISA is a line of simple, minimalistic and modern children’s clothes using only natural fabrics like cotton and linen, and organic fabrics when available. Designs for garments that were hand printed with nontoxic, soft hand inks are exclusive for the brand. Crafted in limited quantities and sizes and due to the handmade process, each unique piece of the collection is truly timeless and no two garments are the same. Already receiving great reviews from Vogue, I was able to chat with Daria Einhorn, founder and mom, who tells us more about the line for “cool” kids and what’s to come.
Tell me about the idea for Disa NYC. How did it come about?
When I started having kids, I discovered a colorful and cool world of children clothes. So I thought I could contribute to it by creating garments that would really suit kids’ playful nature. And I’ve always appreciated craftsmanship and attention to details that’s how an idea of handmade children clothes came along.
The products are all made by hand. Do you do each individual piece or do you have help?
I found two amazing ladies that make patterns and sew the pieces that I’ve designed. And we work with a small place in Brooklyn that does all the prints (designed by me) by hand.
Where do you source your materials from? Are they local in the US? NYC?
We use only natural fabrics like cotton and linen and organic when available but I source them mostly overseas.
Tell me about the first collection? Plans for the next?
The first collection is for spring summer 2015 and it’s a mix of modern, minimalistic and unisex pieces with the garments that have more of a European vibe. Think drop crotch pants and dresses with underskirts. The second collection for fall winter 2015 is in works and will include new styles (denim dresses and jeans) and cool add-ons like patches.
The perfect “playdate” outfit for the Disa NYC kid?
A tank top and drop crotch pants, unisex and easy pieces that don’t take away time or effort from the “playdate”.
Any plans on creating pieces for the Disa NYC mom?
I’d love too, probably not in the nearest future, but I’m working on a baby line:)
