Inkpony Interview

I happened upon this fantastic shop last month. I thought it would be wonderful to share with you their cute and eco-friendly baby onesies and t-shirts. The two creaters of this wonderful shop are Juliana and Erica. They gave me some wonderful information on them and their products and I am so excited to introduce them to you.

All of Inkpony's onesies and t-shirts are made of 100% organic cotton that is dyed with non-toxic, azo-free dyes to create an array of vibrant colors to choose from. we also produce our own images and designs for screenprinting, and the prints are done with non-toxic, water-based inks.

in continuing with their vision of creating a product with the lowest environmental impact, they use scrap material, recycled picture frames, and remnant cloth to build their screens.

Inkpony's philosophy is geared toward simple style: "good for you, good for the earth. we just hope you like what you see".

-What is your shop name and URL?

Inkpony. We are the ponies of ink. Happy ponies, of ink.

-What do you sell in your Etsy shop?

Juliana: We sell "conscious art for you and your babe," which breaks down to: stylish screenprinted stuff. organic onesies + tshirts, yoga mat bags, tote bags, snuggly rag quilt blankets, changing pads... Have an idea? We'll give it a shot.
Erica: Conscious, wearable art for you and your babe.

-What inspires your creations?

Juliana: Our babes, mainly. We were inspired to create stylish duds that were as good for the environment as they were for our own babies. a desire to find more 'urban' kids clothing fused with organic goodness led us to screenprinting + creating our own. Now we love the process, and particularly love getting that goodness out there.
Erica: life, people, situations, suggestions, each other, the heat of the moment

-What is your favorite item in your shop (currently for sale or previously sold)?

Erica: I have to choose 1! hmmm… yoga bag (active listing) and gray onesie w/ red camera print (sold). That’s 2…I know.
Juliana: Tough call. really. I have a boy and I'm pregnant with a little girl. right now, I'm digging the cranberry onesie with a antiqued white seahorse.

-What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?

Juliana: eager, imaginative and easy-going
Erica: strong, innovative, fun-loving

-What makes your shop unique?

Juliana: We're organic. We have color. And we have killer prints. That's unique to the world of babies.
Erica: Hmmmm…again…tough for me to narrow it down…our onesie color selection and screenprint design selection are pretty out of this world…haven’t seen anything like it yet.

-Where else can we find out more about you and/or your creations (please include a link)?

Juliana: We have a (super-duper novice) website.Iit's basic, but it's us... for now. We have posted a cool movie, and soon you'll be able to see more photos, too. You can also check out what we love and love to do at:
