Lex&Liv Footwear

So much has been happening behind the scenes at Lex&Liv for the past few months, and I apologise for leaving you out of the loop. I was under an exclusivity agreement with a different company, which prevented me speaking about my little project until now.LexLiv_logo_design_50B DSC_0074 I've always been pretty conscious of chemicals in my kids clothing. I started out really strict about how I would dress them but, as you know, we sometimes start to relax about those ideals after a while. Well, I'd recently begun reading about how terrible the leather tanning industry is for the environment and became increasingly concerned about dressing my kids in shoes made of chrome tanned leather (more on that scintillating topic in a future post). That's when the idea came to me to create my own line of soft soled baby and children's shoes, made of the softest and purest vegetable tanned leather. I'm awaiting the first shipment of leather from Germany, which should arrive in the next couple of days. I've been practicing my sewing skills on a piece of silver hide, so no fun colours to show you yet (but LOTS of silver). However, I will show you a little snippet of my website below (because, you know, I can't wait).

My moccasin site will be located at my old blog address, which is lexandliv.com. I feel bad that people are trying to reach my blog and instead seeing an "under maintenance" message. So, hopefully creating a new post will tempt those crazy little google spiders to crawl my new online digs and update the search results.

I've planned 15 different moccasin/ shoe styles for my first winter collection. Please bear with my sporadic unannounced drop-ins as I get everything sorted! xx Katerina [caption id="attachment_1332" align="alignnone" width="1610"]website_screen2 Screen shot: About Lex&Liv[/caption]
