Handmade childrens costumes by Atelier Spatz

The tailor to your child’s wild dress-up closet

Atelier Spatz started with Jo’s own kids growing up with vintage costumes that had been in her family for generations. Missing from the seafarer’s chest of costumes in her parents’ attic was a bird cape and so she made one. Over the past ten years, the bird capes have remained a signature costume although she has now designed and sewn everything from snow queens, ringmasters and superheroes to fairies and pirate costumes.

New Costume Design

Here come the superheroes

These superheroes have special powers!

SUPER sustainable: made from pure cotton in small batch production runs with the help of seamstresses in a social re-integration project.

SUPER personalised: add your little one’s initial or name to the design.

SUPER versatile: capes, cuffs and mask are reversible, so it’s double the fun.

They make the perfect birthday and Christmas gift and are ready to dispatch in 1-2 days.

Atelier Spatz - sustainable children's costumes made the artisan way

Autumn is dress-up season

Let’s make Halloween a less scary event. Each year, tons of costumes made from synthetic fibres are thrown away after one trick-o-treating season.

Jo’s focus at Atelier Spatz, has always been on making childrens costumes more sustainable. All aspects are important in this process: using predominantly natural fibres in the making, reducing waste during production, but also creating patterns that allow for the garment to grow along with the child and a design that is versatile and can be used for various costume characters.

So, when you buy a costume this Halloween check how and what it is made from and make it last!

Just like a bespoke or made to order design, all costumes are made in quality fabrics using predominantly natural fibres and made in a sustainble way in the studio or with the help of a local seamstress.
