THE BRAND FOR FUTURE MOTHERS.
A BRAND OF PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING CLOTHING.
Limky* is the modern and eco-responsible nursing clothing brand.
We offer practical and comfortable dresses, sweatshirts, t-shirts and tank tops designed for breastfeeding and which can also be suitable for pregnant women.
Our semi-fit cuts for a feminine look that allow mothers to reconnect with their femininity.
“The key to successful breastfeeding is a woman who feels good. This also involves the clothes in which she feels beautiful and comfortable.”
Featuring a double front or side opening, our ingenious, simple and discreet opening systems make the daily life of future mothers, breastfeeding mothers or breastfeeding mothers easier.
A real asset to lighten the mental load of mothers who no longer know how to dress and who can't find anything to wear to breastfeed easily.
Clothing that also helps some future mothers take the step of breastfeeding outdoors regardless of when and where baby is hungry.
Some of our clothes have a loose cut and stretch materials without belly seams, allowing future mothers to wear their clothes from pregnancy .
AN ECO-RESPONSIBLE BRAND MADE IN FRANCE AND PORTUGAL.
Our productions are carried out either in our workshop in the North of France, or in our factory located in the Porto region, in Portugal . We carefully select our raw materials from organic farming. We therefore offer a 100% organic cotton collection whose raw material is sourced in Europe.
Our sweatshirts are made from recycled organic cotton or recycled PET, entirely woven at our manufacturer in the North of France.
Also, in order to act for the planet, and as a member of the 1% for the planet collective, we donate 1% of our turnover each year to associations that work to respect our planet. * Limky is a member company of the 1% for the planet collective
My path to motherhood really wasn’t innate.
I didn't grow up with the mother hen who was overflowing with affection and cuddles; Tenderness and maternal love is not something I really experienced in my childhood.
As an adult, doctors predicted that I would have difficulty having children. With all this, I had a hard time seeing myself as a mother and even less so as a breastfeeding mother!
In the end life produces some miracles, in my case I had 3.
Motherhood then confronted me with some harsh realities, including isolation; But also, personal embarrassment or that of society during feedings because I was often forced to uncover my chest or my stomach to breastfeed in public places despite my slight modesty...
“As my due date approached, my husband and I moved and moved away from family and friends. The days could be long, it was essential for me to go out for a walk and meet people. I didn't want breastfeeding to hinder that and force me to isolate myself further. »
This is why I want to act in favor of the normalization of breastfeeding and make the daily lives of mothers easier. It is therefore essential for me to realize the idea of being able to breastfeed in all circumstances!
This is how I decided to give birth to Limky and thus put my determination at the service of all women, with all the diversity of bodies and breastfeeding experiences. #Milky
Because “the key to successful breastfeeding is also a woman who feels good and therefore, who feels beautiful and comfortable in her clothes. »
THE FIRST PRODUCTION: A BET!
When I embarked on this project, we had to find a factory.
And that was the big slap in the face…
All the factories closed the door in my face one by one because I had production quantities that were far too low in their eyes and no one wanted to embark on a complex project, especially in the middle of COVID.
When I looked for investors it was the same thing , no one wanted to get involved in an issue that only concerns mothers... That clearly interests no one!
One day, while I was breastfeeding my daughter in a café, a friend with a career in the fashion and luxury industry introduced me to one of her colleagues, Isabella, of Portuguese origin and mother of two girls. .
A meeting that will bring my project to life.
Isabella finds my idea brilliant and invites me to visit her manufacturing workshop in Portugal to launch our first production financed by my small savings!
This is how the LIMKY adventure begins, with the daily ambition of helping young mothers and future mothers reconnect with their femininity and also find clothes in which they are comfortable to breastfeed in complete femininity.
Thus relieving themselves of an additional mental load during their postpartum period.
