Persephone Wilson knows a thing or two about children's clothing: She has two daughters of her very own. So the longtime South Valley resident set up her kids’ apparel business, P's Tees, right in her own neighborhood. Wilson's pint-sized artistry is displayed on everything from T-shirts to dresses and onesies, with children’s sizes ranging from newborn to 4T. Wilson’s designs include skulls, lightning bolts and light bulbs—motifs you won’t find at a regular department store.
In addition to creating some pretty nifty wearables, Wilson also purchases organic cotton and non-sweatshop produced garments and dyes them all by hand. The remnant fabric is cut and shaped into her appliqué designs, which are then hemmed for durability. P's Tees clothing is engineered to look good long after your child outgrows it, and pieces are priced around $25 each. Take that, Wal-Mart!
If you have a particular design or color combination in mind, you can place a custom order with Wilson by calling 401-8487 or e-mailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
