Mightly organic children’s apparel and Of an Origin sustainable motherhood brand,
join forces to bring family-friendly, non-toxic, fair trade and organic apparel to market
OAKLAND, California, August, 2023 - Children’s organic, fair trade apparel brand, Mightly, best known for its non-toxic pajama sets, and Of an Origin, intentionally designed apparel made for all stages of motherhood, have announced a collaborative, small batch capsule to release October 15, 2023.
The partnership began when Mightly CEO, Tierra Forte, an industry veteran who was part of the team that developed the national Fair Trade Apparel Factory Program, approached Candice Collison, Co-founder and CEO of Of an Origin, with a background in DTC marketing for brands like The North Face, to create a reliable collection of affordable, family-friendly apparel.
Aligned with a commitment to bring families safe and stylish clothing made from environmentally friendly and responsibly sourced materials, the collaborative capsule boasts matching styles, for mother and child, that are interchangeable and perfect for everyday wear and family photos.
Fusing functionality with fashion, the Mightly x Of an Origin collection combines premium comfort and longevity of wear with effortless style. For mother’s, each piece is thoughtfully designed in silhouettes that promote confidence through pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. Details like front-snap closures for easy breastfeeding, and strategically placed pockets for hands-free pumping, create ease for day-to-day convenience: an assortment of convertible v-neck pima cotton tees; crossover bralettes, a floral throw-on robe; and stretch rib knit dresses, tops and flare pants to provide shape, form and comfort in sizes XS - 2X.
Complimentary “Mini-and-Me” children’s styles, backed by Mighty’s renowned Fair Trade and GOTS certifications, include complimentary long sleeve pocket tees, a ¾ sleeve skater dress, flare leggings, stretch rib baby beanies and a botanical knit baby turban. Newborn to kids’ sizes range from 0-14.
The collection features a limited edition “flower child” botanical print accented by complimentary colorways of navy, black, mid blue, olive and rust. The hand drawn print was created by Mightly’s Creative Director, Barrie Brouse, who was inspired by the plants and butterflies in her small urban farm in Northern California.
Each piece is responsibly made in a Fair Trade Certified facility in India from GOTS Certified Organic cotton which has been sustainably farmed using 71% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton farming. The cotton is sourced from Chetna Organic, a farmer-owned cooperative that supports smallholder farming families in India while providing schools, vocational training centers, sustainable initiatives, women's enterprises and revolving loan funds to remote farming villages.
“I've always admired the incredible certified, non-toxic, sustainable and responsible supply chain that Mightly has established.” Said Candice Collison, Co-founder of Of an Origin, “We knew that together we could bring something really special to life!”
“What I'm most excited about is the opportunity to work more closely with Candice Collison. We met years ago and instantly bonded over our shared entrepreneurial spirits and commitment to sustainable fashion,” says Tierra Forte, CEO of Mightly. “Candice never ceases to impress me with her drive, creativity and ability to do a lot with a little!”

Of An Origin
Of an Origin is a responsible apparel brand that aims to be the most versatile and impactful clothing line a woman can own. We are committed to using natural fabrics, responsible production, and to continue to enhance our design and processes towards building a more sustainable world. Founded by a mother to three young daughters, Candice Collison wondered why the amazing qualities she loved in sustainable and minimalist fashion brands didn't exist for maternity and postpartum. While breastfeeding, Candice suffered through postpartum anxiety and depression. She found dressing her postpartum body for nursing and pumping inaccessibility intensified her anxiety and frustrations. Paired with her diagnosis of chronic thyroid disease, it was important for Candice to find natural-rich clothing free from potentially harmful endocrine-disrupting synthetics. Candice has a passion for simplifying the complicated, and she wanted to bring flexible fit, style, and function to all stages of motherhood.
