the foundation of mile is closely connected to the births of our two children and the beginning of our friendship. with our children around, we recalled our own childhoods and immersed in them. we felt an urge to relive the beauty and joy connected to childhood. the summers at the granny’s, endless questions about the universe, learning to swim or read and absorbing children’s books. we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the children’s world, its endless width and depth. we had a desire to transform it in an elegant and yet playful way into children’s clothes that would be worn by us. our view was that through our clothes the children could learn about the world. the particular graphics and illustrations that we use on our clothes are not only pleasant to the eyes but also develop an imagination – one can be a little spaceman, skier or a tree fairy for a while.
