Vendor Spotlight: Rebel + Heart

Stylish Essentials for your baby!

Sandra Samu draws inspiration from her children.

Their youthful and candid spirit transforms her graphic designs for her children’s clothing wear line Rebel+Heart.

Rebel+Heart is an Hamilton brand that offers handmade baby & children’s clothes, nursery decor and accessories. The designs are also sold worldwide on Etsy, and local market spots, like Craftadian.

Samu’s interest in fashion goes back to when she was young, growing up with a mom who was a seamstress.

“When I was home on maternity leave, with my second daughter, I stumbled across Etsy, loved the format and I decided to go for it,” Samu said.

Rebel+Heart is a cool and stylish collection with a whole lot of personality.

Her clothing and accessories feature quirky appliqués and designs, like a tie up sleeper, a comic hero raglan shirt and donut pillows.

Her clothing also incorporates uncommon colors in children’s wear, like black. For the Craftadian Spring Market she will be bringing her graphic black and white prints.

People are generally shy to put babies in black for some reason,” Samu said. “But black, I think, is so beautiful on babies. It’s like, ‘Why not?”

Visit Rebel+Heart at Craftadian Spring Market on Saturday, April 8th taking place in McMaster Innovation Park, Hamilton.
