Summer holidays have arrived and as usual parents are looking for the chance to give their children moments of aggregation, to make them feel free and happy-go-lucky within nature.
Many of us are working, and in a year full of organisational difficulties, it is now proving difficult to find an ideal place where kids can spend time with each other and socialize. They have been tossed around for months between home schooling in several places, various relatives and smart- working mums. The very few days at school were spent wearing masks with teachers repeating the importance of keeping their distance, alternating with afternoons spent at home with gyms closed, no group sports and socialising almost cancelled.
In our opinion, the time has come to organise something special, unique, educational and fun for them in a healthy, free and open environment, as only the mountains can be.
And we are not the only ones to share this view. Unfortunately, the pandemic has highlighted the growth of problems linked to anxiety and depression among children, and there is no doubt that action must be taken. The Montessori schools’ appeal “Free the children in Nature” is loud and clear.
As a response to this appeal and to help you take this direction – one we strongly believe in- we would like to point out a few possibilities of taking children to the mountains and getting them back to a social experience in contact with nature, a beautiful nature made up of rock and earth, enchanted woods, magical peaks and cool streams.
Monvic and children's clothing
We have always believed that children should spend as much time as possible in natural environments practising motor activities, and that the task of us adults is to stimulate their curiosity, teach them love and respect for plants and animals, help them socialise and stimulate their creativity.
This is perhaps why we are so passionate when it comes to creating T-shirts, trousers and above all the graphics and designs for children’s sportswear. Because we put our thoughts for them into these creations, we take the opportunity to give our contribution, to make them move freely by wearing natural but resistant materials, so that they can run and scratch without problems. We choose cheerful and joyful colours for the fabrics, so that parents can recognise them hundreds of metres away, coloured dots popping up like mushrooms in the green meadows.
We want to help them to be creative, not fashionable, we design an enchanted world for them made of little men climbing, flowers, dice that need climbing and fried eggs on t-shirts.
