The Bow Collection – collaboration with Girl with the Green Bow

The Girl with the Green Bow is Rebecca Patterson who was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease in August 2016.

The Bow collection is inspired by Girl with the Green Bow, with a whole new range including tees, onesies and a tote, and much more! Rebecca lives by the motto ‘mito picked the wrong diva’. So we have customisable designs for ‘mito picked the wrong…’ family, parents, brother, auntie and more!
