Meet Kathrin

Meet Kathrin, a busy parent who understands the everyday struggles of buying and selling children's clothing during those magical first five years. With two primary school-aged children of her own, Kathrin has experienced first-hand the challenges that come with constantly updating a child’s wardrobe. Buying new clothes every few months seemed unjustifiable while navigating marketplaces and second-hand markets proved to be time-consuming and overwhelming.

But it wasn't just the overwhelm of buying clothes that concerned Kathrin. She also became mindful of the waste generated by the traditional approach to buying and selling children's clothes. When learning about the impact of fashion waste on our planet, she felt inspired to make a difference and create a community of like-minded parents who share her passion for making an impact and creating a brighter future.

Inspired by similar successful models in the US and Europe, Kathrin set out to create a revolutionary concept for Australian parents; a subscription-based service for children's clothing, allowing parents to access quality and sustainable garments at an affordable price. By empowering parents to make sustainable choices for their children's wardrobe, she believes that together, we can all make a significant impact on the fashion industry and the environment.

“Little Renters was inspired by the need for change. The children’s clothing industry in Australia is ready for a revolution, with too many clothing items polluting our planet during production, and later ending up in landfills after a few wears. Our circular solution empowers parents to make sustainable choices through renting while still having access to quality and affordable clothes for their little ones.”
