San Francisco designer Cherry Lao sat down with us over coffee and answered a few questions about her Bitsybow clothing line. We are excited to be carrying her fun bibs and onesies.

Bitsbow Bib

What were your inspirations for creating the line?

Bitsybow was a passion project I started with the idea of cute and playful illustration. With my design background combined with my mother's experience making kids clothes, we decided to create Bitsybow. I get inspiration from my surrounding, things I do and places I visit. The first set of graphics was food related. I love food, so I created fun drawings of meatballs, egg and bacon.  

What is the most rewarding aspect of what you do?

The most rewarding aspect was seeing our customers excitement when buying Bitsybow for their little ones or as gifts for their friends little ones. 

What is the most challenging aspect?

The most difficult aspect was the production. I am a perfectionist and have high expectations, so getting the product exactly the way I wanted is crucial. Despite the challenges I am happy and proud of what we created for our customers.

Why should a customer purchase your products?

Bitsybow was curated and crafted with lots of love and care. We wanted to share our cute and playful designs and spread the smile through comfortable outfits.

Creative Profile: Robert Minervini

If you've never had the chance to see one of Robert Minervini's gorgeous murals, you're in for a treat. Based out of San Francisco, Minervini's work is both sublime and inventive, mesmerizing in his use of colors and landscapes. We're lucky enough to have him create an original mural for Aldea, and got a chance to sit down and chat with Minervini about his work and inspirations—check out our interview with him below.

Where are you from originally and how did the local culture shape you as a designer/maker? 
I grew up in North Jersey and the Philadelphia suburbs until college, then in Philadelphia for 8 years before moving to SF. I'm a first generation Italian American, so living in different places and crossing cultures has definitely shaped my taste in art. 
What initially inspired to make your product? 
I've been making murals for almost 10 years now. I was approached to make this mural for Aldea from a friend who is a designer for the company. It was a nice way to try and translate my painting style into a kid-friendly mural. 
What is your favorite step in the creation of your product? 
I love starting projects, when the possibilities seem endless. It's fun to see where projects end up creatively and how people interact with them.  

What hobbies inspire your designs/products? 
Photography and reading mostly. 
What is your favorite color? 
Normally I'd say blue-green, but recently I've been using a lot of semi-neon yellow orange and it's really growing on me. 

What is your favorite shape and why? 
The shape that comes out of making something unintentionally. 
What is your favorite texture this season? 
What did you see of interest today?
Some great cloud formations over the bay.
What is your motto?
Find beauty in the everyday.
