About

Little Lark ~ fresh clothes + gifts for all

Little Lark was created in 2006 by Christy Nyboer, an internationally exhibited painter and sculptor now residing in Portland Oregon. Christy's creativity took a turn from the fine art to graphic design when she printed the first t-shirt for her first, infant son. Like birth of a child, Little Lark was born out of love and nurtured by creativity and exploration. From hand printed clothes to paper goods and housewares, Christy takes pride in creating unique products that are not driven by traditional colors and motifs... instead striving to create non-gender specific goods that exhibit simplicity and style with a sophisticated edge.

Inspired by beauty and wonder through the eyes of a child... many ideas and images have blossomed from old children's educational books, science textbooks, and Christy's fond memories of living in Alaska as a child. Little Lark is inspired by what is beautiful, terrific, and optimistic about our world.

All of Little Lark products are designed in house! The soft goods are sweatshop free, lead free, non-toxic, washable and individually screen printed by hand. Fabric labels are hand printed on recycled cloth (old t-shirts!) and ironed to the inside of each garment and packaging is reusable and creative. Large poster prints are silk screen printed by hand with beautiful metallic inks and wall clocks are hand painted, printed and assembled by Christy.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Little Lark orders are wrapped with pretty tissue paper making them always gift ready.

Please let us know if an order is a gift (because sometimes it is not obvious to us) and we will not include the purchase price on the gift receipt.

Want to leave a gift message? No problem, but please include this in the comments box to us while checking out.

Care instructions

Garments hand printed with metallic foil should be washed inside out to preserve the print quality. It is normal for the metallic foil printing to fade over time and frequent washing. Hang drying will also help slow this process down as well.

Art prints should carefully be unrolled and laid out flat on a large table to help it relax before hanging or framing. I suggest using some large, heavy books to help hold the print down flat. Plan on doing this at 3-4 dats before hanging or framing your art print.

Sizing details

Most of our garments run small in size compared with large box store brands. Each item is slightly different, so please send us a message if you are feeling unsure of what size to get.

We print on the following apparel blanks: American Apparel, Royal Apparel, Alternative Apparel.

Wholesale availability

Yes, we wholesale our goods all around the world! Please find us here on Etsy wholesale to place your first order.

Send us an email at christy@alittlelark.com and I will send you a link to our wholesale line sheet.

Custom and personalized orders

Sorry, it is difficult for us to take custom orders at the moment, but it never hurts to ask. We are sometimes able to fulfill requests if not needing the item in a short time frame.
