for kids. for the planet. for keeps.

the name mitani is an homage to my japanese-canadian grandmother, amy mitani.

mitani started as many small businesses do. as a new mom, i decided that working from home is in the best interest of my family (and it's future members). with the love, support + patience of my husband, and years of schooling + experience as a designer of children's rooms behind me, i let my passion for fabric lead me to create my own line. the majority of my work is sketched, cut, sewn and embroidered by myself but i also have a little help from some talented friends!

mitani is everything i love: modern & whimsical designs, the softest certified organic + naturally-dyed fabrics, and the ability to customize to have something special made for each of my customers.

mitani's business values focus on supporting local + small businesses first by purchasing my materials close-to-home and outsourcing only when necessary. this ensures the lowest-possible carbon footprint and helps small business owners, like myself, be able to provide for themselves, their families, and their communities. my products may not be the least-expensive of their kind, but i like to feel there is value in providing a high-quality item, sustainable materials free of toxins, and small, local manufacturing.

mitani is a member of LOCO BC. please visit for more information.

i find inspiration in day-to-day life, in the fabrics i source, in nature, in fashion and in my little girl.

Welcome to Mitani ~ For Kids. For the Planet. For Keeps.

Mitani is Modern, Whimsical, Chic and, on top of it all, Eco-Friendly (hey, why not!?).

All items are made with love and attention to detail in beautiful Vancouver BC. I hope you enjoy receiving your purchase as much as I enjoyed designing it.

Your item will be shipped to you wrapped simply and with care with either a recycled cardstock sleeve or craft paper depending on the size of the item. I don't like to use extra boxes, tissue or bags if you don't need them (i am an eco-aware business!) BUT if your item is a gift, or if you would like me to send it directly to the recipient, please let me know. I'll be sure to make it especially pretty for you in it's own box and with a gift tag and your message written on it.

If you have any special requests (such as a specific colour, theme or if you need something URGENTLY), please convo me or email me at trisha [!at]

Additional policies and FAQs
Though some items shown may be in-stock, most of my designs are made-to-order to allow for a certain amount of customization. It's nice to have options without being overwhelmed, right? Great! So, that being said, please allow up to 2 weeks for your item to be lovingly made. I will certainly let you know when it's ready to leap into your arms...

Wholesale orders are negotiable, contact me for more details.
