nico nico is a small yet incredibly special collection made by the talented Sue Tsai. Her collection is consciously produced here in the USA (mostly in California) and made from extremely soft cotton jersey (mostly organic, when possible), her signatures are overlock stitching, shirt-tail hems on her t-shirts and unfinished edges. All I know is that kids LOVE them and can hardly wear anything else! The barrel shorts have a great fit, a nico nico favorite. Elastic waistband and tie at front with pockets. fit is true to size or slightly large - made in california - 100% organic cotton.
