Back on track. . .

After a few months of trying to figure out the future of Eliza Kate Designs, we are back on track, though a bit behind on the spring/summer line. If you are not aware of the CSPIA, it is the new law regarding lead and phthalate testing on children's items. This is what had been us debating if we could even afford testing and still be profitable. At the moment, the testing requirements have been stayed for a year, so hopefully there will be an exemption for things like cotton textiles that by nature do not contain lead or phthalates before the deadline enxt year comes back around. I can assure that I have checked with the fabric manufacturers of the material used in Eliza Kate Designs about the testing and they have confirmed that their fabrics have been tested already and are safe.

The season opening trunk show will tentatively be sheduled in the end of March. Sneak peeks of the new line soon to come. . . I will say that it is fabulous, of course, and I am really excited about all the new pieces and how they are coming together!
