We are thrilled to be the first and only baby activewear apparel brand and we don’t take this lightly! Our team is small and spirited; but devoted to keeping infants and toddlers sweat-free, cool, protected and happy so that they (and you) can enjoy each day to the fullest. Our mission is to make quality baby clothes that can easily endure the daily life of an active infant or toddler -- from the sandbox to a birthday party to dinner with the grandparents-- wash and repeat. We believe in quality over quantity... and baby clothing is no exception. Lark Adventurewear is functional, fashionable, environmentally friendly, and totally safe for your little one’s sensitive skin. Getting outside is a great way to spend quality time with the whole family. We make baby clothes so parents and babies can stay active and explore the world around them in comfort.
Adult activewear is made with synthetic fabrics and chemical finishes in order to create moisture wicking properties. These synthetic fabrics and chemicals aren’t something we would want for our baby’s delicate skin. We have developed a proprietary natural, eco-friendly moisture wicking fabric. Using capillary action and benefits inherent to the natural fabrics we have chosen (cotton and bamboo), moisture is drawn away from a baby’s sensitive skin. Our activewear is Oeko-Tex® 100 Certified, whose standards ensure that our fabric is made with environmentally friendly processing. Lark Adventurewear also features easy-open tops and bottom-to-top zippers to make clothing and diaper changes as easy as possible.
Our exclusive, natural moisture wicking fabric created especially for babies and toddlers.
Inspired by her own family’s passion for living an active lifestyle, Pallavi Patil founded Lark Adventurewear in 2016. When her son, Vyan, was born, she was in awe of his curiosity of nature, and his curiosity as he explored the world around him. They went on many hikes and walks together, and this is where the concept for Lark Adventurewear began to take shape. While on their outdoor excursions, Pallavi began to notice that while she was staying dry and cool in her active t-shirt and yoga pants, Vyan was hot, sweaty and damp in his cotton clothing. This led them to cut their time outdoors short since baby Vyan would get easily overheated and sticky. Pallavi began to search for safe activewear for babies to no avail. She recognized the need for eco-friendly, infant activewear that would keep babies cool, sweat-free and comfortable, and Lark Adventurewear was born.
Pallavi lived in New York City and Los Angeles for many years before returning to her Pittsburgh roots. When not working on Lark, she can be found experimenting in the kitchen or on a hiking trail with her husband, son, and dog Bodie.
