The Tea Collection Bold Batiks summer collection is absolutely inspiring. The colors are pretty and bright and they draw their inspiration from Ghana, a coastal country in West Africa. For girls, the line includes three dresses and several tops and bottoms. My favorite dress is the Ghana Batik Dress ($69), a 55% linen, 45% cotton dress with a print inspired by an artisinal batik found in Accra, Ghana.

For boys the line offers adorable shirt and short combos that any little boy will love. The Kumasi Check Shorts ($39) are probably my favorite item for boys. They were inspired by the batik fabric dying technique and feature an elastic waistband and side pockets.

The bold colors found in the traditional crafts and textiles are interpreted into the playful knit Wagadugu stripes, great for the boy or girl with a stylish and casual personality. The Tea Collection Bold Batiks summer collection is available in sizes 12 months – 8 years at TeaCollection.com.
