FAQs

What does Kira mean?

When it was time to name the brand, Christine thought "Kira" was the perfect match for her new adventure. The name carried many positive meanings in multiple languages: “ray of light”, “leader of the people” and even “sparkly”!  

What's the crown in your name stand for?

Our crown represents leadership and at Kira we believe that kids are the leaders of the future. With no inhibitions, the world is their playground!

How long has Kira been around?

Kira launched in November 2010 (6 years ago) at a local San Francisco baby fair! We screen printed and sold out first t-shirt there and haven't looked back since!

Is everything really made in USA?

You bet! From fabric knitting to cut, sew and dye, we’ve been able to work with local factories to keep all of our production in sunny California. This gives us the opportunity to work closely with our partners to ensure the highest quality of product, while helping our local economy! It’s a win-win! 

Why are your garment soooo soft? What fabric do you use?

The majority of our collection is made from GOTS certified 100% organic cotton, custom knitted just for us! Our jerseys are lightweight and breathable and our cotton ribs are super cozy with the perfect stretch.

Each shirt is garment dyed, giving it that super soft vintage feel that we all love. Because of the dyeing process, the color of each garment is slightly different, adding to the uniqueness of each garment.

We screen print all of our graphics with waterbased inks, giving them a super soft hand that gets softer with each wash.

What sizes do you carry? How is the fit?

We currently make clothing for newborn sizes up to size 8. In the past, our styles have ran small, so we recommend sizing up. With each new season, we are trying to adjust our sizing so the fit is more true to size. Each product page will have details and suggestions about fit. If you have any questions or suggestions please email us at weborders@kirakids.com!
