After a few years of studying Social Sciences at the University of Utrecht and at the Design Academy Eindhoven Máire started "Kleine Kunstjes" in March 2012 as a one-man business in Illustration and Graphic Design.
In the meantime a lot has changed. She already followed a ton of courses in the field of InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, sales, logo design and marketing, but also learned to build websites from scratch. And now combines the two worlds of print and digital design.
In 2015 she launched her first products. Illustrations by her hand were printed and painted on postcards, Tony Chocolonely, ceramics and clothing. She sells her products online, in (concept)stores and at sustainable/fair markets and events.

During the way of producing the actual products a lot of choices need to be made. About the colours, size, materials, price and so on ofcourse, but also about the way it’s is
Kleine Kunstjes wants to make people curious. Make them want to touch and smell the fibres and papers that are used in this products, but also care about the history of these products and the people who made them. Nature is her number one inspiration when it comes to illustrating, it seems only logical to respect nature and other people.
The postcards are made of 100% recycled paper and FSC-certified papers. Produced in a environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner. Also the ink is free of chemicals and alcohol.
When you choose to wear the clothes of kleine Kunstjes you’re automatically wearing the Fair Wear label.
Fair Wear Foundation is an independent, nonprofrit organisation that ensures these clothes were made under good labour conditions, produced by adults instead of children and that they are never paid less than the legal minimum. It sounds like that’s the only way it should be, right?
The T-shirts are carefully picked from the latest collections of Continental Clothing and Stanley & Stella and printed with biodegradable ink at the Katoenfabriek in Utrecht.
Most of the clothing is made of Organic cotton and by the production of our baby clothing only solar energy was used.
