Something is up on Society6.
Some of you have already noticed, while others have simply felt an unexplainable ripple in their day. That drop in cabin pressure is obviously the discontinuation of Kids and Baby Clothing on Society6.
This is a first for us and something we're pretty keen on.
After a year of producing children's apparel, we've made the call to discontinue the category in an effort to focus our mutual time, attention and resources on the products we feel are most aligned with our long-term goals.
You don't need to take any action for this to take affect. The options have been automatically removed from your shop and any purchases that were placed prior to discontinuation will still be fulfilled and earnings paid after the standard clearing cycle.
For us the loss of children's apparel represents a huge gain.
We've reinforced in ourselves that Society6 is not a mass-production factory interested in pushing your work on every possible product (hair scrunchies, anyone?).
We're a deliberate marketplace where the most talented artists and designers in the world make their work available on products for like-minded individuals looking for unique gear as an extension of their own creative expression.
And we're grateful for the honesty and support of our community in keeping that front and center.
There are new products on deck that we're very excited to share with you soon. Products very much aligned with our collective personal tastes that no other marketplace is offering.
