miniTranquiliT is a locally-sewn clothing line filled with versatile, seasonless designs crafted in eco-friendly, vegan fabrics.

All pieces are custom made with each online order and a portion of all proceeds are donated to Pigs & Pugs Project.

Launched in 2002 with yoga pants and tees (that’s where the name TranquiliT(ee) came from), designer and creative entrepreneur Kimberly Wilson dreamed of a chic and comfy clothing line that transitioned easily from ballet class to board meetings—and everything in between. Here’s a short video about TranquiliT’s origin.

A lover of style since her early days hiking the Oklahoma hills in a bonnet, bell bottoms, and graphic tee with a purse in tow, she became obsessed with mix and match knit clothing in the 1980s (remember Units and Multiples?!).

In 2004 she moved beyond the tees and yoga pants to add trendy tunics and dresses to wear alone or over yoga pants, along with luxurious wraps in flowy, flattering designs to fit many bodies.

TranquiliT is more than an eco-friendly clothing company. We are a small, socially conscious business that strives to make the world a better place by:

 

TranquiliT has been featured in The Washington Post, Washingtonian, Shape, and more and is a beloved staple in many closets. In 2010, TranquiliT was named as the “Rising Star” at the Eco-Chic event hosted by Fashion Group International.

When not working on new designs, Kimberly is a psychotherapist in private practice and serves as the president of Pigs & Pugs Project. She pens lifestyle books, leads retreats globally, and dreams of Paris.
