BOGOTA, Colombia (WXYZ) - Production is already underway on a bulletproof clothing line for kids.
The owner of a factory in Bogota, Colombia, Miguel Caballero, says after the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, he was swamped with emails from parents asking about protective fashion for children.
Normally, his company produces bulletproof shirts, vests and other garments for adults, mainly high-ranking politicians.
Caballero says within one week, he was able to design and test several new bulletproof garments for children.
Caballero says his new kids' products, which include backpack-vests, t-shirts, and puffy vests, were produced for U.S. customers. He says all of the designs and colors were inspired by fashion trends in the U.S.
No word yet on when the clothing line will be available for purchase in U.S. stores.

Like so many around the world, Nelson Mandela's story captured the heart and imagination of a Detroit area photographer. Years later, she would capture some of Mandela's most magical milestones.
When he was released from prison, Nelson Mandela went on a tour in the U.S. but he only visited 11 cities. Detroit was one of them. He spoke at Tiger Stadium on June 28, 1990.
Reaction is pouring in from around the world to the death of Nelson Mandela.
