Childhoods Clothing is an original, cozy line of baby and toddler apparel. It started in 2011 as Meredith Pickup - while expecting her first daughter - began making tiny hoodies as baby shower gifts for her pregnant friends. Working from her small apartment during nap time and waking up a 3:00 AM to sew and fulfill each order by hand, the brand took off! Childhoods has since found high quality domestic manufacturers to handle production, with all pieces being made from high quality, laundered fabric milled in America.

Susan Petersen started making baby moccasins in 2009 after becoming frustrated by the lack of well-designed baby shoes. Using her second child, Gus, as a mocc-tester, and a bag of scrap leather she picked up at a yard sale, she began experimenting with designs. Working at her kitchen table, on a shoestring budget, Susan persisted through some disastrous attempts until she had created a pair of moccasins that not only looked adorable on Gus’ chubby little feet, but stayed on his feet as well.
Each pair of moccasins, whether being shipped to the rich and famous (or at least their kids), or shipped across town, are made with care, perfection and a love for the little feet they are intended for. We sincerely hope you enjoy our product!
Gathre began in 2014 on a blanket outdoors where kids were doing what kids do best--making messes. The last thing anyone needs is another thing to throw in the laundry. So we thought, "Why not make a leather blanket that's aesthetically gorgeous and wipes clean?" We launched a Kickstarter campaign and realized people were looking for something like this. Our leather mats range in sizes for things like diaper changes, highchair mealtimes, park picnics, and beach days. It's about stressing less to better live in the grand and simple moments all around us. Here at Gathre, we believe that much of life is worth gathering: the good, the memories, the landmarks, and mostly the people. Our products help you carry the beautiful with you as you gather your loved ones effortlessly and in style.

Iviebaby was born in 2011, when Elizabeth Ivie was pregnant with her first child, Everett. She waited to find out his gender until he was born, and in the meantime, she struggled to decorate his nursery. Nothing was gender neutral! Everything was so baby-ish. And that was the light bulb moment. She made her own bedding and liked it so much, she listed it for sale, hoping other moms might like it too.
And they did! For two years, she worked as a high school teacher during the day, while she designed and sewed for Iviebaby at night. Now Elizabeth has retired from teaching so she can be home with her boys and business full time, and the shop is brimming with pieces she designed herself, each handmade and shipped from Iowa.

The Soothe Shirt is a stylish nursing top for mom and a cozy carrying pouch for baby. It makes bonding with your newborn easy and simple. This product was inspired by a trip to Africa, where a woman named Lalabu taught founders Keri and Brian Fosse how she wore her babies.

When Meggan Wood's oldest daughter, Caroline, was born, Meggan found herself frustrated by the lack of beautiful, quality bags for moms with kids. She wanted a bag that was gorgeous AND hardworking, and one that wasn’t just for women with young children. After Meggan’s second daughter, Madeline, was born, Meggan sketched out her idea of the perfect bag, and Lily Jade was born. The real genius behind Meggan's idea is a removable, washable, multi-pocket organization insert that’s included with every full-size Lily Jade. The insert allows mommies to move effortlessly from diaper duty, to meetings, to girls' nights. Lily Jades feature details like backpack-wear options, premium full grain leather, and thoughtfully designed hardware and pockets.

Samantha & Jacoby Lischka started Modern Burlap in their family's lovely little Texas barn with endless product ideas for their son, Cross, and a shoestring budget to create them. This husband and wife duo knew the benefits that both muslin swaddle blankets and high-contrast, black-and-white designs offered for infants 0-4 months, but they couldn't find this combination anywhere when their son was born. In an effort to provide the very best for babies across the globe, they decided to create their own! Since November 2014, Modern Burlap has taken muslin swaddle blankets to a whole new level for the modern baby, offering signature black-and-white prints that research shows enhance eyesight and stimulate brain development in babies 0-4 months in particular. In 2016, they will introduce organic cotton muslin crib sheets, changing pad covers, and hooded towels to their line!

After three kids (in 3 years!) and three ugly baby books, I decided to survey other moms to find out if they liked their baby books. Turns out most people I heard from felt their baby books lacked style. Mushybooks was created to give parents a baby book option that isn't limited to 'pink and blue.' We know that finding the time and energy to fill in a baby book can be challenging. That is why each page has been carefully and beautifully designed to help make you successful in filling in your Mushybook. Mushybooks have the perfect balance of prompts, space for photos and room to write what YOU want to remember, all in a simple, clean keepsake book. Pages are easily added or removed using the Chicago Screw binding system. Unlike binder style baby books, Mushybooks lay flat and are easy to write in without the bulk of binder rings in the way. Another unique feature of Mushybooks is that pages can be added/removed easily including replacement pages if you make a mistake. Each book comes with a protective book sleeve to keep your book in pristine condition. Our books are printed in Vancouver, BC Canada and hand-assembled by us.
Nixi Lauroo began on a slightly different path over a decade ago as a handmade line of women's clothing and accessories. After nearly 11 years of evolution and a hiatus, followed by some life changing revelations that motherhood brings... the label was re-imagined and reborn as a darling children's line, now known as Nixi Lauroo. Having found a niche in the nursery rather than on the runway, Nixi Lauroo officially launched in the Fall of 2015, featuring a carefully designed collection of baby essentials, chic room decor, imaginative play sets, unique gifts, and fashion forward mini-apparel. Co-founders Kate & Andi are longtime friends (and now family by marriage!) and work seamlessly to combine imagination & practicality with fashion & function.

The Jones Market
In 2011 I created our very first necklace as a gift for a friend. She loved it so much she asked to buy another. I had recently left my job designing for a local photography studio to stay at home with our baby boy (we now have a little girl too!) and as word of mouth orders continued to stream in I decided to open up shop. Originally, I created the necklaces as pretty statement pieces for women, easy to dress up or down and lightweight enough to wear all day. It didn't take long to realize that babies LOVE them too. I spent the next two years researching and perfecting them and 6 generations later we have the tuggable, non-toxic necklaces you see today. What I love about our necklaces is they have always been designed for all women but those of us who are mamas don't have to sacrifice beauty for function. The fact that they are baby friendly is the icing on the cake.
