We love our customers

These towels are absolutely adorable! We were gifted one years ago and the quality is SO much better than the ones we have from pottery barn. Customization and shipping were so fast and Ruth is the sweetest to work with.

Love these [bibs]! They are big and cover a big surface area so kiddo doesn’t mess clothes too much. They are also very cute and well made.

Adorable and exactly as shown. Arrived quickly- my friends loved it!


I love these burp clothes and can't wait for our little girl to arrive to use them! They are adorable and different, it's so hard to find burp clothes in stores made of flannel and these were exactly what I had in mind! Mom of 4 and pretty picky about what I like for my babies 💜 I'm happy with this purchase


The BEST hooded toddler/children’s towel!
