Milou & Pilou

It's always fun to see how mamas style our shoes on their little ones. And every once in a while, our shoes are paired with clothing so perfectly that we just have to learn more about the makers behind these pieces. That was the case with the adorable Spanish brand Milou and Pilou.

Factory Photo Series: Family

We're proud to be a small, family operated American manufacturer. Our little old factory is a very special place to us, and that's why we're excited to bring you the Factory Photo Series.

Our theme last week was Hands, and this week, fittingly for Thanksgiving, it's Family. We're so grateful to everyone involved with our shoes from the very beginning of the process to the end product to our customers and their sweet babes. From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving.


Old Family...

Factory Photo Series - Hands

Factory Photo Series - Hands

There's product, and then there's process. We think our finished product is pretty cute, and we love sharing it with our customers. But we're also really proud of our process. All of our shoes are ethically crafted in Pennsylvania at our family's historic 1888 factory. 


Our great-grandfather bought it in the 1960s, and it's been in our family since then. The factory is a really special place to us. It's not always pretty; there's tons of leather and metal dies and big machines, and it's old. There's nothing flashy or fancy about it. But we think that's what makes it special...

Our Holiday Shoot with MaeJean Vintage

There are a few things that Audrey and I are pretty into: 1. Vintage everything. 2. All things Christmas. 3. Shiny things i.e. jewelry. With this in mind, it makes sense why we were so excited about collaborating with our gorgeous friends Laura, Amanda, and Dahlia of MaeJean Vintage for a holiday shoot. Our picture perfect model is Dahlia's little girl Vienna, and she was an absolute CHARMER.
