Meet The Maker


Black owned business, handmade kids clothes

 

I believe in clothes made with love. It’s not just a slogan, it’s who I am. I wanted to create The Wandering Child brand ever since I was a little girl staring up in fascination at a manual sewing machine. Watching the seamstress pushing the pedal up and down, over and over, and magically making a beautiful piece of clothing.
The clothes, I take pride in creating are made from patterns that are inventive, detailed, and joyful. They are comfortable and swaddle your little ones like a hug. The fabrics I hand select are designed for little girls to see their beautiful diversity reflected back at them. The wishes we all have for our children - that they are happy, comfortable, warm, caring, unique, expressive, and natural - are all qualities reflected in the WCC clothes.
As a mom of 3 children, I know how important clothes are. They need to withstand 100 trips down the playground slide and running through the sand. They need to be colorful and cute so that your favorite romper is also their favorite thing to wear. And they need to be ethically made because values are so important to pass on. The clothes I create are made with love so that children who wear them can grow into confident, happy, and joyful individuals.
The clothes you buy also help to express love. Each piece of clothing results in 12 meals for an orphaned child living in Kenya, Africa. I am so humbled that with your help, we’ve provided more than 1000 meals so far.
"Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” ~James 1:27
