5 Years of Billy Bibs
I can’t believe it has been five years since we started Billy Bibs! Five years ago I was driving in the car with my husband, telling him about this idea I had. It was to be a completely unique product, something that would accentuate an outfit instead of covering it up, blending in to make it look like it is a regular part of the top of a dress or romper. The next weeks were spent cutting out shapes and creating patterns, sewing, measuring, making adjustments until I created the perfect size and shape.
I was so excited to create a brand new Instagram account, marketing my brand new business and I was met with an overwhelming amount of excitement from other mamas that loved my idea! After a few weeks, we introduced boy bibs, hair bows, pacifier clips and collars. Each product was carefully planned and always made with integrity. Each product pattern was made completely from scratch, it is very important for all of our products to be original in order to stand out from other baby brands. This means every bow, bib, pacifier clip started with many failed prototypes until we got to a finished product that was up to our standards!
Our current team consists of 8 people, most of them are local seamstresses that love making little baby things! Ethical practices are very important to us and we take pride in being able to hand make all of our current product locally in the USA. We hope that you can see the love that is put into making each piece.
One of the biggest requests that we have is to make our products more affordable and that has been so hard to do while maintaining the handmade quality that we are know for. I was thinking about what the next 5 years would look like for Billy Bibs. I do want our brand to grow and to be affordable for all parents so I am making plans to introduce a more basic line. Our new line will be manufactured while still maintaining the best ethical standards and I cannot wait to show you what we have in the works!
We want to say thank you to all of the wonderful people who we met in the past 5 years. We are so grateful for every order, every follow, like and comment.
Looking forward to the next 5 years!
