How We Got Started and About Us
Hi, my name is Monica and I am the founder and designer of all items Bows and Bros Boutique! In January of 2018, I found out I was pregnant with my first baby! Being an over ecstatic new mom, I was eager to start buying cute clothing for my baby and had so many ideas in mind for my little one’s coming home outfit. With some previous graphic design background experience, I decided that I wanted something unique and custom for my baby and started designing fabric that I could have custom printed and use to make my little one’s first outfit. I didn’t know the gender yet, so I made designs for both. I then had to create the outfit patterns for making the outfits and the bodysuit designs for each outfit as well. I worked diligently throughout my pregnancy to pass the time until I could meet my little baby.
My sweet perfect baby girl was born in October 2018, and by this time I had so many different designs to choose from. At the time, I had about 4 years of customer service experience as well as some background in working with vinyl products and shirt making. After receiving several compliments from friends and family, and even strangers out and about in town on her outfits, I decided to try my hand at selling my handmade items on Etsy. This also became a hobby that I truly enjoyed and was proud of. I officially opened my shop on Etsy in December of 2018 and kept designing and adding more and more products to my shop. My shop took off and was more successful than I could have ever dreamed of within just 6 months of opening shop on Etsy and I received countless 5-star reviews on my outfits!
Although Etsy is a great place to sell handmade items and is a great way for small businesses to get a start, I decided that with my success, Bows and Bros Boutique LLC needed its own place to sell our handmade items. It was time for us to create our own website. Our website officially launched in August of 2019. As of March 15th, 2020 we decided to close our Etsy shop and all items will be exclusive to this website.
Running a small business myself, I am a big believer in supporting small businesses and artists to help them achieve their goals. Since designing my fabric prints, I have also included fabric designs by other graphic designers and unique artists to expand the available outfit options we have available in our shop. The fabric is still custom printed just for us by the same company, bodysuit designs are still designed by us, and all outfit sets are still handmade and made custom to order by us. We don’t outsource anything. If you would like to know which fabrics are designed by me and are exclusive to our store, feel free to contact us via email or chat.
Being that we are still a somewhat new company, we rely on your feedback on ways we can improve and make your experience better. Please help us out by contacting us with your feedback, leaving reviews on your products so others can see your happy experience, sharing with your friends and taking part in our referral and rewards programs. I truly could not have made it this far without my amazing customers and the moms and dads who purchase outfits for their perfect little ones. Thank you to everyone who shops small and supports growing businesses like mine, so we can achieve our dreams and goals. When you buy from shops like mine, you are not only helping us grow to be successful, but you are helping to put food on our table, pay our bills, send our kids to college and so much more! I am forever grateful to all of you! Even those who don’t buy but take the time to browse our website or share our items on social media, I am grateful to all of you!
