It all began in 2008 after my husband returned from Afghanistan.
After eight years in outside sales for a large retail chain, I retired as a stay-at-home mom completely content with raising two children while my husband was abroad. I have been sewing since my teens, dipping my fingers in tailoring, and heirloom sewing. It did not take long before ETSY and I became a team, and I started my business Kinder Kouture. I never thought that in the last 10 years, Kinder Kouture would become a recognized brand name for handmade children's clothing.
I grew up with a very creative german mother, who could do everything with the touch of her hands. I learned at an early age to appreciate the fact that my mom could make dreams come true. I appreciated her time, her thoughtfulness, and most of all the uniqueness in everything she did for me and my sister.
Just like my mom, I love all things handmade. Combining creative details and patterns with gorgeous floral cotton prints speaks to my unique style.
Timeless, beautiful and sweet.
We hope everyone loves their Kinder Kouture creation, as much as we enjoyed making it for you. Thank you for supporting our small family owned business. Please stay safe and happy.
Our pieces are always designed with a lot of carefully thought out details. The patterns are classic and timeless, and can be worn throughout most of the year. Our cotton fabrics are all made in the USA, as are each one of the Kinder Kouture dresses.
Made by hand, with lots of love.
Our goal has always been to create timeless pieces that strike a balance between comfort and style. Fun, colorful, and yet playful. Each dress will hopefully find a smile on your child's face.
Natural fibers are crucial when you’re making items for kids, because children need to be comfortable and they also deserve the very best in terms of quality. All items made in our shop are 100% natural - usually cotton or linen, and are made in small quantities.
More and more people are shopping locally for handmade goods and supporting their local community. I am happy that I found a way to do what I love each and every day, and at the same time, provide a wonderful gift to my customers.
I feel incredibly blessed to have gained so many friends over the years who appreciate the hard work, the small-scale production and timeless trends we create at Kinder Kouture.
Hope you and your family fall in love with your new Kinder Kouture Dress.
As long as I can remember, I have always been drawn to simplicity, beautiful designs and creating things. My collections always draw inspiration from this, and the natural beauty in this world. I come from a creative background; sewing, knitting, crocheting were always just a hobby. Once I knew that this is what I was passionate about, I realized that this is what I wanted to share it with the world. After several years of hard work, my dream became a reality and I was able to finally put myself and vision out there. My pieces are meant to be unique and timeless, something that you'll never want to take off and that you can pass down through generations.
