When Henry was a wee thing, his mother, Amy, was always disappointed with the selection of clothes available for boys. So she started making her own. Since she loved thrift store and digging for hidden goodies, it only made sense that she started making his clothes from these repurposed treasures. Now, several years later—with two wee lads at home—it’s grown into a little business.
Henry and Etta strives to make fun, playful kids wear for both boys and girls. Because sometimes girls like dinosaurs and boys like pink, they try to have a variety of options for all kids. Bright patterns adorn raglan dresses and tees for older kids, and sweet baby duds for the teeniest ones.
Reusing these gently worn clothes helps make their products eco-friendly. They strive to reduce waste by designing clothes and accessories that use up even the smallest pieces or fabric. Patchwork blankets and bibs are made from scraps and backed with organic cotton fleece, making them super sort and absorbent. Almost all of the non-usable scraps find another use filling pillows and cushions.
Most materials are 95% cotton with 5% Lycra, some are 100% cotton. They try to use organic cotton whenever possible.
Since these are all handmade, the selection and quantities may change over time. Visit their Etsy store to see all the wonderful clothes they have given a second life!
