The evolution of the brand.
"Hand-crafted, heirloom bows made with love to embolden your little one's WUNDERment and join them on the great adventure of becoming exactly who they are meant to be."
When I had my first daughter Adeline, I wanted to dress her in classic clothes that would serve as a blank slate for her individuality. Thus, Free Babes Handmade was born!
As the brand (and my experience of motherhood) evolved, adventure, courage and whimsy became our core values. In February of 2017, we changed our name to Wunderkin Co., a blend of german "wunderkind" [meaning a person who achieves greatness at a young age] and "wunder" [wonder] + "kin" [family], to keep the spirit of wonder and self-expressed development of confident children at the core of our brand.
Because these bows are meant to be partners in adventuring, we knew we had to guarantee them for life. Life happens, especially when playing outdoors, and if you ever feel your bow isn't holding up to your standard, a simple email to firstname.lastname@example.org will get you a replacement or instructions to send it back for a thoughtful repair.
Wunderkin Co. bows are made from high quality Liberty of London prints and other cotton fabrics that compliment the colors found in nature all around us and are the perfect accessory to everyday adventure.
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.” - Howard Thurman
This quote inspired me in my parenting and at Wunderkin Co. I’m passionate about raising confident, curious and independent daughters, and I hope these bows can play a part in your little one’s childhood memories. [and if they want to wear sparkles and tutus, of course we can let them do that too!]
It’s my dream to see Wunderkin bows on your little free spirits around the globe. Thanks for supporting this small business of mine.
