Baby Leo Designs was born in 2005, when our three boys were still cuddling their favorite homemade blankies. Their blankies were so popular in the playground that we started offering them wholesale to baby boutiques.
A few years later as my crew of three outgrew their blankies, I watched in bewilderment as their blankies morphed into capes around their necks. In the boundaries of my living room walls, I witnessed imaginations soaring with daring rescues. Even the youngest one summoned courage as a caped crusader. It was magical! It then became apparent that in every child layed an abundance of strength, courage and adventure... and we needed to add superhero capes to the Baby Leo Designs collection.
In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic created a national shortage of personal protective equipment, including face masks. This unprecedented crisis prompted our small team of artisans to repurpose our production from baby blankets to face masks. To date, Baby Leo Designs has donated over 2000 face masks to essential workers in sanitation, food banks, nursing homes, homeless shelters, and the AIDS foundation.
Baby Leo Designs products are proudly handcrafted in San Francisco, from cut to finish. Every stitch and detail is a true labor of love, reflecting the unique beauty and quality that can never come from an assembly line.
