Baby Wit | About Us
the baby wit story
babywit.com was founded by a stay-at-home mom with a sense of humor who refused to resign herself to dressing her daughter in bland T-shirts covered in bears or other equally uninteresting creatures.
babywit.com creates quirky, eclectic T-shirts that show the world your baby has serious style. We have the largest collection of comic infant and toddler T-shirts on the Internet. We were tired of seeing cute rainbows, hearts and bears on baby shirts. Especially bears. We hated bears. And so, in 2003, Rosalee started babywit.com, a company that designs baby T-shirts with an adult sensibility.
Our T-shirts are made by American Apparel. They cost us a little more, but they're made in a sweatshop-free environment and are of better quality than anything else we've tested. (Plus, both the black infant tees and raglan-sleeved toddler shirts are tragically hip.) We hand-press our T-shirts using retro iron-on transfers. (Those of us who lived through the 70's will remember the decal shops in the local shopping mall.)
Rosalee Rester launched an eco-friendly line of infant and toddler clothing that is made from sustainable fabrics and is hand printed using non-toxic water based inks. Everything is cut, sewn and printed right here in Portland, OR. Also, check out the new Yankers line...sustainable fabrics and no snaps or zippers!
