Vendor Profile: MadeByKate Design

by Natalie Nagengast September 30, 2015

Business Name: MadeByKate Design
Products: Baby crib mobiles, baby wood cubes and hand stamped baby/kids clothing
Founding Year: 2012 as my son was born

What makes us company unique: MadeByKate Design was created on my own quest for that very special crib mobile when I was pregnant. After a very long search for a perfect mobile for my son's room I decided to just make the one I wanted. Subsequently it just spread, my friend wanted one, then local mommy groups said they like it and wanted it too, then someone said I should sell it on Etsy. After that I have not stopped making mobiles, in fact, as my son grows I start making things that were more appropriate for his age. He really liked cubes so I made some to match his room décor. From there it went on to clothing as he started stamping his shirts with paint one day! I am not sure what else he will get me into but so far I am pleased with all of my endeavors.  It is all ruled by my little guy.

What I love most about my company: They say kids will change your life in many ways, but my son has changed mine in a greater way than I could have ever imagined. I love that this creative side of me was born when my son was born. He gave me freedom, happiness and fulfillment. I love making and creating. I love coming up with new ideas and new product.

Our Process: Everything is handmade in USA with Eco Friendly material. It is non toxic, 100% recyclable and made with love of a mother in a home studio. At MadeByKate Design we always grow, as my son grows. We don’t stay in one spot, we try different things we evolve and we move.  We progress with every new design, product line and idea.  And I know we will never stop.
