Hankie Babies is a unique and one-of-a-kind baby and girls' clothing line made from vintage and antique linens. Most fabrics are old kitchen linens, hankies and doilies, but anything may be used from old hotel hand towels to mens' ties to interesting potholders. No two pieces are exactly alike and are always a fun conversation piece.
Hankie Babies began in 2005, after owner, Daria Woolard, had amassed quite a few vintage linens. One day it came to her that a hankie would look cute as a part of a onesie. She gave it to her friend's baby. After that she began selling individual pieces out of onesies and t-shirts at a local shop. Over the years, it has grown steadily and has garnered a following. Hankie Babies is represented by the wholesale showroom, Southern Fried Chicks, and is currently carried in many fine specialty baby and gift shops throughout the United States. In 2011, Hankie Babies expanded to include a studio workshop and handcrafted children's boutique where the pieces are made individually in Studio City, CA.
Hankie Babies clothing is sold in the shop with other unique hand made children's creations that Daria discovers from other crafters and artists who love creating pieces as much as Daria does. Hankie Babies has grown a lot, but Daria strives to keep it special by still making each piece herself.
