Our Story

Hello, I am Brittany - 

I love supporting small shops and restaurants and I love to talk to you about the things I find! When I was growing up my Mom owned a children's clothing boutique. It started with her dressing me up in outfit she created and as I grew up, it turned into going with her to markets and helping her run her store. It engraved the importance of community, shopping small and local in to me. 
Fast forward through design school and some great career experience, I met my husband and we had our son. As exciting as baby shopping was, I never felt like I could find clothes that represented our style. I realized that popular clothing companies were using chemicals & dyes that were harmful on babies skin and the factories that were producing these clothes were using child labor or unfair working conditions for employees. This is when I realized I wanted to make a change.

I was able to find suppliers that have standards in their warehouses and have fair working conditions that focus on ergonomics. I found suppliers that choose not to use harmful chemicals in their fabrics or production lines and most importantly - I found what I love. I can truly say I am humbled with the community support and the strength and drive my family has given me. Arlo.Hendrix is named after my son and reminds me every day why I do what I do.

Can I shop your store in person or only online?
