About this project

Hi Kickstarter, Thanks for checking out Right Bank Babies! We are excited about our upcoming baby and children's collection and would love to have your support to make things happen. 


OUR STORY

I started Right Bank Babies back in 2006. I was inspired by not being able to find anything for my daughters to wear. So I pulled out my sewing machine and created 2 patterns for exactly what “I” wanted… 


I had two girls within 14 months. There was a lot going on but I loved clothes and dressing my girls. I was frustrated with the children’s clothes that were available - they consisted of designer sweat suits and mini-me ensembles. I wanted the beautiful and wearable clothing reminiscent of the outfits I remember loving as a child. So I did the unimaginable - I hauled out an old sewing machine and taught myself how to sew with a lot of help from my mom. I started going through old pictures of family and friends - looking up old styles online and piece by piece recreated the clothes I loved wearing as a child. These designs are “on trend” but not trendy - classics. And I made one really big improvement - I made them reversible. Babies and toddlers are messy – I had two babies and did not want to carry around a suitcase of spare wardrobe changes. 

Everywhere I went mothers stopped me and asked where they could buy the outfits - and they didn’t realize they were reversible until I showed them! I discovered I had tapped into a REAL need. I was boosted by all the overwhelmingly positive reactions. We struggled with financing - we leveraged what we had and borrowed money from family. We did not have Oprah launching the line but we had the power of Mom’s. Right Bank Babies clothes hit an emotional cord. The clothes not only enhance the child’s beauty but also show off their personality as well. We created joyful “in the moment” memories – little mental snapshots Mom’s will never forget. 

Even with the high praises and awards; however, it was tough surviving through the recession in the 2008-2012. We spent all of our money staying in the game and are unable to fund our next line of 2013 collections. We Need Your Support. The fabric and design are paid for, but we still need minimum of $30,000 to finish our production. This is where we need your support. In return, you will receive our unique blend of high quality items. All of the items that you will receive are 100% made-in-USA. 

We have made huge strides in recent weeks - we have an update to our retail website in the last stages of completion and we have signed on with a New York Distributor who handles other brand like Fendi, Gucci and Stella McCartney - we are honored to be their only US based brand and want to capitalize on these connections.

We just have this last hurdle to get through to really grow our brand. Thank you so much for helping this "momprenuer" make it big!

Risks and challenges

1.) Fabrics, trims, label, and production all needs to be prepaid or paid in full at completion. However, it usually takes us a few months before we start to sell and collect our funds.
2.) USA made products are high in cost and we have been selling almost at lost for years because of excess inventory and slow turn-over.
3.) There will always be time where a curtain style does not sell and we have to take the lost. And, for best sellers, certain sizes sold out when the other sizes stuck in the inventory for long duration of time.
