About this project

Sophie & Lili was established in 2004 as a little girls clothing company. In 2007, I took the company in a different direction by creating soft cotton dolls to keep things more manageable (growing family!). Since our launch in '07, I have sewn over 1400 dolls! So much for manageable. :) I am a full-time Art Director & this is a part-time venture that I have an extreme passion for. I have worked countless hours after work and weekends on this. As much as I love making these dolls, the hands-on part of the business is keeping me from growing & managing my business.

Recently, I got an order request from a MAJOR NATIONAL department store chain. This would be such a great opportunity to take my business from handmade to the real deal! BUT...I am afraid to commit without the proper funding, factory line-up, insurance & most important, costly CPSIA (safety/lead testing).

I have 6 dolls designed to launch & am working with a US factory.

Funding would help: Sample dolls at a US manufacturer Properly test dolls to meet the CPSIA requirements (lead, flammability, small parts, etc) Liability Insurance Cost of materials - fabric printing, etc Finally, doll production for this large order!
