Named after my kitties, Bella and Zoe (aka "The Grey One"), I founded Bella Grey Vintage in December of 2013 with a love for vintage-style home decor.
Our baby line launched in 2016, shortly after the birth of my daughter.
I love creating, designing, and playing with textures: lace, burlap and cotton are some of my favorite things. I'm drawn to styles that combine both masculine and feminine, like beautiful calligraphy with rustic burlap fabric. If you have an idea in mind but don't see it in store, please let me know. I love new design challenges!
I strive to keep my designs eco-friendly, using upcycled wood frames, all-natural milk paint and hemp oil on wood, and easily renewable fabrics like jute burlap and 100% cotton.
Our baby bodysuits are made of 100% organic cotton and are Fair Trade and GOTS Certified. Organic cotton has longer, softer and less brittle fibers which make luxurious and durable fabric. Our garments are colored with eco-friendly dyes and are wonderfully soft against baby's skin.
We use environmentally friendly packaging materials in an ongoing effort to support sustainability.
Handmade with Love
Frames, prints, and pillow covers are all designed and created in my Sun Prairie, Wisconsin studio.
Our baby bodysuits are sewn by Fair Trade certified manufacturers in India. Through Fair Trade, a portion of the proceeds of every purchase goes back to a worker controlled fund to serve the people who make our products. Our garments are also sweatshop free: they're only made by adults who are working by choice and treated well. Workers receive medical insurance for themselves, all members of their immediate family and their parents. Two hot meals are served daily and transportation is provided to and from the factories.
