⚘BEHIND THE BRAND⚘
For as long as I can remember I've had a love of all things tiny and working with my hands to create. In 2010 I decided to leave my teaching career to dedicate more time to my growing daughters and caring for my family. This decision also afforded me the opportunity to follow my long-time dream of starting my own small business: designing and creating wares for little people. I decided to call my endeavor 'avenue of peace' and
I truly love what I get to do each and every day.
The name of my business was inspired by a family trip to Paris, France where I was introduced to RUE DE LA PAIX—the avenue of peace. While the street is a fashionable shopping area in the center of Paris—full of couture shops and lovely boutiques—it's the words that captured my heart in a special way. It made me think, “shouldn’t we all try to walk the avenue of peace in our hearts and minds as we navigate our way on life's beautiful journey?” We instill this question into our vision every day. 🤍
Our products are made with high quality fabrics that are amazingly soft, comfy & cozy. They insulate in both hot and cold temperatures to keep little ones always cradled in comfort. The hand detailed work makes each piece beautifully unique and genuinely one of a kind. Everything in our collection is handmade in Pennsylvania, by me and a small team of incredibly talented women I've had the good fortune of working with for the past ten years. They too love what they get to do each day and are true creatives at heart. Several of these women are mothers to young children and work from home so they can make caring for their families their number one priority.
May the tiny souls that fill these wares always travel the avenue of peace in their hearts and experience much love, joy and happiness on their beautiful life journey.
In peace & love, from my heart to yours--
