In yesterday's blog post, we shared the lovely story of Anaira Creations and learned why they are so passionate about our mission of providing carriers to families who have children with special needs.
Today, as promised, we're sharing the story of Vaquero Wovens. We know you've been eye-ing these gorgeous woven wraps, they are absolutely stunning. Since we're passionate about bringing babywearing to new places, we are especially excited about their "budget line" as you will learn about here in their story.
At Vaquero Wovens, LLC our goal is to create beautiful, made in the USA, jacquard woven baby wraps. We are committed to keeping all of our manufacturing in the USA, and try our hardest to contract working mothers as our seamstresses. Our exclusive line of wraps are hand cut by myself and my aunt Susan, and sewn by a team of local seamstresses, including a few work at home moms! Vaquero is owned by my husband, Tupper, and I, and run by myself and my dear friend Jennedy Johnson. And of course, our children are our inspiration.
Babywearing has played so many roles in my life as a mother. It has allowed me to work from home, keep up with my house, offer my son sick cuddles when he is under the weather, comfort him when needs comforted, and most importantly to simply keep him close; the list goes on. I have become so passionate about babywearing that I wanted to find a way to share it with everyone. And so began Vaquero Wovens.
At Vaquero, our mission is to provide different lines of wraps that are able to meet the needs of many babywearers. Through my babywearing journey, I have fallen in love with easy to find readily available wraps; the gateway wraps for many new babywearers. Then, much to my husband’s dismay I began to also fall in love with the highly sought after market. The online releases that give you a rush just to “cart” a wrap. So, at Vaquero, we decided to offer a budget line of wraps with the quality and beauty of the high quality, highly sought after wraps at a budget price. We wanted these wraps to be available to everyone, so we decided to run a preorder for our budget line. We also offer an exclusive line of wraps in unique and beautiful designs, in very small quantities.
Vaquero aims to create jacquard woven wraps that are unique from other machine woven wraps on the market. We incorporate gradual color warps and a variety of interesting designs, with high quality fibers that allow most of our wraps to require little to no breaking in; creating wraps that are fashionable, yet functionable. We have a very close relationship with our mill, that extends even prior to our business partnership with them. This allows us to work closely with them to create truly unique wraps.
I have always been passionate about children with special needs, and the very special parents that care for them. That is why I have fallen so in love with the non-profit “Lift Me Up: Babywearing to Thrive” and all that they do. They put carriers in the hands of parents with special needs children, free of cost. What a blessing to both the children and their parents and caregivers. It is simply amazing. We are so excited to be able to help support “Lift Me Up."
