About Us

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

To provide a quality children’s clothing line that all families may enjoy for those living and visiting the Florida Keys.

KEY WEST BABY WAS BORN:

A mom’s idea.  Created by a mother who just didn’t have the time, energy, or ability to shop with three babies by her side.

The need for convenience, and quality of merchandise led Yvonnie, owner and mother, to discover there wasn’t this one special place that everyone bought their Local/Key West children gear. We hope Key West Baby will be that special place.

As a mother of three little ones (ages 1, 2, and 4) I know that quality, fun, clothing for children in the Keys is limited.  Original organic children’s wear even more so.

Our three young children inspired the need for organic apparel in the Keys and we strive to provide, and produce the best quality organic apparel to clothe the precious babies in your life.

The Key West Baby Organic Collection provides original souvenir clothing for children living in the Keys, and visiting the Keys.

As Key West parents, we felt local families needed Key West signature apparel choices for their babies and toddlers.  Millions of families with children visit Key West, and they want signature gifts for their babies.

Baby wear from a favorite Key West bar, or restaurant does not appeal to everyone.  Key West Baby can offer families with children a needed local Keys clothing wear choice.

Key West Baby provides organic, quality, fun clothing for all babies.  Local mothers, and visiting mothers have something exceptional to put on their babies that represents our beautiful islands when worn.

When our children wear their Key West Baby clothing they laugh, and giggle at the fun images of Baby Turtle, Baby Shark and Baby Bug.   “Running” Baby (also known as Sport Baby), our newest creation, has been known to get a child’s imagination running.

Design and development concepts started in early 2009.  In May of 2010 Key Key West Baby launched at its first promotion.

TESTIMONIES:

One out-of-town-mother and former Keys resident said, “Kyle’s grandma got this shirt as a gift for him and it is so cute!  Not only is it organic, but it’s a great representation of Key West without being another generic souvenir!  Thanks Key West Baby for making something unique and comfy for my baby to wear!”

One Keys grandmother said, “When I discovered the adorable organic shirts and onesies at www.organickwbaby.com , I immediately had the answer for baby and shower gifts.  Besides my grandson, I’ve now gotten them for several other Key West babies.  As far as I’m concerned, this is the ‘best kept secret’ in Key West and it shouldn’t be.  From now on, I don’t even have to think about a gift.  This secret is out of the bag and I’m delighted to know about it.”

The Key West Baby collection promotes the fun, light, joyfulness, and beauty of the Keys.  The Key West BAby creatures, baby turtle, baby shark, and baby bug are the first in a series of the Key West Baby collection.
