After Kelly’s son was born, she struggled to find any socks or shoes that would fit or stay on his rolly polly baby feet. Feeling frustrated and determined to find a solution, Kelly began sewing her own little booties. After lots of different designs and alterations, she finally came up with a bootie that was wide enough for her little boy’s feet, that would actually stay on, that were comfortable, and that he actually loved to wear!
Soon friends began requesting pairs for their children. So in 2014, Kelly launched Cabooties on Etsy. The ‘CAB’ is actually her son’s initials.
Kelly’s husband works for Hershey. His role has given them the opportunity to travel and move to many different states. Having Cabooties has been a fun constant that Kelly continues to grow through all of their moves and adventures.
Now the company has grown and is featured on several websites, and in 42 retail stores! But even with their tremendous growth, all of their shoes are still made by hand and in the USA by Kelly and some professional seamstresses that she has met along the way.
Be sure to stop by the Cabooties booth at Lancaster’s 2nd Baby Shower in order to take advantage of a special sale that Kelly will be running, and enter for your chance to win their raffle – a Cabooties tote bag with an Aden and Anais swaddle set, an EZPZ mini mat, Replay silverware, a Burts Bees baby bath set, and a pair of Cabooties!
