Liz and Roo, the designer and manufacturer of premium made in USA baby bedding, has formed a custom sewing partnership with Snap Dolls in Liberty, Kentucky. As part of this new association, the sewing team at Snap Dolls will be responsible for custom sewing for American Made Dorm & Home and its baby bedding division, Liz and Roo.
“This is a fabulous opportunity to partner with local sewing artisans and a niche that we have been trying to fill,” said Caroline Eager, Owner of Liz and Roo.
Liz and Roo manufactures modern, sophisticated, baby bedding sets and separates at its mill in Sylva, North Carolina. Production there specializes in fulfilling the brand’s line of bumper-free bedding sets and separates. In the search for a custom provider to oversee production of custom baby and home bedding from retail customers and stores, Caroline sought a local cut and sew team with high-end product experience. Discovering Snap Doll’s custom sewing team in Kentucky was an ideal match in proximity to the brand’s Louisville headquarters and an opportunity to add jobs to the region. In particular, Liberty, Kentucky is a town that has been hit particularly hard by the loss of textile jobs to overseas manufacturing over the past ten years.
“Liberty, Kentucky is rich with sewing talent,” stated Caroline Eager, “and because we focus heavily on local manufacturing, this partnership is a perfect fit. There is a genuine satisfaction in finding a superb work force in your own backyard.” All American Made Dorm & Home and Liz and Roo products are manufactured in the USA.
In addition to custom retail orders, the sewing artisans in Liberty, Kentucky will produce all of Liz and Roo’s popular “Little Roo” blankets. These security blankets are each made by hand and feature the brand’s signature satin kangaroo logo patch.
