Laurenceleste was formed by two friends, Lauren Murphy and Celeste Bayer. Born from this simple question in 1994, “Hey Lauren, do you know how to sew?” the company found it’s humble beginnings in a small San Francisco apartment.

It turned out that both Lauren and Celeste could sew very well.  They began with a small retail catalog that showcased their designs sold at Bay Area street fairs and farmer’s markets.  With a move to Chicago, Laurenceleste began their wholesale offering. Designing and manufacturing seasonal collections for infants and toddlers, Laurenceleste became available in over 200 boutiques across the US, England, and Japan.  From the beginning, the company focused on organic cotton for first layers and separates, with ecospun fleece for outerwear and blankets.

In 1996, they made a blanket for a friend’s nephew, with the little boy’s name and a plush teddy bear hand sewn to the polar fleece.  The “Kirby” blanket was added to the catalog and featured on the web site.  What began as a special request from a friend has become a favorite gift to give. Many years later, each blanket is still stitched by Lauren and Celeste with their own love of the craft and good thoughts for each baby (after all, they know the little one by name!).  A perfect and snuggly start for little Michael or Sophia.
