We are thrilled to introduce you to our handmade one-of-a-kind limited release Etsy shop, A Little Riot. Soft and high-quality handmade vintage hairbows made from repurposed handkerchiefs. Perfect for girls of all ages and all occasions.
A little over 3 years ago, I grabbed one of my cutest vintage handkerchiefs, folded it up, slid it into a headband and popped it on my 1 year old daughter. It made the cutest bow ever! I was absolutely in love with the colors, design, flounce! I embarked on a journey then to create a line of adorable handmade vintage hairbows.
That’s right, its been over 3 years since I first dreamed up A Little Riot, the baby goods store that would house these unique handmade vintage hairbows! And I’m just now getting around to opening it’s doors! I’m disappointed by how long it’s taken me to bring these handmade vintage hairbows to the world. But, honestly, I feel like the last couple years were just out of my hands! I did my best and that’s what matters. And, now, it’s time to introduce you to A Little Riot! *Confetti blasts everywhere!*/
One of the reasons it took me so long to finally bring these handmade vintage hairbows to the world was that we have lots of ideas and goals for this new baby store! We dreamed up branding and colors and logos quite some time ago! And, as with any big idea, it’s really hard to tone it back down and just accept that starting somewhere is better than not starting at all. So that’s what we’ve finally done! While we have many more products planned, and even many completed, I finally accepted that I just need to START. So we’re starting small. With our favorite product of them all, these handmade vintage hairbows!
I honestly enjoyed every moment of creating these bows. They were all carefully chosen, cleaned, ironed, and then folded into the perfect dimensions for displaying each of their unique characteristics. Isn’t there just something so lovely and magical about vintage handkerchiefs!? The patterns and designs are just so vibrant, unique, colorful! It’s in ode to these fantastic vintage designs that we created the Hankie Hairbow.
These handmade vintage hairbows are so versatile, able to easily match casual summer dresses, but also go flawlessly with sunday best, holiday gowns, and other vintage clothes. Each is totally unique, one-of-a-kind, and ready to make your little’s shine.
These bows will be released in batches, with only 20-30 bows per release and each will never be released again. Some feature delicate crochet edging, some have have soft, pastel colors and embroidered flowers, while some feature the best bold vintage floral patterns. There’s a bow for all occasions and all littles! Tom boys, girly girls, and everything in between.
Our bows come with a variety of bases to choose from, like white lace elastic, gold glitter elastic, and classic nude and come in sizes infant-adult. Or each bow can be attached to a simple alligator clip instead and fit everyone! Plus, we offer free shipping across the United States on all our bows. So even though each handmade vintage hairbow is one-of-a-kind, there are plenty of options for customization.
We’re excited about our new Etsy shop A Little Riot and hope you’ll head there to give us some input! Let us know what you like, what you’d like to see changed, and which bow is your favorite! And here’s a picture of that first Hankie Hairbow I mentioned, on my little 1 year old! Man, I LOVE this photoshoot still!
