Like many eager mothers to be, Lauren began perusing around for baby clothes soon after discovering she was expecting. She quickly found herself underwhelmed by the choices available to clothe her little one - being either super gender specific, brightly colored with cheesy designs, made of questionable materials, or organic but limited and wildly expensive. With a vision in her mind and minimal sewing experience, Lauren found herself purchasing a sewing machine to embark on the journey of creating all her own baby clothes. Seven months and a whole lot of trial and error later, she had a complete handmade wardrobe for her little one and the seed for Rooted Sprout was planted.
That seed was watered when she took her son out on the town and received endless compliments on his clothes and inquiries about where she had found them. Thus, Rooted Sprout emerged - to fill the hole that exists in the baby clothing market with stylish, comfortable, organic digs that you'll feel great about adorning your children with. All the items found in this shop are handmade with love on Vancouver Island by this hard working mamma. She sends out deep gratitude to all who help to support her work.
Lauren launched her new women's line, Rooted, in spring of 2020. After learning the ins and outs of sewing through Rooted Sprout, she yearned to make clothing for all the mamas out there - not just for their babes! The Rooted line is made from beautiful, natural and sustainable textiles and designed with movement in mind.
