Welcome to Wildwood Poppy soft sole, vegan, organic lined baby shoes! Home to organic lined shoes, the Knot Bow shoe, and now the Skinny Bow shoe. My mission is to provide your babes with nontoxic shoes that you can feel good about putting on their delicate feet.
My Story: I began making baby shoes in 2012 while pregnant with my youngest daughter. I was making more of an effort to avoid harmful chemicals in our everyday products and I had learned about how dyes from leather and vinyl can be absorbed through our children's skin. So I researched different materials to line the shoes with and found the perfect nontoxic/organic fabrics. My baby shoe business took off in 2014 and for personal reasons I closed it down in early 2016. With a love for creating and sewing I reopened in 2017 with a fresh perspective. Having over 25 years of sewing experience I personally sew each pair of shoes with a strong focus on details. Each style is made in limited quantities making them extra special now and a treasured heirloom for years to come.
The name Wildwood Poppy came about by combining my childhood in Minnesota and my life in California. I spent many childhood days roaming the woods by horse and on foot, camping under the stars and enjoying all that the country and wilderness had to offer. I now spend my days raising my children in sunny Southern California in a much different type of landscape. I love the ocean, palm trees, and the variety of flowers which of course include the poppies.
I hope you love and enjoy my baby shoes. If you ever have any questions or concerns please send me a message. Or if you just want to say Hi! I'd love to hear from you! Thanks for supporting my business and creative journey!
