Colorful, whimsical, versatile. These are the trademarks of Zutano, the family-owned baby and toddler clothing design company. Michael and Uli Belenky started creating clothes for their baby daughter over 20 years ago out of their small NYC brownstone. When the business outgrew their living quarters, they relocated to Vermont. Inspired by the fresh air, wide spaces, and joy their children exuberated, the Belenkys lovingly grew their line of children’s clothing and accessories using high-quality fabrics sourced from the softest cotton.

Through Momtrends, Zutano showcased its vivid new product line at its quaint showroom event in New York City last week to a group of lifestyle and parenting editors and bloggers. As an attendee, I was impressed by the fanciful and colorful unique prints. All of their clothes are designed to be mixed and matched, a convenience parents will surely appreciate. The Zutano line extends into accessories and nursery d├ęcor as well.

Mix and match for no-mistake outfits.

As a treat, the event pampered participants with nail treatment by Nail Taxi, a unique mobile nail boutique. Nail Taxi used non-toxic kid-safe nail polish by Hopscotch Kids. Attendees also sipped on red and white wines brought in mompreneur, Cheryl Murphy, founder of Mommy Juice Wines.

Beyond the product line, I loved the Zutano philosophies instilled into its everyday practices. From the beginning Michael and Uli Belenky treated their employees as family, cooking for them out of their house everyday until the group expanded beyond 15. Employees were allowed to bring their babies to work during the infant’s first year of life, and even pets were welcomed. The company also encouraged employees to plant seasonal vegetables in the community garden on the premises.

  7. @Maureen | Tatter Scoops Maureen - they have toddler clothes, too, up to I believe 5 years old, but since you're in Indonesia the shipping charges will be quite high. :(

  8. I love Zutano, especially the cute booties. Unfortunately, my son's feet grew too wide for them quickly.
