Hi, my name is Peri. I am an artist, turned midwife, turned mom, turned noni bee founder. When my daughter was born, I wanted her to have original, comfortable clothing that had personality while not being too girly or fussy. I was frustrated by the available options, so I learned to sew and made most of her clothing myself. I fell in love with the process and drew upon my fine arts background as I created pieces for her that we both loved and felt good about. I always want the clothing I give to my daughter – whether it be sewn by me or purchased – to be high quality and ethically made, and I want it to fit for more than one season. I created noni bee with these same ideals in mind– long-lasting, natural, sustainable clothing with personality.
 
The name noni bee comes from my daughter’s nickname. Noni was the first thing she called herself when she began talking. Taking her lead, my husband and I started calling her Noni, which somehow turned into Noni Baloney. We eventually shortened it to noni bee, and it stuck. I hope noni bee fits your little ones too.
