about us
Welcome to Appalachian Baby.

We offer a unique American approach to contemporary knitwear and design. Our sweaters and gifts are handmade by a community of Appalachian artisans against a backdrop of extraordinary natural beauty.

Our Appalachian communities give our children a rich sense of place and family, and those values are imbued in everything we offer: gifts of quality and caring, intended to be passed on and cherished for generations to come.

Recently we've begun packaging our designs into kits for the hand and machine knitter to create their own Appalachian Baby design. We've included yarn, detailed instructions, handpainted buttons and other handmade trims that make our sweaters unique and memorable baby gifts.

So if you need a very special baby gift or want to make one, this is the place for you. We welcome you with open arms!
