Robbie and Kate's Profile

About

Hi there! And welcome to our shop -- bam’bino amore [bam-bee-noh, amo-re]!!

We know, kind of a crazy name :) What does it mean? Well, it literally translates to "baby love", but, we like to say it is:

the Italian term used to identify THE premiere HANDcrafted apron-making duo who create vintage-inspired, retro-looking kitchen {and hostess} aprons and accessories for the modern woman, one at a time. :)

It's actually a part of mom's (Robbie's) Italian maiden name, D'Amore. Here at BambinoAmore, we like to intertwine our family, our history, and a piece of us with everything we do and create.

A little more about us:

Mom (Robbie) and I (Kate -- the daughter) formally launched in 2008. We get along so well that you would never guess we are mother and daughter! ;)

We started this Etsy shop because wanted to share our love of fashion found in eras gone by {think Hollywood chic as exemplified by Audrey & Katherine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, and Rita Hayworth}. This meant not just “reproducing” items, but, capturing the sense of the era itself for the modern woman. Just a side note here....mom actually named me after Katherine Hepburn :)

So, we put pencil to paper and began sketching. Patterns were altered, tweaked, and re-altered – all to make sure that the figure of each woman would be flattered while wearing a Bambino Amore apron.

The end result was a full line of “vintage-inspired,” retro looking aprons that empower women of all ages, shapes, and sizes – aprons that make a woman feel confident & beautiful while performing the most mundane tasks around the house AND simply spectacular while hosting parties. Their aprons are SPECIFICALLY designed to salute & celebrate the modern woman by drawing inspiration from the past.

In our line-up are the following aprons:

• The Jessie Full Apron {features a sweetheart neckline & circle skirt}
• The Eloise Full Apron {features a straight neckline & circle skirt}
• The Jennie Full Apron {features a straight neckline & gathered skirt}
• The Sarah Full Apron {features a sweetheart neckline, circle skirt, and over the neck loop}
• The Pin-Up Aprons {features a sweetheart neckline, circle skirt, and pure pin-up style}
• The Double Skirt Full Apron {features a sweetheart neckline & two circle skirts}
• The Lola Half Apron {EACH one is a ONE-OF-A-KIND apron – features a large pocket & ruffle}
• Kids Full Apron {features a sweetheart neckline & circle skirt}
• Half Aprons {a circle skirt half apron & a gathered skirt half apron}

Bambino Amore items are designed, developed, and HANDmade in the United States of America. We take great pride in being American based, American made, and even though we may feel like they are in a sweatshop from time to time {due to the Texas heat}, sweatshop free.

Fabrics are purchased locally as well as through other Etsy shops.

Bambino Amore welcomes custom orders and wholesale inquiries – just shoot out a convo.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little more about us. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
