Announcement    Mod Union: No Fasteners To Undo When You Use The Loo.

Wearing a one piece union suit doesn't mean you have to remove your jacket, strip down your top and sit shivering on top of a toilet just to go pee.

By design my Modern Union Suit is the ideal base layer for any situation, whether it's wandering off into the deep wilderness or hibernating in your cave during the winter. I sew them out with sustainably sourced fabrics including bamboo (using closed loop processing), organic cotton, modal, soy and hemp.

About Mod Union™:
I developed the Mod Union™ in 2007 for my infant son because I was tired of all the endless snaps, buttons and zippers. I created a romper for babies to make it easier for caregivers to check and change diapers.

Back then it was known as a Yanker® or a Yank-N-Go. Unfortunately I let our trademark lapse (oopsy daisy) and it was taken over by Crank Yankers® for their t-shirt line. I didn't fight too hard for it because it seemed a more appropriate name for puppets making crank calls. 

In 2020 I designed a Modern Union Suit for women. My Mod Unions™ can be worn alone as a one piece but the functionality of Mod Unions™ shine most when you are bundled up in a few layers and have to pee. 
I am currently designing one for men.

About ModernUnionsuit

On Etsy since 2013

How It All Started

Out of desperation (the dot com industry in SF had just crashed and I was about to have a baby) I started printing silly sayings and artist's work (Kieron Dwyer, Tina Robbins, Steven Weissman) on baby clothes. I launched babywit.com in 2003 focusing on getting other artist's work on baby clothing. I eventually started making my own art and people seemed to like the designs I did so I created an Etsy shop with my favorite drawings, mashups and artists.

I never saw myself making baby clothes but with the birth of my second child in 2007 ended up designing my own all in one baby romper with a unique panel in the back that makes them much more functional and gentle on baby that I named the Mod Union.

My obsession with comfort and functionality carried over into my new line of Women's Union Suits. I am almost finished with the Men's version!

I also love making art. Using thread and paint I embellish used clothing on my website www.r3g3n3r8.com.

I make everything in my Portland sewing studio.

Hi, I make unique baby and women's knitwear clothing. I make things as close to home as possible. All my pieces of clothing are sewn out here in Portland or upcycled. Everything is made and sourced in the USA or upcycled. I also recycle a lot of my packaging using biodegradable bags and paper bands (instead of ziplock bags) to hold my shirts in place during shipping.
