Mod Union Hand Crafted Apparel & Accessories

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    If you are looking for one of a kind items, Mod Union carries my unique clothing samples used in photoshoots, hand-painted upcycled clothing and my art printed on cards and stickers.

My main focus is one piece loungewear.
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.

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 Urban Style Comfortable and Cozy One Piece Long Underwear.

In my Etsy store I sell the most samples of my comfy dresses, pants and more made from fabrics I love.

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.

Returns and exchange details
Many of my items are from past seasons. Anything that I don't have to make when you order is returnable for a full refund minus the shipping costs both ways.

If you received free shipping then the cost of the shipping to you will be subtracted from your refund.

If you decide to exchange the item then this cost will not be deducted from your credit.

Any item Made To Order is only available for an exchange. This is because I have very little bandwidth and the time I take to make your items takes me away from other orders.

Thank you for understanding!
Payment
Pay me with money or credit.
Shipping
All samples I ship in 1 to 3 business days. I can ship overnight if you email or call me. All clothing items are sewn out in my sewing studio and take around two weeks to complete. If you need it faster just email me a request and I'll see what I can do to make that happen.
