About

There are no llamas in Africa!

When I stumbled upon Etsy many years ago, I was in handmade heaven! I had always wanted to open up my own shop, but my constant travel didn't give me enough stability to do so. I finally settled down and just before my daughter was born I opened up my store with the anticipation of the end of my paychecks and New York rent to pay.

I started creating custom applique baby onesies and kept coming up with new designs of what I wanted to dress my own daughter in and she became my biggest inspiration.

When we were married my husband and I joked around that our kids would be "African Llamas" (I'm South African and he is Peruvian) and since my daughter is my #1 inspiration, I named my shop after her.
