R+E is a family affair.
R+E stands for Riley and Ethan, the two children of founders John and Angeli. They partnered up with close friends, Pamela and Rika, to collaborate and grow a business with a shared vision.
Our vision is to create traditional children's clothing with elegant craftsmanship that makes you smile and raises a sense of nostalgia. Having worn hand-smocked clothing that was specially selected or custom-made by our grandmothers and mothers inspired us to share that same experience with the next generation.
R+E was dreamed to existence to curate and prioritize the traditional technique of smocking in children's clothing. These handmade pieces can hold on its own through generations without becoming old-fashioned and remain a timeless classic.
Smocking is an art used to create design, eye-catching texture and flexibility in fabric. At R+E, we personally select the clothes and accessories, which are made out of the best materials. We are well on our way to becoming your go-to providers for luxurious and iconic smocked dressing. We want our hand-stitched pieces with whimsical softness to be a part of you and your growing family's celebrations.
