Like so many great baby brands, Kyte was born from a mom seeking a solution that did not exist on the market for her baby. Founder, Ying Liu, had a daughter with chronic eczema who was constantly ripping open her sleepers in the middle of the night to stay cool. After some research, Ying found that bamboo is 3 degrees cooler than cotton while also being hypoallergenic. She found her baby slept significantly better when dressed and swaddled in bamboo as opposed to traditional cotton. (Side bonus- bamboo is one of the most sustainable resources on earth- textile or otherwise!)
Ying is originally from China and has an aunt, Ling, who still lives there and owns a small garment factory. Ying partnered with her aunt to give her the business she needed to keep her operation running while providing customers with unique, high quality bamboo products that are truly family owned and operated all the way to sourcing!
