Our Inspiration. A Child’s Imagination.
We like to think of Milkbarn as a one-word poem. Our essence, our playfulness, our imagination, our creativity, and our love all rolled into a name. We’re nostalgic, yet modern; country, yet urban; rustic and yet clean, cool and timeless.
In our world, lions, Goldendoodles, and bunnies roam freely. In our world, orange giraffes graze the redwood forests while Blue Jays and Whippoorwills serenade the Pacific Ocean. In our world, artichokes giggle as ladybugs and bucking broncos settle gently on our fingertips. In our world, the world of Milkbarn, we believe in our children’s imagination. Our children’s wonder, innocence, and imagination inspire all we create.
Our History. A Leap of Faith.
“We love seeing the world through a child’s eyes. We love their imaginations, their senses, and their wonder – running, romping, daydreaming, gazing at the clouds. That’s what Milkbarn is all about.” – Stacy Phillips, Founder
Our roots are in dairy country, the rolling hills north of San Francisco. In 2006 Stacy Phillips founded Milkbarn. What started as Stacy working and designing at her kitchen table has grown into a business that distributes treasured goods worldwide. A lot has changed since Stacy began sewing bibs for her seven-month-old son. What hasn’t changed, though, is our commitment to our customers and our dedication to making the highest quality products. Stacy draws inspiration from her husband, three children, family, and friends. She resides in Franklin, Tennessee, and loves reading, traveling, long walks, meaningful conversations, exploring backroads, and a good old-fashioned cup of tea.
Our Designs. A Magical Collaboration.
Our original, one-of-a-kind prints and designs showcase a collaboration between Stacy and her 23-year-old daughter, Haley. Haley’s sketches, drawings, and watercolor paintings have become an integral part of Milkbarn’s textiles and fabrics. Our mother-daughter duo creates more than just images on fabric – they weave untold stories, wonder, and love into every piece.
All of our organic fabrics are Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified. This certification helps ensure that our organic cotton is sourced in the most ethical and sustainable ways. Milkbarn is also compliant with all CPSIA product safety regulations and standards.
