When we scout for items for the MoCo shop we look for items that align with our philosophy and mission. Peace Tree Apparel is just that!

Feeling inspired by the birth of her new family, Julie and her sister Sharon dreamed of clothing for kids that reflected positive messages.  Working with the thought of an  ‘inside out’ concept  of feeling good about one’s self and sharing that feeling with the world Peace Tree Apparel was born. They design all of the shirts and saying together as a family.

With sayings like: ‘One Who is Loved,’ and ‘Love the Skin You’re In’ Peace Tree is inspiring the world one tee at a time. What wonderful thoughts and concepts to introduce to our little ones.

The company also participates in numerous philanthropic activities including Mudula Water a group  working to bring clean water to thousands of people in the Mudula Region of Ethiopia.

We have a number of shirts in stock in a variety of sizes ( baby -womens). Come on by and check out this wonderful line!

I bought my Kozy Carrier when my son was 3 months old. I was looking for a
carrier that I would be able to use on my front or back. I was also looking for
a carrier that would be very comfortable for both my husband and me to use.

I was first drawn to the Kozy because of the mei tai style. This means that the
straps tie on, giving you a custom fit every time. You do not need to adjust any buckles or anything to switch back and forth between mom and dad (or any other helper). The padded straps help make it comfortable for wearing for a long time.

In the beginning, I used it on my front with my son’s legs tucked inside in a “froggy” position. He loved it from the first time. He could always fall asleep in it, even during his first fireworks show last July! As he got older I learned to wear him on my back and on my hip as well. I still love all three of these positions. Wearing him on my hip is great because he can see what I’m doing. The back carry is nice for outdoor activities like hiking and going for walks. Every carrier feels different on different people so I would definitely recommend trying before you buy, however I know the Kozy carrier has been a great fit for my family for the past nine months!

What’s your favorite carrier?  Why do you like that one?
