Our Story

Our story is a simple one. In 2014 I (Britt) started making kimonos for myself. I wanted to wear loose, comfortable, breezy clothing & I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted here in Canada.

I started sewing & fell in love with it. I made curtains, pillows and makeup bags and eventually kimonos . Friends started asking if I could make them kimonos and strangers started to ask where I got them. Madame Babu was born.

It’s grown really organically and has led me to sewing full time & opening Gold Stitch Studio with a close friend and owner of Clotheslines Vintage Shop. Now all of your kimonos and dresses are made at our dreamy little Gold Stitch Studio in beautiful downtown Barrie.
