frequently asked questions about the Bebito products and process
who makes these?
Good question. Bebito is a brand of goods invented by Rachel Hedges, an artist in Indianapolis. She creates them with the help of a studio assistant and a lot of coffee. Bebito is also sustained by a strong community of supportive customers, friends and family.
what do you make these out of?
sweaters - mostly wool and cashmere repurposed from items that are found, donated or discarded
repurposed leather - mainly cut from used jackets or skirts
vintage fabrics - interesting or cool patterns or designs from fabrics or textiles from days gone by
felt - wool or synthetic felt in bright or bold colors is perfect for details.
new fabrics - a small amount of new fabrics are used, usually plush or faux fur
embroidery floss - from the giant collection inherited from Rachel's grandmother.
polyfil - the toys are given their shape when stuffed with polyester fiberfill, which comes from a recyclable source when possible, other times we use brand new.
vintage Eletreo Grande Deluxe - sewing machine that must be 60 years old but still works great!
