Founded by architect and mother Carrie Shaltz Haslup, Tabeeze (pronounced TAB-ease) is a Los Angeles-based company providing parents and their children with innovative, "fuss-free" clothing solutions that adhere to the most stringent sustainable production practices possible. Carrie founded Tabeeze after watching her brother and sister-in-law struggle to dress and undress their newborn daughter for skin-to-skin-feedings. The stress and discomfort of squeezing clothing over her delicate head and twisting her little arms into sleeves seemed like an obvious and unnecessary design flaw. Armed with her Masters in Architecture, a pair of kitchen scissors, and an old t-shirt, Carrie began deconstructing the design of the traditional baby onesie to make it more functional, ergonomic, and comfortable for both parents and their babies. What started as an experiment in 2016 eventually led to her invention of Tabeeze's first product, the Bottom-Up Baby Bodysuit. We intend to lead by example in setting a new standard for responsible and sustainable business practices in the baby clothing industry and are proudly 100% GOTS Certified Organic, a Certified B Corporation, and a 1% For The Planet member.
