NEW BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zutano, a leading designer of infant and juvenile clothing and accessories, announced today that they acquired Morgan & Milo, a brand best known for their fashionable and exceptionally comfortable toddler shoes. Zutano has been creating award-winning juvenile products, with a focus in infant and early walker footwear, for over thirty years. Their expertise in the category is a perfect match for Morgan & Milo’s product offering and Zutano customers will now be able to continue buying products from a trusted brand well into their kids’ toddler years.
“I started Morgan & Milo with one, simple idea; to design the best kids’ shoes ever,” said Mia Abbruzzese, President and Founder of Morgan & Milo. “Over the last sixteen years, we have designed and delivered top quality shoes and we are excited to continue building our brand with Zutano.”
The expanded shoe line features five different styles for both boys and girls, and includes sizes from 6 to 13, retailing for $48 each. The line includes:
- Dazzle Mary Jane
- Charlotte Mary Jane
- Nina Double V
- Archie Flame Double V
- Miles Double V
Zutano’s mission to work towards making their products more sustainable is complemented by Morgan & Milo’s company values and commitment to sustainability. Zutano eco-friendly cotton clothing and accessories are now only made using 100% Organic GOTS-certified cotton and are free of lead, phthalates and flame-retardant chemicals. Morgan & Milo’s shoe boxes are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and were designed to promote recycling by encouraging kids to keep their box and play with it long after the shoes are worn in. Games, mazes, riddles, quotes and fun characters cover the natural kraft paper box designed to reduce waste. Both companies will continue moving forward under Zutano’s umbrella and stay true to their commitment to create sustainable and eco-friendly products.
We pride ourselves on offering high quality clothing, footwear and accessories for babies and first walkers,” said Steve Schuster, Chief Operating Officer of Zutano. “Morgan and Milo is a great complement to our existing product lines and we are looking forward to being able to continue serving our customers from their newborns’ first snuggles to their baby’s first steps to their toddler’s first playdate.”
With Morgan & Milo added to Zutano’s portfolio, the brand has now expanded its children’s footwear offering from the newborn stage up to approximately age six and seven.
