FAQ & Policies

Proud to be a Michigan brand!

River Babe Threads was established in 2014, initially as a small handmade shop offering bandana bibs. I've always been a designer at heart; in high school I produced shirts for my local sports teams, and throughout college I did the same for my cheerleading team. Those experiences led me to some wonderful relationships with screen printers, which led me to eventually designing a line of graphic tees for River Babe Threads. Our first run of products were targeted to infants, but the concept grew from there. The past three years have been a wild ride and we cannot wait to see where this adventure takes us! Thank you for shopping small and supporting our business.

Due to the handmade nature of our items, orders require a production lead time up to three weeks. We always aim to ship earlier, but depending on order volume and our production schedule, it may be the full three weeks. We do not operate out of a large warehouse or with a big staff. We personally handcraft and fulfill thousands of orders each month with a staff of 10! Please note: our bi-annual sales (Black Friday & Anniversary) and holiday pre-orders are subject to up to 5 weeks processing time. We may partially fill your order if necessary to expedite holiday items. If you receive a partial order, your remaining items will be fulfilled ASAP. Thank you so much for your support, and for your patience as we hustle to get your orders shipped.
