Nelly Madison was our children's great great grandmother. Born in Iowa in 1883, as a young girl she travelled westward by Conestoga covered wagon to Nebraska. It was the late 1800s, when Americans were on the move and the country was making it's power felt around the World. Nelly was a true American pioneer girl- strong, self sufficient and our inspiration for creating this brand and manufacturing most of our clothing in the USA, with a family run cottage industry manufacturer. The balance of our garments are made by artisans in Central America in a family owned factory that we have had ties with for many years as friends. As our company has grown, we have needed to reach out for this extra help, and are so glad that we have friends that were happy and able to!
Camille had been designing for several well-known apparel brands since getting her fashion design degree in 2001, and was living in New York City designing for a large children's wear brand when we met. Less than a year later we were married and settled into the suburbs of Connecticut, where we are now raising our five children.
We hope you love Camille's exclusive textile designs and our quality, keepsake-worthy clothing,
Steve & Camille
Nelly Madison Clothing Co.
