Pronounced “Oh-So,” Oso & Me is named after our founder Claire Hudson’s beloved (and huge) stuffed animal bear—you can meet him at our San Francisco headquarters! He went everywhere with Claire as a little girl, both in reality and her imagination. He represented the comfort, joy, and magic of childhood—our brand’s guiding principles.
After Claire had her first baby, she was shocked at how quickly her son grew out of his clothes and how nothing matched his growth stage. The quality was disappointing, and every top and pair of pants was difficult to put on and take off.
So Claire founded Oso & Me, a company that designs functional—and beautiful—kid’s clothes that last. A few years later, co-founder Marie Clare Brush brought a deep knowledge of print design and materials to the company. Together we are a passionate team who are obsessed with impeccable detail.
Our clothes can easily go from brunch to the playground and everywhere in between and make your morning routine a whole lot easier.
The guiding principle behind Oso & Me is to make clothing that’s easy to put on, play in, and to care for. Our pieces are as aesthetically beautiful as they are functional. We obsess over special tailoring details, like cuffed hems, flexible waistlines, and neckline pleats. These creative, "growable" designs survive frequent growth spurts. We also focus on pull-on-pull-off styles to foster easy dressing from newborn to size 8. We believe getting dressed should be the easiest part of the day.
When deciding who to partner with, it is imperative that the factory is focused on the health and wellbeing of their community within their space and beyond. The second most important factor is to find craftspeople who are the best of the best. We’ve been fortunate to work with experts in every field, from companies that create high-quality velvet trim in Italy to artisans who specialize in hand-smocking in Madagascar.
We custom design our own fabrics and work tirelessly to make sure we love every aspect of the final piece before we launch. Whether we're using extra-soft, double-knit jersey, organic cotton, Portuguese muslin, poplin, or French twill, our clothes are always preshrunk, machine washer- and dryer-friendly, and made to last.
It’s All in the Details
Without obsessing over the details, our clothes wouldn’t be functional or long lasting. The custom-developed fabrics, sturdy snaps, stacked buttons, and quality trims make our clothes unmistakably Oso.
What makes the perfect tee? Softness and durability. Our trademark, double-knit Float Jersey styles are super soft and silky while still having structure.
Essential vs Limited Editions
Our Essentials line is made up of our bestselling styles—our tops, pants, and dresses that work any way you (or they) pair them. We design our in-demand, Limited Edition pieces, featuring custom artwork by Happy Menocal, to mix and match with the Essentials collection.
Our team is proud to make the styles that you—and your little ones—will reach for again and again. And if you’re ever in San Francisco, please come by our store and say hi. We’d love to meet you (and so would Oso).
