Baabaazuzu is an eco-fashion house based in Lake Leelanau, Michigan. Well-known for our sweater mittens, fingerless gloves, cloche hats and men's line, no two pieces of Baabaazuzu are ever alike. Each piece is lovingly handcrafted in the United States with 100% vintage materials, reclaimed and transformed into a beautiful wearable. Every piece is an inspired original. Just like the person who wears it.
Inspiration comes in many forms. For Sue Burns, Baabaazuzu CEO, Co-founder and lead designer, inspiration came from a laundry error. Had her husband not shrunk some of Sue’s favorite wool sweaters, it could very well be that Baabaazuzu would not exist. But the fact is, he did. And out of the tragedy of Sue Burns’ too-small-to-wear, once-adored sweaters arose an internationally recognized brand. Baabaazuzu products one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly clothing and fashion accessories for women, men and children; including hats, mittens, jackets, scarves, capelets, handbags, fingerless gloves, skirts and more. Original wool sweater mittens.
