We're Hiring!

We're always expanding our team at Briar and we're looking for the right people to join our community and grow with us.  

 

Briar Baby is a baby brand with a modern edge. We’re known for our high-quality materials, impeccable craftsmanship, and sought-after styles - and for our continued commitment to producing quality products here in our studios in the Pacific Northwest. Our baby bonnets are unique and especially loved by modern parents across the globe.

Briar’s founder, Rachel Goode, began creating her signature bonnets shortly after the birth of her daughter, Gracelyn Briar. She understood the need for a tie-hat that was both beautiful and functional, and took it into her own hands after the inability to find it in the marketplace. The overwhelming response to her handmade and heartfelt bonnets was the beginning of Briar Baby as you know it. Our products are proudly made in the USA by a dynamic team of production sewists who continuously strive to improve processes, execute new ideas, and make the Briar brand a lasting name in the baby industry.

Our open workshop is spacious and filled with natural light, and offers a casual, collaborative environment that houses a vibrant and fun workforce. We work hard to foster a positive and healthy work environment, and strive to be inclusive of all backgrounds.

Our production studio is located in Vancouver, Washington (just across the river from Portland, Oregon). Check out the available positions below, and let us know if you think we're a good fit!
