Our Story


Hi, I'm Nicole Garza, Owner of Mally Designs Ltd. I designed and founded the original leather baby bib, Mally Bibs, back in 2005. One day, while spoon feeding my 10 month old daughter Malia, I had that idea to make baby bibs out of leather. Just as I was feeling frustrated with the look of her stained cloth bib, some of Malia's baby food had spilled onto her little leather shoe. I proceeded to wipe it off with a cloth and voila! I was amazed at how easily it had cleaned off, knowing that it would have instantly stained the cloth bib she was wearing. Just like that, the idea of leather baby bibs was born. I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I designed the first ever leather baby bibs that are now a staple in so many households. 

Since the early days of my business, I have expanded my collection of handmade leather products to include coin and card holders, luggage tags, passport holders and art cards and our leather baby moccasins to coordinate with our bibs. Most recently, I started another business, Mission Leather Supply, where you can purchase our die cut shapes, which have become quite popular for jewelry making. See our leather die cut supplies here.

We're retiring from shows plus, a shipping update

The title says it all, and it's true. It's time, and it feels right. After 14 seasons, we have decided it's time to wrap up the Craft Show and Christmas Market chapter in our lives and really start to enjoy the holidays. Our kids are getting older and through the years we have loved doing these shows, but the only downside it that it has also meant being away from our kids for a few weeks and for a very fast paced December served with a side of exhaustion for us all.
