About Zutano ®

Zutano began with an amazingly simple idea that was inspired by the arrival of Michael and Uli Belenky’s first daughter — create high-quality clothes with a variety that comes from mixing and matching prints, patterns and textures. The result was a lovingly created line of baby clothes that was as unique as their precious daughter. Today, twenty-four years later, they continue to create magical children’s products in the foothills of Cabot, Vermont. Zutano strives to support a nurturing world for babies to come into. The company believes that business has a responsibility to appropriately manage and protect the environment and community through respectful holistic practices locally as well as globally. It is a solid example of a sustainable global business based in the hills of Cabot, Vermont. Founded by Uli and Michael Belenky in 1989, Zutano is now available at more than 1,500 gift and specialty boutiques and retailers worldwide as well as on the web at select e-tailers and Zutano.com. New York’s famed FAO Schwarz houses a 500-sq ft. Zutano boutique, which carries the entire line of sweet and sophisticated designs.
