María E. Marcus, designer and owner at Little Threads, Inc. has been passionate about children's clothing all her life. In 2010 she dreamed of creating a children's wear line that would offer sweet, sophisticated, European flair clothing with clean lines and quality materials. María  has been in love with hand embroidery ever since her daughter Lizzy was a year old. Since then she has been designing  hand smocked girls dresses, baby rompers, overalls, First communion dresses, Christening gowns, and many other products  with the nostalgic look of the past without forgetting the comfort that is need it in a child outfit.

During one of her travels to Europe, she discovered some of the finest fabric mills, that was the turning point. It enabled her to create this beautiful line that was named after Marco (her grandson) and Lizzy (her daughter). The line was introduced to the stores through trades shows around the U.S and people loved it: Marco & Lizzy was born.

María works closely with her staff, providing a clear vision for the line every season, following the European colors and trends to create the perfect outfit for your child.
