About us

Bumbelou creates high quality fashion with a heart as we give back to help empower girls around the world. Our small team works from our Mankato, MN studio surrounded by the beautiful materials that inspire us. We sew children’s clothing sizes 0-5T and also handmade hair accessories that are wearable, playful, and lasting: Because clothing should be more than just beautiful. 
Knowing how impactful every purchase can be we use 10% of our profits to support girls through sponsorships at Compassion International.

Jenna Odegard | Founder of Bumbelou, LLC
Hi, I'm Jenna. I LOVE collecting vintage toy sewing machines, am a huge podcast nerd, and crave color and pattern. We do weekends in our pajamas, and make sugar cookies for every holiday. I will read a textbook as enjoyably and eagerly as a novel. Sewing runs through me as deeply as breath and my soul can't help but be pulled to create. Thank you for being a part of this crazy, fun, and often unexpected life that God carved out for me!
