Less New. More Normal.

We started Omonoro Kids™ in 2020 as the nation's first protective apparel company for children.

We feel the angst of the current public health context and design distinctive clothing that reduces worry and promotes confidence, independence, protection, and style.  With comfortable fabrics, rich patterns, and protective elements, we create children's apparel products that have never existed before but that are necessary in our world right now.  We launched with Omonoro Originals™, twenty vibrant designs of our patent pending integrated masks and shirts.  Go-to apparel that minimizes fuss and maximizes the freedom of childhood.

Think about the stressors facing the average American family and compound that with current guidelines intended to keep our society healthy and well.  Our products sit at the intersection of normalcy and wellness.  We watch how our children learn, live, and play, and we design apparel and accessories that help them simply be.

Why Omonoro?
We wanted a name that embodies why we created this company.  Omonoro: child is greater than gold.  Just one word, from the Urhobo language in Nigeria, represents the responsibility we feel to covet and protect our children.

There is a unique intersection in Micah's brain where her Master's in Public Health and her teaching career overlap - and that's where Omonoro Kids lives. She loved studying epidemiology and has followed the spread of many viruses through the U.S. But something about this situation was different from the start, and she had a feeling that we'd be facing it for a while. Grateful that her family decided to keep their children at home in early March, she wondered how we could protect them once we returned to school. "I had flashbacks of picking up my niece from daycare with another child's pacifier in her mouth. How would she keep up with her mask? When Maya told me about the dream that she had about Omonoro Kids, I knew we had a piece of the solution. A few weeks ago, a cartoon trended on many education-related pages on social media of a poor, harried elementary school teacher trying to deal with various mask issues while trying to teach. Every teacher I know felt responsible for their students' well-being prior to the current public health context. Now, we feel even more responsible for helping to prevent transmission." Micah's hope is that Omonoro Kids gives a little peace of mind to families and educators alike.

Dedicated mother to an 11-year-old son and a 3-year-old daughter, leading a company focused on children is a natural fit. Her inspiration for protecting children's health comes from her daughter, who began suffering from severe respiratory problems at just 13 months old. After countless hospitalizations and steroid doses, she found herself focused on pursuing any options that would protect her daughter's health. "As she grew older, my role transitioned from just keeping her healthy to also teaching her how to stay well. That's why Omonoro Kids is focused on styles that promote independence and responsibility, even at a young age."
