The word “chaboukie” came about as a nickname for our little guy Auden who is playful, kind, and easy-going. It’s easy to forget exactly how these nicknames came about, but we think it went something like this: Bug > Bugaboo > Boo > Bouks > Chaboukie! When it came to dressing him, we wanted clothing that didn’t feel like your typical “kid clothes” but rather clothes that we would wear. We found out that it was pretty difficult to find ethically made, sustainable, gender-neutral clothing for our son. That’s when Chaboukie the brand began. We designed and produced our first line in 2014. Chaboukie designs are a reflection of our free-wheeling Southern California lifestyle and our commitment to sustainable practices. Our design inspirations come from our own wardrobes, music collections, and people-watching field trips around the world.
