Marley’s Monsters

Ditch the Disposables

Who They Are

Marley’s Monsters began in 2013 when Sarah Dooley, an interior designer, was pregnant with her first child, Marley. Driven to rediscover her passion for creating, Sarah decided to try her hand at sewing a doll for her soon-to-be daughter. Using fabric scraps that she’d been collecting for years, Sarah pulled out her old sewing machine and got to work on her first stuffed monster. This trial and error process reignited her spark for hands-on creativity, inspiring her to begin creating products for her new baby with sustainability and reusability in mind.

From 2013 to the present, Sarah’s business grew alongside her family. Her husband Chad joined the MM team, and they welcomed their second child, Fox. Throughout this growth, they were able to continue designing and redesigning reusable products for the modern family. Handmade in Eugene, OR, Marley’s Monsters has blossomed into a thriving, in-house production and retail space where you can shop while they sew and feel the love that goes into each and every product.
