Our Story

Young Colors began in 1998 after Rob and I finished working with Esprit, which had taken us the the Far East for 3 years.  Then we backpacked Southeast Asia for 3 months...seeking indigenous art process to make a unique collection of children's clothing, gifts and accessories...On that trip, I discovered batik. I immediately thought it would be an awesome fabric for kids' clothing. The ancient batik art process utilizes nature to create incredible fabrics. When these fabrics are made in bright, fun colors, they make wonderful and practical clothing for children. After further research, and a blessing disguised as a turn of events, Rob and I moved back to the states and decided to build the business together.   

What an experience building our own brands via our Best in class Boutiques throughout the United States that we wholesale to through our Dallas & Atlanta showrooms.   These boutiques helped us dress cute kids for 22 years. 

We opened our first very own boutique in historic downtown Salida 10 years ago.  We then opened a flagship shop in Cherry Creek North in Denver and a shop in McKinney, TX.  Eventually we shifted all efforts to our Breckenridge and Beaver Creek locations.  

This year the pandemic shut us down hard in Vail Valley and Summit County.  We retrenched back home to Salida and built our on-line shop.  This summer we re-opened Cowboys & daisies in downtown historic Salida, CO.  We've come full circle!
