Peekaboo’s values and products
The concept was born from a personal and practical idea by founder and CEO Traci Costa who sought a better way to dress her daughter in ultra comfortable, durable, stylish and most importantly, made for ‘playful living’ clothes. Traci’s desire to create a better alternative to children’s wear that was more functional for children drove her to create her first collection. With this goal in mind, Peekaboo designs children’s clothing intentionally crafted to inspire independence and confidence while providing comfort for every occasion.
Founder and CEO Traci Costa states: “It’s not just about the clothes, it’s about play, passion, and possibility. It’s about product with a purpose.”
Rather than using a ‘fast fashion’ approach which focuses on minimal design and high volume manufacturing of inexpensive clothing (cheap & low quality), Peekaboo focuses on unique and practical design using ethical manufacturing.
The name Peekaboo Beans was inspired by a game founder Traci played with her first daughter and their favorite snack, edamame. Even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s children can be seen wearing Peekaboo Beans fashion.
