We're Moms.
We Get You.

Get To Know Carriage Boutique

It's true, getting our kids dressed up when we know they are going to get dirty almost seems like a moot point. If we as moms have anything in common it's that we like to see our kids all dressed up. Perhaps if it's just for a moment... Grandma is coming, Holidays are here, or maybe it's just for one nice family picture.

Dressy Boys Clothing is Carriage Boutique's specialty. We realize that the stores are filled with playwear and so few options of dressy boys wear.

Welcome to Carriage Boutique- a fine collection of beautiful washable fabrics and tasteful finishing touches that go remember on that fine looking kid.

Yours Truly,

The Moms Of Carriage Boutique!

A Bit More On Our Brand

Carriage Boutique specializes in uniquely designed children's apparel. Our products are competitively priced so that the average family can afford them. We are commited to serving the needs of our customers by providing excellent customer service.

To help that goal we recently moved to a new state-of-the-art building in New Jersey. Today our products can be found in over 1400 stores and we look forward to adding you to our list of happy customers.

Our Brand's History



In 1962, Irene Friedman and her son Leo saw an opportunity to import fine quality children’s apparel to the United states of America. Together they started Friedknit Creations. After a few years of growth the company started its own manufacturing with one goal in mind, to provide the consumer with finely made garments at a price the average family could afford. As the company grew it became evident that larger facilities were needed, therefore they moved the manufacturing to the Philippines.

With these new facilities they expanded into fine smocked woven wear in addition to the fine knit wear that the company was already famous for. Today we are proud to be in our third generation of making beautifully designed and well-made children’s apparel.
