This children’s clothing company in McKinney, TX found its niche making stylish masks for kids

January 5, 2021 – The Dallas Morning News – For Molly Goodall, 2020 was great for business.

The owner of the McKinney, TX-based children’s clothing brand Little Goodall said she saw her 10-year-old company flourish when she pivoted to selling colorful masks for kids during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s been a wild ride,” Goodall said.

Last spring, she said, personal protective equipment was at a premium — particularly children’s PPE. Consumers were having a hard time finding masks that fit their children.

At the same time, local sewing rooms in Garland, Farmers Branch and Arlington, which Goodall used to make her products, were experiencing a decrease in business due to other vendors canceling their orders.

Goodall was then able to manufacture more of her products, including masks and other children’s clothing, all of which she designs. And for each mask purchased, Little Goodall has pledged to donate a mask to “someone in need.”

The Parsons School of Design grad says the masks account for about 25% of her business now, a considerable figure given that she has only been making them for roughly nine months.
