Designed in, made in, and shipped from New Jersey, USA.

Hello, curious! My name is Betsy Cook and I'm the woman behind the brand National Picnic. 

I cut and sew in atelier (in my studio workshop) from a pattern library of styles I designed to be well-fitting and fun, based on classic pieces loyal customers rely on season after season. 

Making clothing in the studio

Make-to-order and small batch production is the heart of what I do, for customers who appreciate the time and attention put into each garment. This way of working isn't going to dress the masses, but that's not the point.

It feels good to know most of what gets made is headed to someone in particular. It allows for more unique and special pieces for YOU, and ensures the high quality you deserve.

It's a delight to be shipping to places all over the country! 

It's my pleasure to make online shopping a more personalized experience for so many fans. Thanks for letting me be your "neighborhood" boutique, wherever you live.
