In 2016 a pregant mama on maternity leave, Lillian Mintaya, decided to pick up a hobby of sewing. To refine her sewing skills she decided to make herself baby slings out of ankara fabric. After receiving many compliments she decided to open an Etsy shop and sell her creations. 

The baby wraps were well recieved by her community and women raved about the beauty and comfort of the wraps. Shortly after the ring sling was introduced to the line, made of pure %100 linen.

Then, life happened. She moved states, went back to work and later was divorced. Three Honey Bees, went on hiatus. 

In 2021, Lillian decided to relaunch her first love, Three Honey Bees Co. With clarity and vision she reopened the shop and revamped the brand. Her objective is to educate, create safe space and offer products to the new millenial moms that understand the importance of natural parenting and wellness.
