“We’re profoundly grateful for this opportunity to tell our story and the journey that we’re on,” says Lili Yeo, Founder and CEO of Goumi. “Goumi is dedicating 10% of its profits during this airing—our goumigiving—to provide much needed medical supplies with hopes to help beat COVID-19. Our team has been helping to source critical protective equipment to our bravest frontline medical brothers and sisters.” 

With the birth of her petite daughter, Goumi founder Lili Yeo left her corporate career behind to focus on developing the absolute best essentials for babies to start their journeys, unlocking the power of our smallest.

What started eight years ago with the creation of baby mitts, Goumi has since introduced a children’s apparel line with beautiful, better-for-the planet clothing and, most recently, bedding and nursery accessories.
