ClaudiaAfter the birth of her 4th child in 2014, Claudia Marion began the search for something that defined her and her experiences as a mother. A clear focus landed on women-focused products and with that the name Stork and Dove was born, representing both the bird of devotion and that of love. This name has since become the umbrella brand for her growing line.
