A Turnip Tale

Ever since she was a child, Rachel Luzi loved drawing and followed her passion, graduating with a BFA in Illustration and Design. In 2003, Rachel started her very own custom clothing line, Tiny Turnip, named after her other passion for gardening. One of her favorite vegetables, the humble turnip, is known for its unique color, durability, resilience and ability to be cultivated organically and sustainably, even at small scale, just like Tiny Turnip. 

In 2005, a friend of Rachel’s and wife of a major league baseball player encouraged Rachel to cultivate a line of clothing for her family and the families of other players on the team.  Whenever a player was traded, their new team members would ask where they got their family’s unique gameday clothing.  Over time, this single relationship grew into relationships with hundreds of families across all 30 MLB teams and even getting officially licensed by MLB in 2016.

In 2012, Jalynne Crawford - a former star gymnast at UCLA, wife of Brandon Crawford of the San Fransisco Giants, and a soon-to-be mom, was gifted a Tiny Turnip blanket and other baby items from another player’s family.  Jalynne immediately fell in love and, a passionate clothing designer herself, started collaborating with Rachel to cultivate specialty mom and kid-focused designs for her own growing family and for the wives and families of other Giants players.  

In 2020, Jalynne officially joined Rachel as a co-owner, managing partner, and co-chief designer at Tiny Turnip, to help create new Tiny Turnip designs, and make them available to more MLB families and fans.  

Since then, Rachel and Jalynne continue to work together to grow Tiny Turnip. Offering licensed apparel for women and children in all 30 MLB teams and expanding into Churchill Downs, and NCAA. They also continue to collaborate with the wives and families of athletes to create custom game day apparel that commemorate the special moments and memories that are shared as a family.
