Collection Details: Pikolo
Pikolo is a sustainable clothing brand for kids aged 0-36 months. The colourful collection is made with 100% organic cotton. All patterns & prints are designed by Janine in the UK and the clothes are ethically made in a factory in India that have been producing organic cotton clothes for over 30 years so they know their stuff!
They also have the highest level of workers rights, providing maternity pay, holidays & fair, living wages. Jabaresh & his team are amazing. We love that Pikolo clothing is made in the same factory as DUNS Sweden, read more about the factory here.
The prints are gender neutral, fun and happy. We love the fun veggie prints in this collection. You can buy dungarees for your first child & no matter the gender use for the 2nd, 3rd child too. This gives the clothes longevity for your pocket & prevents unnecessary waste.

Pikolo Embroidery Patches:
These patches are either sew or iron on depending on the fabric you are applying to. For some denims & other materials the fabric has a coating on them which will prevent adhesion. In these cases please sew on the patch. Similarly for bags & fabrics that can not take strong heat please sew them on.
To iron: Best fabrics are cotton/ cotton mixes. Lots of heat & lots of pressure are required & you need to be able to iron the back of the patch into place. So for application to a pocket for example they might be best to sew.
- Sew – Use a similar thread to sew you patch into place.
- Iron – Turn iron to a high setting of 3, no steam. place a piece of greaseproof paper or thin material on top & press down firmly for 15-20 seconds. Turn over & do the same on the back of the patch & fabric - this will likely stick better than the front as full heat is required to fix the patch into place. for small details such as stalks or leaves the tip of the iron can be used to go over those areas. If the patch lifts at any time, you can repeat as the backing is reactivated each time it is heated with an iron.
