A Sustainable & Eco-Friendly Promise
Sustainability is important to us, we handpick suppliers that have the same vision as we do. True sustainability is when the whole supply chain is sustainable, from the farmers to the final product. Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe. They are not exposed to toxic chemicals in the field or through their food and water supply. It also means farmers grow more than one crop which supplements their food and income.
Sustainable fashion takes into account the entire supply chain and life cycle of a garment, from where and how it is made to when it ends up in our landfills. Organic cotton farming puts less stress on nature because it ensures farmers detoxify the land that they grow their crops on, use naturally beneficial practices like crop rotation and mechanical removal of weeds and do not treat any of their seeds with fungicides.
Our suppliers also work closely with their factories whether they are close by, like some of our manufacturer’s in Poland have factories that are more accessible and some suppliers have factories that are a little bit further away (India, China and Turkey). They all have a strong social responsibility towards their workers and they have either BCSI code of conduct or SEDEX-code certification. These different certifications ensure that the factories employ ethical business practices when it comes to the welfare and safety of their employees, as well as offering reasonable work hours and wages.
BCSI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) is one of the fundamental protocols for social audits chosen by companies worldwide.
Organic children’s clothes are free from cotton pesticides and harmful substances found in synthetic materials. It will give you peace of mind knowing that you are protecting your child’s skin and avoid getting their skin irritated. We have also decided to sell dolls that are made with organic cotton so that you are covered on all basis.
Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria. The choice of accessories is limited in accordance with ecological aspects as well. A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with social criteria. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is more thorough and covers every step of the supply chain. It is the most comprehensive accreditation covering fibre production, processing and manufacturing.
If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless for human health. The test is conducted by an independent OEKO-TEX® partner institute. In the test they take into account numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health. In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements. If a product is labeled as Oeko-Tex certified it is completely free from harmful chemicals and safe for human use. To attain Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification, the fabric has been tested and certified to be free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances known to be harmful to human health.
Top Quality & Durable
The clothes that we stock can be worn and washed again and again, and passed on to others once your little one has grown out of them. Organic cotton material helps the body keep a healthy temperature, wicks away moisture and ventilates air to keep your child as comfortable as possible. As I have been buying and resold or handed down to siblings/cousins used clothing from some of the brand’s we carry today for the last 7 years, it is important for us to make this option available for you. Seeing our children wear these soft, thick and well made cotton clothes makes me feel comfortable in the decision we’ve made to always try and avoid fast fashion as much as possible. When you buy organic cotton you are investing in water conservation, cleaner air, better soil and farmer livelihoods. The price for organic cotton is sometimes, but not always, higher. However, with demand on the rise, more choices will become available.
