We only use GOTS certified Organic Cottonwhich is the gold standard for Organic fabrics. Our fabrics are also unbleached to ensure the safest, non toxic sleep environment for your child.
Not only is Organic Cotton much softer, Organic Cotton also represents a return to safe and sustainable practices. It is grown with natural fertilizers and is free from toxic chemicals. Organic farmers rely on crop rotation to replenish and maintain soil fertility.
A baby's skin is up to 5 times thinner than adult skin, they have higher metabolisms and lower weight making them extremely susceptible to absorbing toxins and more sensitive to chemicals.
Organic cotton has none of the harmful chemicals found in normal cotton and is produced without the use of pesticides making it a much healthier option, especially for infants and those with skin conditions such as eczema.
And it's not only the health benefits that make organic cotton such a great alternative to conventional cotton garments. It is incredibly soft and gentle to the touch while the gentle chemical free processing leaves it substantially stronger and more durable than conventionally grown cotton garments.
