Safe and natural
All our products are created using only natural fabric fibers of bamboo and where stated bamboo and cotton. They are all OEKO TEX standard 100 class 1 certified and if organic they are additionally Eco-Cert certified.
This provides assurance that not only are our products from sustainable natural sources, they are also free of any nasty chemicals, making them perfect for your baby’s delicate skin.
Did you know that bamboo requires 3/4 less water than cotton to grow? Being grass, bamboo is self generating and grows extremely fast, it also doesn’t need any chemicals and fertiliser to grow.
Our towels, blankets and bedsheets are made from either 100% bamboo or 70% bamboo and 30% cotton.
We see our packaging as an extension of the products we offer, therefore they are not exempt from our eco-friendly practices. This is why all the packaging we use is 100% biodegradable. Yes, you read that right. From the labels used on our products, to the bags you receive your orders in, to the packaging we use, in fact it is so friendly to nature you could bury it in your garden, and it would decompose naturally over 6 months.
