Nosilla Organics


Soft, organic cotton fashion for kids up to four years.

111913_NostillaOrganics_03The first thing you notice about Nosilla Organics‘ line of sportswear and pajamas is how happy the kids who are wearing it look!

Our motto is, gentler on the planet, kinder to the people.

111913_NostillaOrganics_04Six years ago, designer Allison Grace created this high-quality and affordable organic collection, which is made using 100% SKAL certified organic cotton carrying Global Organic Textile Standard, Organic Exchange and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. She searched the world over to find fabric that is not only certified organic, but manufactured in factories that are also certified fair trade by the Fairtrade Labeling Organizations International.

111913_NostillaOrganics_02It took a little doing, and now this British Columbia-based company is recognized as one of the cool, hip and kind organic cotton collections available today.

Holiday Tip: Allison creates adorable fantasy dress-up outfits for little girls under her My Fair Fairy label.

Available in shops and boutiques in the US and Canada.

KinderStuff


082813_Kinderstuff_ownersA pretty revolutionary approach to kids fashion.

Dr. Alexander Reichhuber, Sebastian Schmoeger and Rob Rebholz are the German entrepreneurs behind KinderStuff, ditching their corporate jobs to develop a totally new venture- not only is KinderStuff a young apparel brand, but a brand new way of shopping that makes “hand-me-downing” cool again.

Created in Los Angeles. KinderStuff is what they call the world’s first fashion brand that lets parents send the fashion back, once their kids have outgrown it, free of shipping charges and in exchange for a discount on their next purchase.

All hand-me-downs we receive are donated to charity, because we believe outgrown baby clothes have a higher purpose than just ending up in a box in the attic.

082813_Kinderstuff_onepiece100% Organic Cotton. The clothing is made from the highest quality 100% organic cotton, plus the bodysuits, t-shirts and long sleeves for babies up to two years is super-stylish. KinderStuff teams with  local urban artists on modern designs that celebrate “both the vibrancy of youth and the forward-thinking trends of eco-fashion in Los Angeles.” Plans are underway to add hoodies, pants and hats for kids up to six years.

Made in Germany. These guys are not only committed to social responsibility, but to ecological sustainability, collaborating with industry experts to make the line in the world’s best factories as well as fan-parents, to continually improve upon the products and services they offer.

082813_Kinderstuff_websiteKinderStuff is the realization of a father’s vision, developed through the help of his two friends and the efforts of an amazing team across the globe, created with the hope for a better, more colorful future.

Young Over-Achiever. Just over a year old, KinderStuff has already won prestigious kudos from Natural Child World as the Best Fashion for Kids in 2013 to several Red Tricycle nominations, so they’re on a roll!

Who wouldn’t love that?

Land of Looms


061913_LandOfLooms_OnePieceSafe for baby and safe for the planet.

Rinat Hegde has launched a modern, beautiful and chemical-free line of rompers, onezies and blankets for children called Land of looms.

“Land of looms was born with the intention of providing baby clothes that are made from 100% certified organic cotton,” Rinat tells me. “They are very soft and gentle on baby’s sensitive skin, clean and simple in design, and fashionably timeless.”

Organic cotton is pure, natural and more breathable, with none of the harmful chemical residue found in regular cotton clothing. The softer, thicker cloth also lasts longer because its less processed.

It’s every parents dream to welcome their precious little ones into a world that is free from all toxins and to nurture them with all things pure, just as nature intended.

061913_LandOfLooms_RomperLand of loom clothes are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)-certified, designed and manufactured according to strict ecological and social standards. The natural color and sweet graphics that personalize each Land of looms design use non-toxic dyes and are made in fair trade factories. They’re also machine washable.

061913_LandOfLooms_Blanket“As parents we try to make informed choices, but sometimes we get caught up with the overwhelming choices that are presented to us,” Rinat says. “When you shop at Land of looms, you are assured that all products are safe for baby and safe for planet.”

Adorables for Earth Day – Burt’s Bees Baby


041613_BurtsBeesBaby_earthdayAll the natural goodness that Burt’s Bees is loved for, made especially for little ones.

Last year, Burt’s Bees® -a name that stands for natural skin care- introduced Burt’s Bees Baby, an earth-friendly lifestyle brand for babies and their moms.

Launched as a “natural” evolution of the Burt’s Bees brand, Burt’s Bees Baby has introduced an entirely new genre into the natural and organic markets, catering to the family that shops locally, buys organic and visits famers’ markets.

And you can buy it at Target.

We are building on that tradition by offering families a high quality, organic line of products that starts with babies and expands to the entire family.

041613_BurtsBeesBaby_lifestyleThrough a licensing venture with brand building and product design firm Ayablu, Inc., the line includes newborn essentials such as apparel, accessories, bath linens and gift sets, as well as skincare. And the relatively new brand seems to exude both the character and spirit of the Burt’s Bees brand, described as “whimsical, carefree and intent upon doing things in a ‘better way’ -in a way that is accessible to all.

“The Burt’s Bees Baby brand was thoughtfully crafted in the glow of the Burt’s Bees brand mission,” says Michelle Visser, Ayablu’s CEO. “We wanted to bring you a product line that would nurture children – soft, natural pieces and 100% organic. Building on a culture of caring and well being, our mission is to create a collection that frees families to relax, enjoy and revel in every moment with their little ones.”

041613_BurtsBeesBaby_giftbasketAn expert in the children’s market, Michelle has launched children’s brands for Ralph Lauren, Tiffany & Co and Lucky Kids, and help senior executive jobs with Pottery Barn Kids, Nike for Kids and others.

Burt’s Bees Baby is a high-quality, organic collection trusted almost immediately by the shopping public. In addition to e-commerce, www.burtsbeesbaby.com serves as an educational platform with original editorial content and as a forum for moms and moms-to-be. The brand is poised for growth, with plans to add apparel and accessories sizes for toddlers and children, new categories including diaper bags and gear, health and safety, playtime, seasonal offerings, furniture and other products the family.
