Today’s parents are determined to protect their children from harmful chemicals, and raising their little ones to take care of Planet Earth is also a priority. Organic children’s clothing is growing in popularity, but consumers are often disappointed by bland color choices, scratchy textures and ordinary designs. The Origany brand has overcome these objections as it satisfies aesthetic sensibilities and strives to provide “Clothing Made Organic by Nature™.”
Satsuma Designs’ brand NEW ultra soft and cozy boat neck jumper and pants set is great for romping and lounging. Luscious organic bamboo velour is paired with natural colored bamboo velour cuffs at arm and ankle that can be rolled up and down for ‘room to grow’. Boat neck is wide for easy on and off. We recommend pairing this with a tee or onesie. Pants sport a 1/2” wide elastic waistband.
Choose Cocoa, Lime or Plum Stripe in 3-6 months or 6-12 months sizing.
Coordinates with Satsumas’ popular and fast-selling Bambooties and Bambeanie hat.

Animal, vegetable or mineral? Unlike the children’s game, no guessing is involved when products are labeled “certified 100% organic,” manufactured as food, fiber/textile or personal care products to confirm the quality, prevent misrepresentation, and encourage organic commerce.

The Giggle Guide® showcases four OTA members to highlight some of the ways their products support the certified 100% organic label: Sckoon Organics, B nature, Pure Blankz, and Fresh Organics.
