Feather Baby Adds a Soft, Organic Touch to Layette

Feather Baby
Every now and then, we come across something that catches our breath, and make us smile. The new Fall 2010 collection from Feather Baby is one of those things. The modern mix-and-match layette collection is made from 100% organically grown Peruvian Pima cotton in its pure, unblended form which is carefully spun, knitted, printed and dyed using a certified 100% organic process.

Feather Baby makes sure that pesticides, chemicals, phlalates, PVC, heavy metals and bleaches have no place in their processing or manufacturing to ensure only the highest standards and most appealing products from start to finish. A beautiful and cozy drape embellishes the luscious lilac colors woven into appealing prints that are refreshing for fall.

HuggyBunny Hops on the Comfy Clothing Eco-Trail

For a child with super sensitive skin, finding clothes that don’t irritate and itch can become a challenge of trial and error. This quest for soothing comfort is the reason HuggyBunny exists! Creative designer Andrea Chrem understands how it feels to be a child that is sensitive to certain clothing, and has made it her mission to provide soft baby and toddler clothing that is affordable, and free from itches, bulky seams, and scratchy tags!

All of HuggyBunny’s vibrantly colored, tag-less clothing is made with the softest pima cotton available and sewn with the high-quality superiority of 100% cotton threads. Using water-based dyes and chemical free processing, Chrem has come up with a line that is very bright, uniquely modern and refreshingly cheerful. Every carefully conceived motif is hand drawn by Chrem herself and she prides her art on being aesthetically pleasing and realistic, plucking her inspiration from the beauty that is available in nature. Currently, HuggyBunny is working towards expanding the line up to size 6 and proudly donates 3% of profits to the rain forest.
