We started from our home as a husband and wife team when our first daughter was just 11 months old and our lives changed forever. Before, in all honesty we didn’t buy organic and beyond the normal recycling we didn’t make much of an effort to care about the environment. Our perspective has been forever changed by our little one, the need for worrying about the quality of what we wear on our skin and put in our mouths, as well as the environmental impact of it all, has taken a forefront in our minds. That is why we have started this little shop and we hope that you feel as passionately about it as we do.
We started off by selling organic clothing and reusable nappies. This quickly expanded into wooden, sustainably and responsibly sourced toys. We started subscription services for wooden figures by Holztiger, Lanka Kade and Ostheimer in 2016, which have proved immensely popular. Since those times we have branched into home, including reusable bottles, plastic-free toiletries, and reusable bags. We try to promote the end of plastic pollution.
We are now a team of eight hard-working mums and dads working from a warehouse not far from our home. All of us are dedicated to living environmentally friendly lives and passionately dedicated to the cause. We all share a love of nurturing children; both in play and education. No third parties, no marketing experts, just from parents, to parents.
We also run a number of Facebook groups, both as general and as support groups for parents.

Why Organic Textiles?
Organic textiles are not only softer, and more friendly to the skin, but they can help the environment in a number of ways. No chemical pesticides are used and the farming process produces fewer CO2 emissions. Organic farming methods use up to 60% less water than conventional methods and no pesticide or herbicide residues are entered accidentally into the environment. No chemical residues are left on the clothing, which is important against the soft developing skin of babies and can lead to fewer allergies and outbreaks of eczema in those suffering. Organic textiles are hard wearing, and the trading of second hand textiles is very popular leading to less waste. And when the fabric finally is discarded, pesticides and herbicides are not returned back to the earth via landfill.
