Sustainable and fair baby longsleevesOur baby longsleeves are made sustainably and fair. They are made from organic cotton and have the Global organic textile standard (GOTS) certification. All our longsleeves and other baby clothes are made in India and produced from organic cotton. Organic crops are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides. With organic agriculture natural fertilizers and fertilizing techniques are used instead, including compost, manure, naturally derived mineral and plant fertilizers, and crop rotation. Compared to conventional cotton, organic cotton has a lower carbon footprint, because organic cotton farming requires less energy and healthy organic soil can store more carbon. The production process also requires less water. Furthermore, it enormously reduces the grey water footprint (polluted water).
Easy fastener in our sustainable longsleevesAll our sustainable baby longsleeves and most other sustainable baby clothes have a new and unique fastener. Our unique closure is a newly developed fabric. It is a polyester microfiber that is engineered to be microscopically small. It adheres to itself immediately by frictional force, resulting in a secure bond without pulling apart. The tiny fibers and loops are super soft resulting in clothes without any hard parts. You just have to put the fabrics together and push it gently. The gentle push gives it an even better hold. This new fastener makes it easy and faster for you to change a diaper or change baby clothes and it makes it more comfortable for your baby. With this longsleeve there is a fastener attached at the back. This is designed to make it easier to dress your baby. The fastener makes the opening for the head bigger, which makes it easier to put in on your baby. The fastener is also soft and easy to close.
You can wash the baby clothes with our new fastener in your washing machine together with other clothes on a low temperature. In fact the low temperature is mostly advised for the cotton and not even for our fastener which can take on even higher temperatures. The fabric works based on friction so when washing the longsleeve, the fastener can catch some fluff or lint from your other garments. To prevent this from happening, you can simply wash your sustainable baby longsleeve ‘closed’, meaning with the fabrics touching each other. You can also wash your organic longsleeve in a separate washing bag. Should you accidentally forget this, no problem! Even with a little lint caught in the fabric it still works fine. When a lot of lint is stuck you can notice a slight deterioration of the friction. In this case you can easily remove the lint with a lint roller or tape.
