So very happy to now be offering Sleep No More clothing at Marcella's Meadow. One of my daughter's favourite ever Summer dresses is from here.
They offer quirky, fun designs which are just my type of thing. I hope you love them as much as I do. They do a small number of adult t-shirts as well so keep an eye out for new designs becoming available here.
WHAT IS ORGANIC COTTON?
Organic cotton is grown using environmentally friendly techniques without using any chemical fertilisers or pesticides. Organic cotton is grown without any nasty chemicals, pesticides, or genetically engineered seeds. Our apparel brand features only organic cotton baby clothes that are made with only organic manure and naturally derived pesticides.
COTTON AND YOUR BABY
Wondering how cotton clothing affects your children? Did you know that a child’s skin is thinner and more porous than that of an adult? An infant’s skin absorbs things more easily, making it more susceptible to physical and environmental factors. A baby’s skin is less resistant to bacteria, especially if it’s irritated from fabrics or various skin care products. All these contributing factors contribute to children being at greater risk for pesticide-related health problems than adults.
Lotus Bio-Mineral Organics states that, “Millions of children in the US receive up to 35% of their estimated lifetime dose of some carcinogenic pesticides by age five through food, contaminated drinking water, household use, and pesticide drift.”
The ink that we use is eco-friendly reactive ink , not pigment ink.
pigment ink has lower colour fastness than reactive ink, and it is not as soft as reactive ink after printing on the fabric.
our ink is non-formaldehyde, AZO free, heavy metal within a safe standard, non-toxic, which is A level and benefit for baby products.
WHAT IS A GOTS CERTIFICATE?
A Global Organic Textile Standard is the world’s leading textile processing standard for organic fibres. It ensures the organic standard of textiles from the harvesting of the raw materials to the labels of the finished product and every step in between.
Since its establishment in 2006, the Global Organic Textile Standard has been supported by the demand for organic cotton materials. The organisation has gained universal recognition by encouraging manufacturers to supply organic textiles with one universally accepted certification. The GOTS label is becoming increasingly more visible on natural textile shops, brand dealers, and large-scale retailers. This acknowledgment is a milestone for consumer recognition and the widespread desire for smarter, more naturally derived products.
