We take great pride in and carefully select our production partners. We partner with a handful of facilities to produce the best garments for your kids under fair conditions.
Our corduroy and terry are both deadstock organic cotton sourced from Herbal Fab, a family-run company in Gujarat, India. They grow their cotton in Madhya Pradesh, and process it locally. They and all of their subcontractors are GOTS certified.
The items are then sewn in Mumbai, India by a non-profit cooperative that supports women in Mumbai through meaningful employment and supportive resources. They are GOTS and Fair Trade certified.
Our organic cotton is farmed under the most stringent certification possible—it is both GOTS and IVN BEST certified. It is grown in Kyrgyzstan and Uganda, where the farming practices support the local economy with fair wages and a strong focus on building local sustainable agriculture knowledge. In Uganda, the local farms are supported by the Gulu Agricultural Development Company, which has partnered with leaders in sustainable agriculture development including Acumen, Mercy Corps, Root Capital. In Kyrgyzstan, the farmers are supported by the Swiss aid organization Helvetas, which provides education in organic farming practices.
The cottons are then milled, woven, and processed by Elmer & Zweifel, a German manufacturer with a strong commitment to natural fibers, the environment, and fair labor practices.
The cotton farming and fabric production are all fair trade certified with the Fair for Life standard from the Swiss Institute for Marketecology (IMO).
The garments are manufactured in Portugal, where there is a long history of skilled craftspeople manufacturing clothing and strong labor laws that support workers. Our accessories are made in the Netherlands at a social-service atelier that employs people who have faced barriers to traditional employment.
