All our products are 100% organic cotton. This raw cotton is sourced in Portugal and approved by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). All our dyes are kind to babies and the environment as they are OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified.
We chose to use 100% organic cotton so that there were no man-made materials in our fabric, which means that when you wash one of our suits, no nasty microfibres are being released into the water and the environment. We love our oceans and planet and are trying to have a positive impact on it through our clothing. Microfibres account for 85% of man-made debris found on shorelines worldwide* and we are trying our best to contribute as little as possible to this.
We also dye our clothes using Oeko-Tex compliant colour dyes. Oeko-Tex is a European independent product label based on strict international standards, which guarantees that the dyes and dyeing methods meet EU directives. Because of this, you can use our suits immediately without washing them first as this certification ensures there is no risk of allergies or skin irritation.
Finally, the zips we use are produced by YKK and are safety tested for babies and children.
