What are your items made of?
Both our swaddle blankets and burp cloths are produced under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). We are actively seeking the same certification for our pajamas.
Our items are made of the highest quality and softest fabrics we could find. Our blankets and bibs are made of an extremely soft blend of bamboo rayon and cotton. Our onesies and baby gowns contain 5% spandex.
How often do you ship?

Where are your items manufactured?
End-to-end contract manufacturing no longer exists in the US at the scale we would need. Therefore, our items are currently manufactured in India and China. If you know of any manufacturing partners who can help us bring manufacturing to North America, we would love to hear from them.
Under what conditions are your items manufactured?
This is an important question and one that matters to us deeply. We are in the process of certifying our manufacturing partners by the SA8000 Social Accountability Standard, and will continue to do so on an ongoing basis.
The SA8000 Standard is the world’s leading social certification program. The SA8000 Standard and Certification System provide a framework for organizations of all types, in any industry, and in any country to conduct business in a way that is fair and decent for workers and to demonstrate their adherence to the highest social standards. Created by SAI in 1997 as the first credible social certification, it has led the industry for over 20 years.
