Hey there, eco-conscious parents! September is here, and you know what that means – it's Organic September! But what exactly does it mean to "be organic"? Well, let's break it down. Being organic isn't just about choosing pesticide-free fruits and veggies; it's a holistic system that covers everything from the food on your plate to the clothes on your back. We're celebrating all things organic as well as the effort and commitment required to cultivate things in a way that works with nature rather than against it. 

Organic farmers and clothing manufacturers are on a mission to produce high-quality goods using methods that benefit our whole food and fashion systems, from people to the planet, plant health to animal welfare. So, it's not just about nourishing your family with wholesome, chemical-free produce but also about dressing your little ones in organic cotton and sustainable materials that are kinder to their skin and the environment.

So without further a do, let us dive right into the brands that not only we love, but the planet loves too...


Since 2015 Mori have been using the softest organic fabrics to give you the highest-quality products, which are made with your family’s wellbeing in mind. All their pieces are thoughtfully crafted using sustainably sourced fabrics and manufactured in trusted factories. As well as being kind to the planet, their fabrics are gentle on a little one’s delicate skin.

What makes it so sustainable?

The environmental footprint of their signature fabric is reduced thanks to viscose in the blend, which increases the durability of the fabric and the product's lifetime.

Merino Kids

Meet Merino Kids, all the way from New Zealand! They've got your little ones covered from head to toe in the cosiest sleepwear, sleeping bags, and cosy comforts, all made with 100% natural fibre and merino wool. So whether you're looking for the ideal pieces fit for tiny newborns to the toddling tots, there is something for everyone.

Back in 2003, Amie Nilsson, a mum herself, was on a journey to find the perfect PJ's for her daughter. But when she discovered a sea of synthetic options flooding the market, she decided to roll up her sleeves and make a change.

What makes Merino Kids so great?

We're glad you asked! Well, it's down to the pretty magical merino wool. Merino Kid uses 100% natural fibres, especially merino wool, to create their baby garments and it has so many added benefits including bacteria resistant, improves sleep and creates a micro-climate around baby, helping to regulate your little sleepers temperature and keeping them perfectly cosy throughout the night.

What we recommend for your little one

Whether your newborn has just made their grand entrance into the world or is already nestled in your arms, that very first piece of clothing they wear is a cherished keepsake worth holding on to.

The Merino Kids Cocooi Beanie + Bootie Set is designed especially for newborns and made with 100% super soft, superfine merino wool. 

Not only is it designed for the ultimate comfort of your newborn, but it also keeps their tiny head and toes snug and protected during their early days.

And here's the magic part: it's naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, which means it's perfect for those sweet little ones with sensitive skin or eczema concerns.

Children and baby food pouches
