Newborns are so precious, that soft, cottonwool skin, all talc-scented and silky smooth. They’re so delicate and delicious there’s no doubt they deserve to be cradled in fabrics that have been harvested from chemically-free crops.

Unfortunately, cotton production represents 3% of our planet’s agriculture, yet as cotton textiles pass through their many processes from soil to customer the use of chemicals represents up to 16% of all insecticides produced worldwide – more than any other crop.

Wow, that’s really something to think about – especially as even after many washes some of these chemicals are still present in textiles.

Ecocotton is unique in that it offers products that are crafted from naturally-derived, raw materials including 100% Aegean cotton which is certified by Global Organic Textile Standards. What a relief to know you’re wrapping your newborn or toddler in a baby range that is crafted from cotton that is free from harmful chemical fertilisers, pesticides, or genetically modified seeds (comprised of 40% fiber and 60% seed).

Bravo to Australian cotton growers who have reduced their chemical use by over 90% in the last decade, with some crops now not being sprayed at all.
