Momtrends feature! April 27, 2009

Hey Everyone! Please click on this link to see our feature on Momtrends.com!

Read this, “Every organic choice you make leave an impact on the lives f others who depend upon a healthy planet.” That’s from the label of a new brand called Sama Baby–a collection of truly luxurious organic baby clothing.

They sent me a bib to check out. The cotton was sumptuous–nothing crunchy about this. And the bib was printed with the sweetest little baby elephant. The collection is made in India with certified organic cotton and promises that the garments do not involve sweatshops.

In addition to being green, these clothes are incredibly cool. I clicked around the website and found a few favorites like the Double Layer Strap Dress ($28). And I love the chic simplicity of the Gown with the tiny elephant graphic ($25)–perfect for a newborn baby boy.

The Dark Side of Conventional Cotton April 16, 2009

When we think about global warming, increasing cancer rates,  and sensitivites to chemicals, our clothes closets are probably not the first villain that comes to mind, but our clothes can be a significant, quiet co-conspirator.

Cotton evokes images of white, fluffy purity and many people think of cotton as being a natural, pure fabric.  Cotton is a wonderfully versatile and globally important fiber that is used for a vast variety of fiber and food products, making it one of the most widely traded commodities on earth.  Versatility, softness, breath-ability, absorbency, year-round comfort, performance, and durability are just a few of the qualities that have earned cotton its popular status.  Due to its unique fiber structure which can absorb up to 27 times its own weight in water, cotton breathes and helps remove body moisture by absorbing it and wicking it away from the skin.  Not only is cotton the most popular and best selling fabric in the world, due to its huge commercial value, cotton also represents an essential component of foreign exchange earnings for more than fifty countries.  The value and reach of cotton extends far past the fashion runway.

But, the global cotton industry has a worldwide Dark Side of which most of us are not aware as we fill our shopping bags with inexpensive cotton shirts from major clothing stores.  The simple act of conventionally growing and harvesting the one pound of cotton fiber needed to make a T-shirt takes an enormous and devastating toll on the earth’s air, water, and soil that impacts global health.  Also, policies and practices within the cotton industry from crop subsidies to garment sweatshops create poverty and misery that stretch around the world.

That is why Sama Baby is different. The CEO and VP go to India EVERY SINGLE YEAR to inspect the cotton. To go to the fields. To speak the language, to meet with the farmers. We go to make sure everything is completely organic following the HIGHEST level of organic cotton. We make sure that everyone is treated fairly, that we are supporting local villages, that we make sure it is FAIR TRADE!

People buy our product because they believe in our story, they believe that companies should be hands on when making a product, and they are inspired by what our team does to ensure that we handle everything ourselves!
