A new addition… November 28, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — samababy @ 3:54 am

Hi everyone, it’s me, Sama Baby CEO Shivani Gupta.  We have a new addition I wanted to tell everyone about – her name is Anya Rani Gupta, she’s my daughter, she was born this October, about 6 weeks ago!  It has been a CRAZY month and a half, adjusting to feeding, diapers, a totally new sleep schedule.  I was so focused on having a completely healthy, organic pregnancy, and I thought I was prepared for baby, but you can never be fully prepared, I’ve come to realize.  Anya is doing great, she is healthy, happy and beautiful.  Now that she’s on a more normal schedule, I’m ready to get back to work on Sama Baby, so you’ll see plenty of posts from me from here on out.  As well as fun new pictures of course, since I have a brand new Sama model who I happen to love to photograph.

Happy Holidays!

Encouraging trade, not aid, co-founders Erin Brennan Allan and Mary Wambui source their organic cotton from Uganda, where it is grown and spun then brought to Nairobi, where it is twisted, dyed, and Wambui trains and manages a group of up to 200 knitters.

“I provide a clean and comfortable working environment for my knitters–in most cases bringing the work to them,” said Allan, when asked in e-mail correspondence about the enforcement of fair trade standards. She continued, “They can work as much or as little as they like or are able to; are paid by the piece giving them flexibility to put their families first; and their wages are above the government minimum wages and reflect the cost of living in Nairobi for skilled workers.”

Harlow Madden’s Snazzy Sneakers October 15, 2010

 

Harlow Madden sure looks pretty in pink!

While out for family pizza night with dad Joel Madden, mom Nicole Richie and little brother Sparrow, the adorable 2-year-old stepped out in an adorable girlie-meets-punk ensemble (tiered print dress, graffiti-style sneakers and flower headband). But it was her colorful footwear that really caught our eye.

Turns out the curly-haired cutie was sporting Twinkle Toes Dualing Hearts ($37) shoes from SKECHERS KIDS. Bright and glittery, they feature a hip graphic design and light up! (People.com)

These snazzy sneakers would look adorable paired with our Sama Rockstar Dresses! The colors in the shoe go perfectly with the our raspberry rose print. Keep it rockin’ Harlow! Check out SamaBaby.com for more color options!

Why Choose Organic Baby Products? October 8, 2010

Filed under: baby,entrepreneur,green,organic,organic cotton,start up — samababy @ 8:00 am

Most people might wonder what is the BIG difference between organic and ordinary clothing. Well, the difference is quite simple, yet it has a big impact. Simply put organic baby clothes are 100% safe while ordinary clothing can harm your child. Ordinary clothes contain harmful chemicals, toxins and pesticides which are present both in natural and synthetic products. These chemicals can cause skin allergies and diseases. Organic baby clothing is made from eco-friendly and bio degradable materials which mean that it is totally natural and safe.

Organic products do not use chemicals in any stage of development or manufacture so all the products are toxin free. Unlike normal products like cotton which have pesticides and fertilizers sprayed on them during cultivation, green baby products are completely natural without the presence of any chemicals. This type of cultivation is good both for the babies and for the environment as it reduces pollution. Safe growing methods will obviously yield safe products which are a pure product of nature.

Organic baby products will give your child chemical free environment by keeping your child away from harmful chemicals. A healthy environment is essential for the healthy development of future generations. So go green to protect the present and the future!

At Sama Baby offers the purest, softest organic cotton children’s clothes to families around the world. For more details on natural baby products and organic baby products please visit our website SamaBaby.com.
