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!

H&M – Organic Cotton News for Moms! October 1, 2010

Hello Ladies! So, you may have heard European retailer H&M has made a push into the organic cotton world. Of course, it’s always great to hear organic cotton being used instead of that icky chemical filled stuff! Here are some details:

H&M has confirmed that by 2020, it will source only ‘sustainable’ cotton, most of it as part of the company’s involvement in the Better Cotton Initiative, writes Tone Skårdal Tobiasson in Copenhagen.

Addressing more than 150 delegates at the recent NICE (Nordic Initiative Clean & Ethical) Fashion’s fall conference in Copenhagen, Catarina Midby, Head of Fashion Communications, H&M, updated delegates on the company’s development of its ‘restricted chemicals list’ and its five-year organic cotton-plan which she confirmed was ahead of schedule; with an original pledge to source 15,000 tons of organic cotton by 2013, the company hit the 8,500 tons mark by the end of  2009.

Organic cotton production does not simply mean replacing synthetic fertilizers and pesticides with organic ones. Organic cultivation methods are based more on knowledge of agronomic processes than input-based conventional production is. This process takes time because farms need to complete a two-year conversion period to change their production system from conventional to organic. An essential element of organic production is the careful selection of varieties adapted to local conditions in terms of climate, soil and robustness to pests and diseases.

Welcome to the fabulous world of organic cotton H&M! 🙂

With fall in the air, its time to  check out your little ones closet and asses. Most likely you won’t get away with reusing  jeans from the previous season. But we know you may have so many fond memories of little Johnny in his favorite pair, you can’t imagine throwing them out!

It’s hard to part with a beloved pair of jeans, but when they become too worn, too small, or too stained, it’s time to let go. Well, at least out of the closet, that is. Don’t toss them out for good!  Here are some creative ways to spice up your favorite pair and let their memory live on. (planetgreen.com)

1. Area rug
Use several scraps of denim to create this beautiful quilted patchwork rug.

2. Coasters
Even the seams of your jeans can be reused. Make these great coasters by rolling the seams and gluing with fabric paint. Quick, easy, and really cute!

3. Memory Box
Cover a box with denim fabric to make this sturdy memory box. It’s the perfect place to store photographs, ticket stubs, and letters from friends. Tuck the pocket inside to hold smaller items.

4. Oven Mitt
Lined with mylar batting, this mitt is will protect your hand from the heat.

5. Lap Desk
Use a lid from an old storage tote and the fabric from your old jeans to make this handy lap desk. This would be a perfect gift for kids or teens.
