Organic Cotton Denim: Seeds of Jean-ius July 26, 2010

StreetInsider.com is a next-generation financial news analysis service. StreetInsider.com gives you an ‘inside’ look at Wall Street, providing access to information once only available to the Wall Street elite.  StreetInsider.com separates itself from other news services in its commitment to focus only on market moving events and analyze news in real-time.

Street Insider spotlights Sama Jeans

Organic Cotton Denim has become a must-have in everyone’s closet, including celebrity babies and tiny tots. Organic cotton children’s clothes have also become very popular amongst eco-conscious parents around the world.

Stylish babies are taking over the celebrity scene quickly becoming the next big fashionistas. From rocker Kingston to tom-boy Shiloh and even girlie Honor, all the celeb tots are donning a fall must-have – stylish jeans.

The newest, hottest brand to do designer baby jeans is Sama Baby. Their organic denim line exploded onto the children’s fashion scene in spring making a huge splash. Their jeans are high quality, organic, and affordably priced at $40 a pair for babies from 12 months old to six-year olds.

Their idea grew from a little seed of an idea, explains Head Designer Neha Gupta. The brand’s goal was to create a pair of jeans that are beautifully hand-crafted and focused on organic living in a unique way. Each pair has a special “seed pouch” for tots to put their little seeds in and plant their own garden. “We are focused on going green, organic, natural, and caring for the planet in all aspects of living. So the seed pouch was an important idea for us to pass on to children. It’s all about caring about the environment,” said Gupta.

Each pair is designed for the kid on the go with super soft denim, an adjustable elastic waistband on the inside to create a stylish outer appearance, laser-etched tags instead of itchy sewn-in labels, their embroidered elephant logo on the pocket, rock star elephant lining, and square pockets for boys and diamond-shaped ones for the little ladies. The denim is lightweight for mobility and all day play and designed to accommodate various shapes, sizes, and growth rates.

Sama Baby follows the highest standards for organic cotton garments like using eco-friendly dyes, an environmentally safe dyeing process, and biodegradable bags to store their fabrics. Staying true to their heritage, the Gupta’s produce Sama Baby products at a family run, fair-trade factory in India where the family frequently visits their cotton fields and oversees production. “The cotton denim is organic, obviously, but so is the entire process down to the weaving and dying. Plus, they’re made in India under certified fair-trade conditions, so I feel like I’m actually doing a little good for the garment workers of the world in the process,” explains Gupta.

Sama Baby Denim is sold online and at high-end boutiques across the country.

Add a pair to your “jean” pool today by visiting SamaBaby.com to buy or find a retail location.

Kimberly and Brad Paisley: City Girl, Country Boy June 15, 2010

the williams paisley family

When Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams first began dating, the odds were not in their favor. He was a small-town Southern guy turned country singer, just becoming famous for his witty song lyrics and killer guitar style. She was born and raised in New York, then moved to Los Angeles while co-starring in the long-running ABC sitcom According to Jim. She knew zero about country music; in fact, she thought that at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry they sang, well, opera. To him, her Hollywood world had questionable values. “I used to be pretty judgmental back then,” he says.

Then they had dinner together — and afterward both were convinced that something important had happened. “Maybe two people in love always feel like there’s a bigger power at work,” says Brad, 35. Kim, 36, nods in agreement: “We just felt like all the events of our lives had come together for us to meet right when we did.”

The couple got together in the fall of 2001. But Brad fell for his future wife long before he even met her. Ten years earlier, as a 19-year-old aspiring musician in tiny Glen Dale, WV, he spent his first date with a local girl watching Father of the Bride, the movie in which an unknown actress named Kimberly Williams made her film debut.  “I thought, She seems like a great girl — smart and funny and all those things that are so hard to find.”

Finally, one clear and starry night, Brad walked Kim out to the end of the Venice Beach pier and made a speech about how they were meant to be in each other’s lives, and vowed he’d always be there for her.

In February 2007, Kim gave birth to the couple’s first child, a highly energetic boy they named William Huckleberry Paisley (called Huck for short).

Kimberly Williams-Paisley devised a clever way to tell her husband, Brad Paisley that she was pregnant for the second time with Jasper.  She had their 1 ½- year-old son Huck do it! 🙂

We just love this couple! They are adorable and down to earth. We hope you enjoy your Sama Products!! We recently received a thank you from them through Jewels and Pinstripes.

Oh thank you! I was so excited to receive the great birthday box of goodies for Jasper. It is so full of great treasures, as always. I’m ecstatic about the little bites storage jars. Jasper likes to feed himself now and I’m always needing safe, non breakable bowls for him to use – especially when we are on the road. And these are made for travel. I could go on and on but I am running out of space.  Thanks for thinking of us Julie!
I hope you are well – Kim

P.S. Also happy to learn about Kids Against Hunger. We will make a donation…

Michelle Caplan, Son Sasha and the Elephant Gown! April 1, 2010

I am a mother, freelance writer, editor, holistic coach and therapist blogging my mother quest. On this blog, I am exploring my life-long yearning to connect with a mother figure as well as sharing my pilgrimage to become a mother. The realization of life as a new mother and how it has transformed this motherless girl shares space with my investigations into the archives of my life where I hope to better understand and connect with the mother I was born to and the one that stepped in to raise me. The essence of motherhood in theory and in practice; discovering and nurturing the Divine Mother’s wisdom; writing as a form of creativity and fertility are all topics that call to me and will hopefully appeal to my readers as well. My goal is to tap into a sisterhood of mothers and empower the mother within us all. I recently realized that all the work I have done in my life: my graduate training in Education and Psychology; the years of working with writers to give birth to their vision as an editor, coach, and ghostwriter; the continual training and practice of mind-body therapies–was leading me to this mission–learning, knowing and communicating the mystery of mother on WSM. To learn more about Michelle Caplan visit her blog at http://womanseekingmother.blogspot.com

Check out these ADORABLE photos of her baby in our Sama gown 🙂

Is Sasha still wearing those Sama gowns?
Of course.
But they’re for babies.  And they’re for girls.
He’s still a baby.  And Sasha is one groovy gown wearing boy.

Some of the Stages of Sasha’s gown wearing: To see more photos visit her blog








When it’s cold or when Sasha is getting busy, especially now with his enthusiastic walking, we add lounge pants and wear the gown tunic style.



Michelle’s thoughts on Sama:

Sama Baby makes the best organic gowns we’ve found, and they are generously sized but they only have the gowns up to 12 months so we are approaching the end of our glorious gown days.  So we will be continuing on with their rompers which Sasha also wears with style.

Thanks for the photos Michelle and Sasha! Our Elephant gown has never looked better! 🙂
