Finding the perfect fabrics to design breastfeeding wear was not an easy task at first, as we were adamant we only wanted sustainable and safe fabrics that were also 100% natural and made entirely from plants. Currently, most fabrics available for clothing are a blend of natural and synthetic, which we aren’t willing to compromise with. We extensively searched for and consciously chose high quality sustainable and natural fabrics made without any harmful synthetic fibers, to protect not only you and your precious baby, but also our beautiful planet and environment.

It feels very soft, gentle, light, and comfortable. It is highly absorbent, giving the owner an amazing experience every time they wear it. Being wrinkle resistant, no time will be wasted ironing!

Also one of the world’s oldest sustainable fabrics, linen is made from the flax plant and feels very soft, comfortable and luxurious. Grown organically without the use of pesticides, it is hypoallergenic and a natural antiseptic (perfect for being near babies!). Being very durable and extremely strong, linen clothing will last for many years. It is the perfect fabric for Summer as it is breathable and absorbs water quickly, evaporating any liquid very efficiently, leaving you feeling dry and cool. Linen also acts as an extremely efficient insulator, meaning it is an excellent fabric choice for Winter. Produced from 100% natural flax fibres, it is entirely biodegradable ad recyclable.
