Why choose organic cotton baby clothes?
All Piccalilly organic baby clothes are certified to GOTS standards by The Soil Association.
By choosing GOTS certified organic cotton baby clothes you’re choosing the best clothes for baby and helping to make a difference too.
No harmful chemicals
Tests on conventional baby clothes have revealed traces of pesticides, fire retardants, formaldehyde, and dyestuff. These residues potentially cause allergies and irritations, especially on newborn skin. Given that a baby’s skin is five times thinner than an adult it’s important to minimize contact with chemicals.
Kinder to the environment
Organic farmers use natural techniques and don’t rely on chemical cocktails to control pests and diseases. Instead they use crop rotation and other methods to build healthy soils and grow healthy plants. By contrast, conventional cotton alone is responsible for 16% of all insecticide sold worldwide. Toxic hazardous pesticides can damage eco-systems, poison waterways, and endanger workers who can’t always afford the safety equipment to protect them.
Softer, durable, and comfortable to wear
Our organic cotton is not only farmed with more care it’s also hand-picked too. The quality of our long-stapled cotton ensures not only a super soft comfy finish but durability too, which is ideal for baby clothes which seem to need to be washed more frequently that adult clothing.
Kinder to wear on delicate skin
