As you read this I can hear you thinking ‘but isn’t that going to be really expensive’… Unfortunately, untreated clothes do come with a higher price tag so we suggest a savvy money saving option – splurge on the items of clothes that your baby will be wearing close to its skin and for other items such as jackets, cardigans and other outer layers it’s fine to go non-organic.
Organic cotton also has other perks besides being toxin free. It is safer, sturdier and it feels great! Organic clothing may be more expensive when you first buy it, but when compared to the cheaper cotton product it gives you your money’s worth. Conventionally produced cotton material lasts 10-20 washes before it starts to break down. An organic cotton material lasts for 100 washes or more before it begins to wear down. This is because the cotton fibers in conventionally produced cotton take so much abuse in production because it goes through scouring, bleaching, dying, softeners, formaldehyde spray, and flame and soil retardants before it is even shipped to be cut for patterns.
The best materials to keep a look out for are untreated, organic cotton, wool, linen, soy and bamboo. MORI have a fantastic range of products that are all organic cotton or bamboo – check out the range!
