Only 1 % of the cotton grown in the world is organic.
The story behind conventional cotton is not as fluffy and soft as one could wish. The use of pesticides and unfair working conditions are reasons why we all should think twice when buying conventionally produced cotton.
Organic cotton does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs - genetically modified organisms. Instead, it combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved. But what you should be aware of is that when you buy a product labelled as organic cotton the rest of the production chain - such as dyeing, printing, coatings etc. might still be conventional.
All organic cotton garments from Mini Rodini are certified from seed to finished product by GOTS-– the strictest certification for organic materials on the market today, which involves rigid controls throughout the entire manufacturing process - including the use of harmful chemicals as well as fair working conditions.
Ze zijn er weer! De lente én onze favoriete fotografe Hannah Lipowsky! Ze ging een samenwerking aan met de creatieve styliste Julie Cordewener. Het werd een funky fresh lente fotoshoot met pop-out kleuren & zoete kindjes.
We kunnen altijd terugvallen op de oude, vertrouwde spijkerbroek. Zit lekker, voelt veilig én hij staat mooi. In deze outfit gaan we alleen die vertrouwde skinny vervangen voor een coole boyfriend fit jeans.
Uit je comfort zone en style de jurk gewoon even anders bij je dochtertje! De likes, reacties en vragen over deze outfit waren enorm. Gelukkig dat jullie ook zo fan zijn van onze manier van combineren.

Spanish brand Nadadelazos collections are different, colourful, and incredibly comfortable for children to wear and just feel free. They are unique for their special hand-drawn illustrations and bright colours. If you are trying to wrap your tongue around the name then try “Nada de Lazos” which means no laces or no ties – extra comfortable clothing that’s all about getting the kids dressed quickly so that they can get on with playing. Clothes for real kids!
All Nadadelazos collections are ethically produced and have the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified label.
The SS19 collection is inspired by a retro trip to Torremolinos, in Spain.
When we’re choosing clothing for our kids, we tend to pick the softest materials, the cutest prints and most comfortable designs, and we should! Our sons and daughters deserve only the best. But there are other things you should be looking for in your kids clothing.
Did you know that some dyeing processes add chemicals to the textiles that can be absorbed into your body through your skin? A study conducted by Greenpeace states that over 20 brands had hazardous chemicals in their finished products for adults and kids – who are more vulnerable to the effects of these chemicals.
So why should you prefer dressing your kids in organic cotton clothing?
Organic cotton clothing is better for sensitive skin such as children’s as well as for those ,with allergies. Organic cotton farmers use only organic-approved fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides from plants, animals and minerals to prevent pests and diseases. This reduces the risk for your health while also protecting farmworkers and reducing environmental pollution.
But the origin of the cotton is not all that matters. For example, at Barn of Monkeys they take great pride in being GOTS certified (Global Organic Textil Standard), the leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
This means that from the moment that the cotton is picked up, they guarantee that the production of the fiber, processing and manufacturing of the clothes is done so within the GOTS standards!
And do you know what that leaves you with? A piece of clothing that is even softer than the common cotton clothing yet more durable which means that your clothes will look better for longer!
Jeans are, hands down, every childs favourite thing to wear – which is why they’ll love these three super fresh trends for spring.
Why restrict yourself to blue? Jeans now come in every shade of the rainbow. Pops of colour – from neon to pastel – are everywhere at the moment and how much fun are they? Also, super-skinny (like this pair) doesn’t mean super-uncomfortable. These jeans are specially designed with bendiness in mind and move with children, whether they’re climbing or curling up on the sofa. Don’t just save coloured skinnies for the girls; boys will love them too, and they’ll get massive props from their mates for being so cool.

Denim dungarees for little children have always been a thing, mainly because they look so darn sweet. But now older children (and grown-ups too) are getting in on the action and taking the look from cute to cool. It’s another throwback Nineties trend (remember Rachel rocking them in Friends?) but this time round, they’re more streamlined and preppy.
Boys and girls love denim shorts, so it’s pretty much guaranteed they’ll love this spring-time update. Layer whatever you want underneath depending on their vibe, from boho blouses and classic stripes to slogan tees and sweats: anything goes. And, like standard shorts, for girls they can be paired with leggings or tights for year-round wear, so they’re great value for money, too.
