Why organic cotton?
Cotton is made of the fibers of the cotton plant. This plant, which is cultivated in (sub)tropical regions, needs a lot of water and is sensitive to insect-pests.Â Organic cotton is cultivated without the use of chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Only biological controls and natural fertilizers are allowed for the production of organic cotton. In addition, organic farmers make use of the advantages of bio-diversity in order to keep the soil fertile.
For reasons of health
We don't want to expose children to toxic chemicals and pesticides, that's why we choose to use organic cotton. Additionally, organic cotton cultivation protects the health of the farmers involved and protects the environment.
To protect the environment
If no pesticides and synthetic fertilizers are used, no harm will be done to the environment and surface waters. This is a major improvement for the mainly poor countries where cotton is cultivated.
For reasons of fair-trade
Traditionally produced cotton is cheaper than organic cotton. This statement is only true if we disregard the hidden costs of traditional cotton cultivation. Hidden costs are the price the local community pays to fight for example the pollution of the environment or waters.
Why pure sheep's wool
Pure sheep's wool has two important qualities. It absorbs body smell and adjusts to body-temperature quickly; perfect attributes for soft toys for babies and children.
For every baby, toddler, or preschooler
Because of the sheep's wool our soft toys are warm and seem to be alive. The wool stuffing of the toy absorbs the child's smell, that's why our toys become trusted cuddly friends.
For premature babies
These soft toys are a comfort to premature babies and will help them relax. How? The parents of a premature baby should sleep with the toy or keep it near their skin for a day. When the toy is left in the incubator with the baby, the baby smells the familiar scent of his parents.
