Why Choose Organic Cotton Clothing for Your Kids: The Benefits of Natural Fibers

by Bailey Bouwman

As a parent, I searched high and low for the best children's clothing - from big box stores to high-end boutiques. But it wasn't until I discovered the world of organic clothing that I truly found what I was looking for.

At Nest & Sprout, we believe in providing our customers with high-quality, eco-friendly clothing for kids that's safe, comfortable, and stylish. I've started to bring to you my favourite brands of organic baby and kids clothing to help Prince George, BC and Northern BC residents get access to the best clothing for baby and children. 

Why Choose Organic Cotton Clothing for Your Kids

Organic clothing is made from natural fibers like organic cotton, wood pulp, and hemp, which are grown without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals. This makes it a safer and more sustainable choice for your kids and the environment.


Bonus: organic clothing is often softer and more comfortable than conventional clothing, which is important for kids with sensitive skin. It also tends to be more durable - designed with a heavier GSM and weight, organic clothing holds up to children's play, constant washing and is generally more likely to be handed down to the next kid.


Organic Cotton Clothing is More Comfortable

My family absolutely love wearing organic cotton clothing because it's so soft and comfortable. Our journey into cotton started with the search for the perfect pair of kids underwear, where we landed on Q for Quinn.

The high-quality nature of organic cotton plants produces fibers that are not only gentle on the skin but also breathable, making them perfect for anyone who wants to feel comfortable all day long. What's even better is that organic cotton clothing is less likely to cause skin irritation, which is great news fir you have sensitive skin. I love that I can wear organic cotton without worrying about any adverse reactions!

Lastly, I appreciate that brands that design that organic cotton clothing manufacturers often incorporate into their designs like flat lock seams, and seamless tags. This reduces sensory experiences making the clothing more comfortable.

Organic Cotton Clothing is better for the Environment

Did you know that organic cotton clothing is a better choice for the environment compared to conventional cotton, synthetics, and even bamboo rayon? It's true! Organic cotton supports sustainable farming practices and reduces the environmental impact of clothing production. So not only are you doing your part in reducing your carbon footprint, but you're also supporting ethical and sustainable fashion.

When it comes to choosing organic clothing for kids, it's important to do your research and find the most sustainable and comfortable option. We try our best to do research and look into brands but sometimes things are overlooked, or we get too excited about a product based on trends and hypes. 

Organic Cotton Clothing prioritizes Ethical manufacturing practices

Many organic kids clothing brands prioritize ethical manufacturing practices and even work with Fair Trade certified suppliers and factories.

For example, two great brands that prioritize Fair Trade manufacturing of their kids' clothes are Toby Tiger and Picallilly. By choosing organic clothing from these brands, you're not only supporting fair labor practices, but also ensuring safe working conditions and environmental sustainability.

We are working on asking our brands to provide more information and transparency around manufacturing practices to improve the collections we carry. At Nest & Sprout our children's clothing collection is not perfectly sustainable, but we are slowly working on improving these conversations with our partners. 

Organic Cotton Kids Clothing offers Unique and Stylish Designs

We're not sure why but there's just something about the pop of colour that organic cotton kids clothing offers. While the sad beige neutral aesthetic might be in for some baby stores and nursery's, we embrace a more maximalist aesthetic of big bold colours that bring joy and excitement to children. 

This gives kids an opportunity to express their personalities with bold prints, vibrant colors, and sustainable materials. 

Consider Organic Cotton Kids Clothing

We believe that choosing organic clothing is a simple yet powerful way to create a safer and more sustainable future for our kids.

Whether you're preparing for the next season or just looking for comfortable, eco-friendly clothing for your kids, we've got you covered. Shop our collection of baby and kids clothing today and join us in making a positive impact on the world.
