Our Suppliers


We care about transparent sourcing, quality and sustainability. It is very important to us that we only work with suppliers who share our values.

sourcing

All our cotton is sustainably-sourced and manufactured according to strict internationally-recognized standards. We produce our collections in Madyha Pradesh, the heart of India’s textile industry, using 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton. No fillers or substitutes.

Our swaddle blankets are made using hand loom weaving, hand screen printing and stitching.

organic provenance

Organic

This refers to the way that agricultural products are grown and processed.

Organic cotton production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers.

Organic cotton is minimally processed without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or irradiation to maintain the integrity of the food.

Certified Organic

This means that the product has been grown and manufactured according to strict uniform standards that are verified by independent state or private organizations.

Certification includes inspections of farm fields and processing facilities, detailed record keeping, and periodic testing of soil and water to ensure that growers and handlers are meeting the standards which have been set.

Global Organic Textile Standard

GOTS is the gold standard for sustainable processing of textiles made from organically grown fibres (such as cotton or wool).

Our swaddles are checked at every step of the supply chain, from harvesting through production, processing, manufacturing and labelling. The environmental management and social responsibility of producers is also independently verified.
