Today, we want to let you in on a secret: the whole process of making the products you know and love – Kidsbury organic kidswear.
We select prints, colours, and fabrics months and months before the release, e.g. – the work on the next year’s fall/winter collection begins in early spring. Just when you’re starting to get ready for the summer, we already know what you’re going to be wearing the upcoming winter. Keep reading to learn more about our materials and designs!
As you already know, most of our garments are made of 100% organic Egyptian cotton, and we also have the heavenly soft and warm merino wool line.
Shortly about cotton
Cotton is the most commonly used and preferred material because it is durable, breathable, and soft. Organic cotton is produced and certified to organic agricultural standards with no artificial inputs. It uses way less water to grow since organic cotton growers typically utilize rain way more than irrigation. Plus, organic cotton growers use beneficial insects to control unwanted pests instead of relying on harmful chemicals, thus encouraging biodiversity. It’s good for humanity, and it’s good for the earth. Coton is divided into several subcategories:
Egyptian cotton – the most luxurious variety used for making high-quality clothing. Egyptian cotton grows in the warm, dry climate of North Africa, and is particularly long-fiber, which gives it the much-desired softness and luster that characterizes Egyptian cotton.
Pima cotton – also known for its softness and natural luster. Pima cotton has medium to ultra-long fibers that are ideal for making clothes. Grows mainly in Southwest America.
Uphill cotton – medium length fiber, made in the United States.
Polyester – natural man-made fibers made from polymers. We ourselves don’t use polyester in our garments, however, it is one of the most popular materials in the world. Usually, polyester clothing is relatively coarse and also cheaper in the price range. However, polyester is more commonly used as an ingredient in cotton blends. Mixing materials are also often used, mainly for greater durability.
