We started using Ethical Children’s Clothing shortly after we started using cloth nappies on the twins. Coming from the clothy world most of us made that transition into buying colourful clothes and leggings for our boys. I would have shied away from leggings etc with Lucas but with the twins, I was much more adventurous clothing wise. Leggings are amazing for crawlers and they give children lots of freedom of movement which a tighter stiffer jean wouldn’t necessarily give. Plus they are super cool on boys and girls, paired with converse/vans for boys and little boots and shoes/converse for girls. I have been kindly gifted some beautiful leggings for the twins from Ali at Tutti Frutti. We are very similar in our backgrounds and I was delighted to receive a pair in the post 🙂
Ethical Children’s Clothing
Tutti Frutti has been awarded and nominated for multiple awards over the years. It’s very clear why. Ali is very passionate about the clothing she produces. There is a clear ethical stance in relation to using sustainably sourced fabrics. Like Ali, I love to know the ethical footprint of the fabrics that my children wear. Ali uses organic cotton which is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard. To reach this standard the companies must reach a certain level in relation to working conditions/pay/working hours/no forced labour etc. Alongside this Tutti Frutti uses Oeko-Tex 100 certified non-organic cotton. Another stringent certification process that tests the fabrics for any leftover chemical residues. This really shows me that Ali is passionate about the fabrics that she makes her goods with.
Tutti Frutti Clothing
Like me, Ali has 3 children under 7 so she knows what children like in relation to comfort, seams and textures. The range includes items for all and everything is made in Hertfordshire by Ali herself. The full range includes leggings (as featured) tops, dresses, dungers and pants. As a side note, I hope she starts making mama pants because I adore WAHM pants. There is also a wide variety of fabric patterns to choose from 🙂 The leggings that we have been trying out have been a massive hit with Logan. They are made from 95% Organic cotton and 5% lycra. They hold their shape, stay up well, haven’t shown any signs of colour fade with washing so all in all a complete winner.
