About materials

When choosing the materials for our products we pay attention to their quality but we also place importance on choosing Czech producers and supplies. We purchase non-local materials only in those cases when the quality of a certain material is much higher than on local market. 

Cotton

Our wraps are made from 100% combed cotton and woven in the Czech Republic. Combed cotton is treated in a special way before being woven into the wrap, ensuring its unusual softness and smoothness. The wrap is immediately pleasurable to touch for you and your baby.

The yarns used for the wraps are dyed in dye houses carrying an international certificate, Oeko Tex 100, guaranteeing their complete safety. We would like to use other materials other than cotton in the future. You can let us know which ones you would welcome!

Merino

We love our Total Easy Care merino wool with Oeko Tex 100 cetrification, which is extremely easy to maintain. It is a matter of course that our merino is mulesing free. 

Merino wool is a truly brilliant yarn. It comes from the merino sheep whom it enables to survive the toughest winter as well as hot summer. The yarn has a naturally intelligent structure. It´s an active yarn - it reacts to the body temperature. It can soak up plenty of water without feeling wet. It´s soft, breathable and naturally odour resistant.

Tencel

Tencel is an amazing fibre in many aspects. It has unique characteristics related to moisture management: it is able to absorb 50% more water than cotton and it spreads moisture evenly – providing better evaporation. It is antibacterial, soft, pleasant to touch and it has a lovely drape. On top of that it is easy to maintain because it is more durable than other fibers.

Tencel is made out of eukalyptus wood, and it is produced without the use of toxic substances. Its production uses less energy and water than the majority of textile fabrics, earning it the nickname “the green fibre”.

We use Tencel from Lenzing, an Austrian company which earned an ECO-Label for its production of Tencel. The label verifies that no toxic substances or chlorine were used in the production process and that the wood used for the fibre comes from sustainable production.

SeaCell

SeaCell which is also nicknamed Sea Silk is a fibre that contains brown algae Ascophyllum nodosum which are harvested in Icelandic fjords by environmentally-friendly means .The yarn contains many active and skin protecting materials (like amino-acids, vitamins etc.). According to the testing that was done at the University of Jena it contains also antioxidants that can effectively inactivate free radicals. It´s also soft and pleasant.

SeaCell is made by the Lyocell manufacture process where the seaweed is added to the wood pulp. The fibre is made in Germany, the yarn in Switzerland.

Babywearing coat

The most famous and probably the highest quality zippers of the Japanese brand YKK can be found on all our coats and hoodies. Putting the insert on with the baby on your back is difficult enough without having to fight with a low quality zipper.

Softshell coats are made from softshell with the following characteristics:
Waterproof rating: 10,000 mm
Breathability: 3 000 g/m² 24 hod
Composition: 96% polyester, 4% spandex

Babywearing sweater

The sweater is made from Total Easy Care merino wool with Oeko Tex 100 cetrification, which is extremely easy to maintain. It is a matter of course that our merino is mulesing free. 

Merino wool is a truly brilliant yarn. It comes from the merino sheep whom it enables to survive the toughest winter as well as hot summer. The yarn has a naturally intelligent structure. It´s an active yarn - it reacts to the body temperature. It can soak up plenty of water without feeling wet. It´s soft, breathable and naturally odour resistant.

Details matter to us: the buttons on the sweater are made of corozo nut, which grows on the palms in South America. Nuts are picked up after they fell of the trees and used to make beautiful buttons with fine and unique structure. Corozo is also nicknamed the vegetable ivory for its natural beauty and structure.

Skirts

Our skirts are made from the fabric we use for our wraps - we often use larger scraps and other cut out pieces to minimize waste. Lining is made from 100% cotton in girl skirts, in lady skirts we use acetate. The knitwear waist is made from cotton with little spandex. There is also a ribbon around the waist - always take it off before washing.

Ring sling rings

The rings we use are made from lightweight aluminium. They are smooth and tested for mechanical safety and chemical non-toxicity. We know kids love to bite on them! They are smooth, so there´s no risk of damaging the wrap fabric.

Leg warmers

Leg warmers are made in the Czech republic according to our own design. The yarn used is cotton, in case of the dark grey legwarmers organic cotton.

Soft leather baby shoes

Shoes are made of high quality leather and 100% cotton wrap fabric Loktu She. The sole consists of two leather layers with soft 5mm elastic filling in between. In sizes 4 a 5 there is also 1.8mm rubber sole for outdoor walking glued to those layers.
