It’s always difficult to find nice, good quality clothes for boys. We are loving these t-shirts by UK ethical brand Boys & Girls. They’re 100% organic cotton and Fairtrade certified so you can feel good buying and wearing them too.
The ‘Bright as Day’ tee (£14) comes in green, sizes 4 up to 8 and the “Out to Play’ tee comes in red sized 3 to 8. The sweatshirts (£22) are in a really
soft grey 100% organic cotton, also with ‘Out to Play’ logo and are from age 3 to 10 years.
They are available from one of our favourite local children’s clothes stores, Urban Meadow based near Wimborne. The business was set up by Claire, an organic dairy farmer and Alex, an ex-marketing manager, who have 5 children between them.
Owner Alex Williams says, “The organic cotton means no harsh chemicals are used in the growing or processing of the fabric – this makes it kinder to skin as its less likely to trigger allergies – but an added bonus is that they wash and wear much better as the fabric is stronger and stays softer longer than in conventional cotton garments. Our first collection is all sweatshop free and mainly organic – we’ve selected brands for their great quality as well as style as we really believe its worth paying a little bit more for clothes that can be worn again and again and passed on to siblings.”
