"Our goal is to create good looking, practical and comfortable clothing."

Created by two sisters who are also mothers, Geggamoja revolves around the fact that young children are naturally honest, blunt at times and certainly bright, so this should be reflected in their clothes.  Our Geggamoja collection is certified as organic, too.

Most of Geggamoja's organic children's clothes are unisex, with solid colours matched with classic stripes in new fresh colour combinations and Scandinavian designer appeal.  

This creates organic clothing which suits both boys and girls and allows children to play and explore in natural comfort while looking naturally stylish.  They are clothes made for children to be children in - and that matters to us at Cambridge Baby.

 

Geggamoja_certifiedbyGOTSGeggamoja have chosen to use organic cotton certified to Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) because as well as producing better cotton and therefore better quality clothes, GOTS sets environmental and social standards throughout the manufacturing process which include cultivation, harvesting, production processes, manufacture, packaging and labelling.

Here is how Geggamoja describe their business ethos and approach: "We aim for a broad and long-term environmental approach to our entire business, which is a constant factor in all decision making at all levels. Our goal is to have a 100% sustainable company."

Kudos to them! Let's support them to achieve that goal.

What stands out for us about Geggamoja?

Good looking, comfortable, long-lasting clothes that get passed on from child to child are definitely a step in a sustainable direction.  And if they are organically and ethically produced from farm to shop, well that's a perfect fit with our ethics!

We also love how soft Geggamoja's cotton is.  Thick without being bulky, it is high quality, soft cotton, and flexible on the children's skin.  What's more, Geggamoja's clothing is designed for children's comfort and comfortable they truly are.  They've been staples in the wardrobes of Cambridge Baby's own children, washed heaps of times and passed on in true sustainable fashion - and they still look and feel GOOD.

A bonus feature:  Geggamoja's clothes have a handy label inside to write your child's name on. That way, wandering tops might make their way back home...

Danish label FUB arrives with Merino kids clothes

Monday, September 30th, 2013

We're delighted to welcome FUB back to Cambridge Baby with this season's timeless Merino wool kids wear. 100% fine Merino wool top for kids by FUB FUB's Merino wool is tested to meet Oeko-tex standards, so you can be sure it's safe for your children and the environment. And we can attest to it's silkiness! Unbelievably fine and silky wool that is just perfect as a warm and insulating layer.

100% Merino wool grey cardigan for kids by FUB FUB's classic styles also, we feel, work well as pure wool school uniform, particularly the 100% wool leggings and the wool rib skirt.  The unisex grey wool cardigan above, with natural trim, might also be an option, if your school uniform is flexible! Extra-fine 100% Merino wool kids leggings by FUB These leggings are a very fine knit, almost as fine as thick footless tights, but in a really beautiful knit and elastane-free, cosy soft wool. 100% Wool Skirt for Girls by FUB in Navy and Grey Available in navy and grey, my girl will have both the leggings and skirt for her primary school uniform next week when the weather turns cooler. I know, she is lucky to be a Cambridge Baby baby 😉 Wool pull-up pants or trousers in navy by FUB and wool rib skirt Designed in Denmark, FUB set out to make clothes in natural fibres for children to keep children comfortable. One of the designs we particularly loved for its practicality is the pure Merino wool neck warmer or collar. Neckwarmer in Merino wool for children by FUB It will stay on! It won't fall off and get lost! It keeps the chest warm, covering that little gap after the top coat button. And in very soft Merino wool, it won't be itchy either. What do you think?! Helen x
