Organic cotton is gaining popularity across all fashion and homewares categories where cotton has always been a go-to fabric, but it’s easily the most prevalent in baby clothing and bedding, and there’s a reason why. If there’s one less thing to worry about when it comes to their bubs, mums are on board. Organic cotton provides a certified chemical-free bedding option, reducing the possibility of skin irritations and reactions. It’s a soft, natural fibre that’s breathable and hypoallergenic. As an added bonus, organic cotton certified by Global Organic Textile Standard has been made in a supply chain that’s free from forced or child labour, with wages in line with the International Labour Organisation’s minimum wages. Put simply, if bub’s sleeping easy, mum’s sleeping easy. That’s a win win. Here’s our top picks for organic cotton baby bedding by Australian and New Zealand brands.
