About

BEAUTIFUL HANDCRAFTED BABY & CHILDREN'S GIFTS USING PREDOMINANTLY ORGANIC COTTONS.

It was with the encouragement of my daughter Jion that the idea of tie-tees grew to fruition. And then after our grandson George was born I decided to make him a quilt out of the best materials on the market, which I soon discovered were organic cottons! And then on doing research for the base cotton garments it became more and more necessary for me to follow the same choice with these too and so Billy Boo Organics emerged. It's true that you will obviously pay more since decent wages are being paid in the cottons' production and it is not causing damage to the environment but you will be getting a far superior garment, that I guarantee!

So come on into the shop, it's early days so check back regularly to view my latest additions, and remember that I am more than happy to take on custom orders.

    Began sewing when I was 12 at school and made some pink 'baby-doll' pyjamas. At 18, my second item was a Christian Dior Vogue coat in cashmere and since then have not looked back! At present I am very much into organic cotton.

    Hello & Welcome to BillyBooOrganics where you will only see 100% certified organic & fairtrade cotton products. The idea for the childrens garments with appliqued ties came first, to which was added a multitude of stencils. Welcome custom orders.

Hello & Welcome to BillyBooOrganics where you can browse amongst my organic creations which are all handmade in my home in the Poet's Corner area of Hove, East Sussex. Each item is individually designed and created to make a special gift.

With regard to the 'Tie-Tees', I aim to transform the humble tee-shirt into a garment fit for a wedding! Yes, gone will be the days of trundling around the shops for a 'suitable' outfit for your young son to wear on the big day, instead you can be confident that they can look smart whilst still being able to move around freely!
They are designed to withstand hard wear and since all of the base garments that I use are organic & colour-fast it is safe to machine wash on a hot programme, although not recommended for environmental reasons!

The Junior T-shirts, Envelope-Neck T-shirts & Babygrows are all from the EarthPositive® range of organic clothing. These garments carry the certified organic trademark label.

My mission is to source only certified organic materials where possible and to ensure the minumum of waste materials at every stage of my work. I aim to use business to further inform and interest my customers in the environmental problems caused by the farming of non-organic cotton.

To read more about the impact that organic farming methods have on the environment, in sharp contrast to non-organic methods, then please visit www.global-standard.org. You will also find an interesting article on cotton that is farmed in Uzbekistan, together with an award-winning video, on the environmental justice foundation website at www.ejfoundation.org
Payment
If you require a custom order then payment is required in advance of commencement of the work.
Shipping
Postage and packing is calculated based on standard delivery to keep overseas shipping costs low. I obtain proof of posting, but if you would prefer signed-for delivery or tracking, please send me a message and I will adjust prices accordingly.

The buyer is responsible for any customs duties on international sales - these are not included in the shipping costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
Items are sold as seen, and I attempt to provide a complete view of the product with my photos. I reserve the right to refuse a refund or exchange, but if any problem arises I will endeavour to resolve it as soon as possible so that everyone is happy!
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS - if you have an idea yourself that you would like me to add to a garment then don't hesitate to contact me so that we can see if it is do-able. Also if you want to ensure the item's uniqueness then for a small extra fee I will guarantee that yours is THE only one that I make in the colourway you choose.
