Inspiring thoughtful living, through thoughtful clothing

A bit about us:

Ethical Infant was born out of a desire to change the messaging in baby clothing. I'm sure that you've seen it - you walk into a store, and instantly you are assalted by the cliché, unfortunate, and often times offensive messages plastered all over the baby clothes. Of course the boys clothes are all blue, and the girls are all pink (ugh) and they say respectively "Little tough guy", "Bad to the bone" , or "Future All-star" for the boy selections. Conversely, the girls clothing reads "Too cute to follow the rules", "Diva in training", or "Born to Shop" - really? Eek.

It is truly interesting how much a child's clothing (especially when they are of a non-verbal age), influences the interactions that they have with those around them. As a mom, I am determined to change the conversations that people are having with my kids. Clothing so often, and so unfortunately perpetuates heteronormative and hyper-sexualized messages, along with promoting ableism, and materialism. What about kindness? What if my kids don't fit into societal expectations? What if, oh no, they have a disability, that makes being a "future All-star" impossible (please insert sarcasm here). No more "Oh, you're so pretty. Are you a little diva?" or "hey little tough guy, you're such a bruiser". Not for this mama.


About our products:

After the birth of my youngest, I enlisted the help of my brother, an amazing artist, to create beautiful hand drawn art, that would be partnered with lovely words from inspiring people, to put onto baby clothing. Our first line includes quotes from Gandhi, John Muir, and Maya Angelou.

We knew that it was important to create a beautiful product from beginning to end, and as we began to look into garment purchasing we were struck by the rampant exploitation (of both the environment and workers) that takes place at every level of production. So, after much searching, we were fortunate enough to partner up with the HAE NOW company. They are amazing. http://www.haenow.com/cart/ourmill.php They offer 100% organic cotton clothing blanks that are Fair Trade certified. All of their farmers and workers are paid a living wage, have health care, access to educational opportunities for themselves and their children, receive meal vouchers, have transportation share options, and have returned to safe and sustainable production practices (I could go on about this company all day - they rock).

In addition the items that we create, we understand that we must play a larger role in the sustainable fashion community. Lets face it, a land fill full or organic cotton, is still a full land fill. This coming winter, will be hosting small bay area clothing swap events, so that folks can get more life out of their garments. Additionally, when our website launches (hoping it will be complete soon…), we will have links to organic garment care, and videos on how to up-cycle children's clothes - adding in a onesie extender, repairing tears, and converting winter items into summer items.
