4 - Handmade baby clothes are better for the environment
A large number of synthetic clothes are made from textiles containing or made from plastic - like nylon or polyester. When you wash these plastic clothes, they shed microplastics that are washed into water sources. And water treatment plants don’t have filters to stop them.
A 2020 study co-authored by scientists at Duke University, North Carolina estimates that in some areas 90% of microplastics are created from water pumped out of washing machines. These are now causing damage to fish at the tissue and cellular level.

6 - Handmade baby clothes keep tradition alive, support genuine innovation
Traditional art and craft industries are on the decline. Modern technology allows big, multinational retailers to pump out the same drab designs on a massive scale.

Handcrafted baby clothes are helping to keep traditional industries alive. And independent designers bring a unique and fresh style to fashion - often inspired by their own experiences. By buying handmade, you keep bringing fresh, creative design into the world.
