Gigil is a new baby clothing brand that creates and sells an adorable range of organic clothes for a child’s first year, but, we have a twist. Not only are all of our clothing modern, stylish and cute; it is all organic.
So, what exactly is organic clothing?
Organic clothing is produced with raw materials that are entirely free from the use of chemical fertilisers, pesticides and a host of other artificial chemicals that we at Gigil believe have no business being anywhere near a newborn baby. As founders of this new business, as well as new parents ourselves, we have pledged to keep our clothing entirely organic.
So, why is organic clothing better for your baby?
Did you know that 11% of global pesticide sales are used on cotton?
Organic clothing has many benefits when compared with non-organic clothing, and these benefits are even more pertinent in the context of newborn children.
Babies have extremely delicate skin, which is considerably thinner and more porous than that of adults, which means it absorbs things that it comes into contact with much more easily. We know that you would not dream of rubbing harsh chemicals on your baby’s skin, so why would you choose to put chemicals and pesticides on clothing that is rubbing against your baby’s skin? Our choice to create organic clothing has this at the forefront of its thinking.
We believe that the world is already full of enough chemicals and artificial products that we will all inevitably come into contact with at some stage, however, we believe that for a new born baby in 2019, we should be avoiding this at all costs, as well as teaching and nurturing our children to understand the value of our health, and also the benefits of maintaining a sustainable planet, that our little ones can continue to enjoy.
So, is organic clothing better for our planet?
Yes, organic clothing is better for our planet. This is because when cotton is grown organically, and thus without the presence of pesticides, insecticides and fertilisers, this means the ground it is grown on, the water it is grown close to, and the farmers that come into contact with it, can all exist without the interference and contamination of the aforementioned chemicals. We also believe that teaching our babies the importance of maintaining a healthy body, continuing to help our planet, and taking pride in themselves and their image is of the utmost importance in the nurturing of the next generation.
Organic cotton is also up to ten times more durable than conventional cotton, which means that with all the spill and washes your Gigil product will go through, the quality and integrity of the product will be maintained.
