Frugi Organic Clothing for Babies & Kids

Frugi’s clothes are extremely fun and kids love to wear them!

Frugi clothing is made from organic cotton, meaning they are kind to the planet and to your child’s skin. The organic materials that they use are very durable, wash well and usually last longer than normal cottons. Organic cotton means they’re free from chemicals, are much more sustainable to the planet and also address ethical labour concerns for the farmers.

So how did it all begin?  Well, in 2004 the owners of Frugi had their first baby. Wanting to be as green as they could they decided to use washable cloth nappies. As soon as they started using them they realised that normal clothes just didn’t fit well over big cloth nappy bottoms, so they decided to make their own baby clothes that had enough room for washable nappies. This was how their business started and they called it Cut4Cloth.  All of their clothes were made from ethically manufactured organic cotton and were a huge hit with parents across the planet.

With the success of Cut4Cloth they decided to extend the range and make organic kids clothes, and in 2008 they changed the name to Frugi, meaning ‘Fruits of the Earth’ in Latin.

Frugi cater for kids up to age 8 for both boys and girls and their colourful clothing is perfect for the little cheeky monkeys in your life!

Take a look at our range of Frugi organic clothing and let us know what you think, we’d love to hear from you!

Little Joules Clothing Collection for Kids

At The Merrygoround, we have a wonderful collection of Little Joules clothing for Kids.  Joules clothing style is extremely eccentric and colourful, and looks to the countryside for inspiration.

Little Joules kids clothing

A collection of Little Joules Kids clothing all on sale at The Merrygoround

The Joules company started by Tom Joule over three decades ago when he decided to follow in his fathers footsteps and started selling country styled clothing at equestrian and outdoor events across England.

One rainy afternoon Tom realised that the country styled clothing on offer was rather dull and didn’t reflect the personality of colourful country folk.  To test this theory out Tom decided to design 100 pairs of bright pink wellies which sold faster than he could have imagined, they were very popular!  From that day on the Joules brand was born.

30 years on and Joules are still pationate about producing quality, colourful and eccentric clothing for men, women, boys, girls and babies.  Little Joules is loved by parents for their kids due to the durability and stylish bright prints on their clothing.

Each item of Little Joules clothing will certainly bring out the personality in your little one.  Have a browse through our collection and take advantage of our Economy delivery for only £2.00.

We also offer next day delivery, see our delivery rates.

Organic Kids Clothes

Organic Kids ClothingMany people are now looking a lot more closely at the clothes that they buy. What are they made from? Where are they made? How are they made? For the conscious minded of you, this means buying organic clothing.

Why should I buy organic kids clothing?

There are many reasons as to why parents are converting to buying organic clothing for their kids, and even themselves including being kinder to skin, much more sustainable to the planet as well as addressing ethical labour concerns for the farmers.

Most of our wardrobes are filled with conventional cotton, when this cotton is grown it is sprayed with pesticides. 10% of these pesticides fight off the bugs on the cotton plant whilst the rest is absorbed into the air, soil, plant, water and into our bodies. It’s a well known fact that pesticides are toxic chemicals and cause major harm not only to people but to the eco-system too.

This conventional cotton is subject to bleach, heavy metal dyes and formaldehyde resins in the manufacturing process. GM cotton also accounts for 75% of conventionally grown cotton.

Why is organic cotton better?

There are many reasons as to why organic cotton is better for you and the planet, but it basically eliminates all of the above negative factors. It practices safe and sustainable practices, natural fertilisers, free from toxic chemicals as well as ethical labour processes.

Organic standards are very strict, a cotton field must be pesticide free for a least 3 years to be certified as organic and they must meet the International organic standards.

How will organic benefit my kids?

As you know babies and children’s skin is extremely delicate and in the first few months it is very absorbent too, making it more prone to allergic and irritant reactions from chemicals. Exposure to bleaches and chemicals can cause harm by irritating the skin and can also cause dermatitis. Sometimes we forget just how pure our children’s bodies are.

Organic clothing used to be dull and boring, but not any more!

Frugi Baby Organic Kids ClothingHundreds of designers are realizing the importance in using organic cotton and are now making stunning bright and modern organic clothing just for your kids.

One of the biggest concerns that parents have about buying organic clothing is that it will cost a lot more. In most cases there isn’t actually much difference and if it is a little more then it is due to it not being economically possible to make it a cheaper outfit whilst using good materials, non toxic dyes, pay laborers a livable wage as well as decent working conditions.

Organic clothing for your kids will give you peace of mind.

If you don’t already buy organic, don’t go mad and buy your child a whole new wardbrobe, just buy a few pieces at a time. Combine it with their existing clothes and gradually buy more organic pieces, you’ll be sure to see a difference.

The Merrygoround obviously see the importance in organic clothing but we also know that this just isn’t feasible for some parents. We sell both organic and non-organic designer children’s clothing so that you can make the choice yourself. We are in the process of building up our organic clothing collection and some of our current brands that use organic cotton are listed below:

Lilly & Sid
Hatley kids
Frugi
Absorba

Happy shopping!
