What are your products made out of?
At Gaia Baby Goods, we use 100% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton. This is the safest material for your little one's delicate skin with no harmful chemicals, and the safest for our planet with no pollution to our air, water, and soil while still maintaining maximum comfort and breathability. Learn more about our strict guidelines here.
Why don't you sell bamboo clothing?
We'll admit, viscose and/or rayon blends from bamboo sure are soft. But the bottom line is, they're not safe for your baby or for our planet. The process of turning the raw material of bamboo into the soft buttery fabric of viscose/rayon used in clothing requires an intensive chemical process which pollutes our air, water, and soil. Not to mention, those chemicals are then sitting on and being absorbed into your baby's delicate skin. We will always use the safest materials for your baby and for our planet. That's our priority.
Where are your products manufactured?
Our items are designed in New England, USA and sustainably and ethically crafted in India or China unless otherwise noted in the description. All graphic tees and pullovers are hand pressed at our small shop in New Hampshire, USA. We only partner with socially, economically, and environmentally responsible manufactures to ensure employees have safe working conditions, sustainable livelihoods, environmental protection, and community development funds.
How does your sizing run?
Our garments run on the larger size with a little extra length to grow with your child. Please reference our sizing guide before placing an order to ensure proper fit. Since our fabric is 100% organic cotton, garments may shrink in the wash if not cared for properly. If you are between sizes, we recommend sizing up. Please reach out to us if you have any questions on size or need specific measurements.
Do you use any flame retardants or other chemicals?
Absolutely not! Our top priority is the safety of your baby, and our planet. Our products are tested and certified free of harmful chemicals in accordance with OEKO-TEX guidelines. Learn more about our strict guidelines here.
How should I care for my Gaia Baby Goods?
Wash in cold water on gentle cycle with like colors. To keep your garment nontoxic, and to help protect our environment, we recommend using a natural free and clear laundry detergent. Dry on low heat or hang dry. We recommend using wool dryer balls as a nontoxic, ecofriendly alternative to dryer sheets.
Do you sell adult clothing?
