We are two mums who started our company Baby Play Limited in May 2014 in London. At the time were looking for what was missing on the market and for things we wanted to improve for our little ones. We wanted to use our experience as mums to help others, as we know that being a mum is the most wonderful thing in the world, but can also be challenging at times.
Currently our main products are children's clothes made from 70% bamboo and 30% cotton. Our range of clothes go under the trademark bamboo kidz. Bamboo is an extremely soft, but also a sustainable and natural material, so we look at this as a win-win situation. Better for the environment - luxuriously soft clothes. Some of the other benefits of using bamboo is that it is wrinkle resistant, dries quickly, it is also naturally breathable and odour resistant. Furthermore, it has a UV protection of 50+, so perfect for summer days or if you go on holiday but still want to keep your baby covered. Bamboo clothing is currently growing rapidly on the Scandinavian and Australian markets.
In the past, clothes out of bamboo have always been very expensive and this is a trend we really want to break and make it available to everybody as we strongly believe that every parent and child deserves the best.
As we are two mums ourselves we have learnt (sometimes the hard way) what works and what does not. Therefore we have put a lot of thought behind our clothes. We have chosen the wrap around style, not only because it looks really good, but also because it is so incredibly easy to dress your baby this way. We have also added an additional layer of fabric on our trousers for the crawling ages, so that it will be softer for the baby's knees as they explore the world.
In addition to our baby clothes range, we have come up with a brand new type of play mat for babies and young children and we are looking to launch this product very soon.
