Oftentimes bedding for our kids contains synthetic fibers, chemicals and toxins. This can cause a host of problems that is harmful to immature immune systems as well as effect children that have allergies or sensitive skin. Two Canadian moms, Jillian Hachlaf and Wendy Godfrey, decided to create the line after their own children suffered from various ailments like asthma, eczema and bronchiolitis, which caused them to better understand their children'??s surroundings.
Hachlaf had an '??aha moment'?? when she realized that '??products should care for others and our planet.'? They created ty and lumi organics (named after their children) in order to do their part to help the environment while also providing a product that is chic, stylish and safe for babies and children.
I previewed the line at a showroom in NYC and responded to the original and modern designs ranging from the adorable Snug as a Ladybug (available in blue or pink) and Sleeping Green (green paisley) prints as well as the bright and floral Little Bit of Whimsy print and the sophisticated Moo Moo design (checkered prints with vivid colors). The colors are designs were so unique and gorgeous that it felt like the company was really in-touch with the modern family. At the preview, I saw everything from their line of sleep sacks (available up to 24 months), soft blankets, fitted crib sheets fitted changing tables, burp cloths, and various sets that include all the essentials parents need. Expect rich colors like mocha, fuchsia, baby pink, and aqua '?? no boring drab colors that makes their bedding fun for both kids and their parents.
Products by ty and lumi are made with organic cotton twill, organic cotton fleece, soy or other eco-materials. Using such natural ingredients is evident in the texture of the product line. The bedding was very silky and cozy that ty and lumi also mentioned doesn'??t lose its shape as easily after washing since no chemicals are used '?? allowing it to retain its durability and have a longer life.
Thanks to ty and lumi, parents no longer have to compromise style to get a safe, and environmentally friendly bedding or as there mission statement sums it up, they create '??fabrics that are safer, cuter, and greener.'?
