By now, you all know that I am passionate about eco-friendly products for every member of the family...Even the littlest ones! That's why when I discovered Kicky Pants and their amazing line of Bamboo clothing, (they have cotton, too!) I knew I just had to try their garments out on my children. For one, Bamboo is probably my favorite material ever. Not only is Bamboo incredibly soft and luxurious feeling, it is also completely sustainable, and grows wild without the aid of pesticides or fertilizers. This is wonderful for the environment, as these growing "aids" often contain harsh chemicals that not only affect the products that are made from the crops, but it also affects the water table, poisons animals, and can literally effect the entire food chain. Not to mention, Bamboo garments hold up better and longer than conventional cotton clothing. Since there are no harsh chemicals used in manufacturing this fabric, garments made from it truly are made to last and look new longer. Now that's something I can feel good about!
So who's behind Kicky Pants? Well, I actually LOVE the story of how this company was born, since it's something I can relate to. Kicky Pants was founded by Erin Cloke, who had a unique vision for children's clothing and other goods while pregnant and on bedrest with her youngest son. (FYI: I started blogging when I was pregnant and on bedrest with my youngest, Xander.) Ms. Cloke envisioned fun, beautiful designs and when she couldn't find similar products in retail stores, she decided to make them herself. Her early creations became the prototypes for what is now a successful line of gorgeous clothing! So successful that her devoted and loving husband decided to resign from his job to help her in her endeavors. I love family owned businesses, and Kicky Pants is the perfect example of why. Their products are made with love, and it is evident in the superior quality of their designs.
I was fortunate enough to receive two great items from Kicky Pants for review. One for each baby! I received the Print Footie in Pond Seaweed for Xander, as seen in the above photo, and a fun twirly dress in green for Sophie. When these items arrived, I was instantly impressed by the expert construction of these garments, and by their simple yet elegant appearance.
Take a look at these great items!
I cannot say enough good things about the quality of these items. There were no crooked seams or loose threads, and the attention to detail was amazing. Not only are these items made of super-soft Bamboo that is very comfortable against my babies' delicate skin, they are absolutely adorable as well! And let's face it, when it comes to our children, cute matters. Kicky Pants definitely covers this aspect with ease!
I loved the graceful, simple design of the Print Footies. These great PJ's are a soft, muted blue with a dark green seaweed design on them. These footies come with little paws to keep hands warm and protect faces from scratching. The inside of the foot is lined with a super soft fleece to keep baby's feet warm, and the bottom of the foot is embroidered to avoid slipping. And I can rest assured that Xander can sleep in comfort wearing these, since Bamboo naturally keeps baby cooler and drier than traditional cottons due to its superior absorbent properties.
I also adored the Twirly Dress. This gorgeous little number is SO Sophie, and captures her playful, feminine personality quite well. The lime green is bright and cheerful, which makes it perfect for summer time! I absolutely love the ruffled hem found on the skirt, sleeves, and bodice of this cute little dress. I also really like the tiered design that allows plenty of room to run, jump, play and twirl! This dress is so fun, and has definitely become a favorite in Sophie's wardrobe.
Overall, I really love Kicky Pants. This family owned business offers items that are eco-friendly, durable, and made with active children in mind. Kids can jump, play, and just be kids in these wonderful garments, since they are so incredibly comfortable. Not to mention, these are some of the cutest clothes around! I will definitely be adding more of these garments to my babies' wardrobes.
