Sustainable and eco-conscious brands

#1 The Little Green Sheep

You may feel like the list of essential items for your little one is forever growing. From baskets to muslin cloths and baby grows and prams, it’s good to have a brand you know you can rely on for quality long lasting products that won’t let you down. That’s where The Little Green Sheep excels, using only natural and organic materials to create beautiful baby products free from any signs of chemicals or synthetic materials. All bedding is crafted from luxury organic linen and organic cotton blend without the use of any pesticides. All wooden baby gyms are made from sustainably sourced wood and hand oiled for a natural finish.

#2 Faithful the Brand

Bringing us feminine shapes and vintage prints, Faithfull the Brand‘s lust-worthy dresses, tops and skirts are inspired by the rare prints and fabrics found while founders Sarah and Helle were travelling. Designed for the modern day globe trotter, designs are made to make the wearer feel comfortably chic and confident both on their travels and at home. Based in Bali, the brand partners with local factories who hand-make all garments rather than opting to mass produce collections.
