Beautiful and practical reversible bonnet with acorn print on one side and stripes on the reverse. There is a matching blanket!
We love it because....
Pigeon have been around since 2004, starting as Organics for Kids. Their cotton comes from Turkey, where there is a very serious knowledge of organic growing and carefully controlled processing.
Until recently their entire baby range was made by a small, family-run factory in Nottingham. They had worked with them since they started and were very proud to be supporting the local textile sector and workers. However, in June 2013 the factory very sadly closed its doors. They have now started to work with three excellent alternatives. Though not UK-based, they all manufacture GOTS compliant clothes, which ensures good social as well as environmental standards (GOTS = Global Organic Textile Standard is a globally agreed standard to which the main national certification bodies have signed up. It not only covers environmental factors, but also social considerations by ensuring that all processors and manufacturers meet the minimum social criteria of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), covering employment practices, working conditions, pay, collective bargaining, and the banning of child labour). Their company ethos remains the same, as does their commitment to the finest quality.
