Natural hand-dyed, unique baby essentials made from sustainable organic cotton, produced with social impact in the Amsterdam-based BORO*ATELIER!
BORO is a Japanese philosophical concept: “use everything and waste nothing!”
Did you know that textile dyeing constitutes the most toxic part of the textile industry!?
These toxic substances severely contaminate the environment and are absorbed by the skin, our largest organ. Baby skin is porous, sensitive and four to five times thinner than the skin of an adult and therefore absorbs even more.
Luckily, BORO*MINI offers the solution by dyeing textile in a unique, safe way that isn’t toxic and consumes less water to boot! This natural dyeing process offers a sustainable and safe alternative to synthetic dyes because the resources are extracted from plants, roots and minerals, which means they are biodegradable.
Just what a sensitive baby skin needs, plus it allows the baby to suck on it safely, because YES, babies will put anything in their mouths!
These remarkable natural dyes create a vivid and safe colour pallet that can be washed at 40 degrees! Quite handy when you’ve got a baby (-;
The safe-to-suck baby essentials by BORO*MINI are hand-crafted at the BORO*MINI workshop in Amsterdam. The BORO*WORKSHOP is a social production workshop offering special education to long-term job seekers and/or asylum status holders. Socially responsible production aimed at guiding participants towards a paid job!
