a change of season…
a change of clothes…

At Finn + Emma, we love this time of year.  Here in the Northeast (and perhaps where you live too), nature is beginning her annual transformation.  The nights are getting cooler, the leaves are changing colors—and squirrels are scampering around in preparation for winter. Perhaps you can relate to these bushy-tailed busybodies as you make your own transition to heartier meals and cozier wardrobes for you and your little one.  If you haven’t already, now is the time to make sure your child is equipped with organic baby clothes for autumn and winter.

Organic baby clothes Make The Perfect Organic Baby Gifts.

In this day and age, we hear a lot about organic foods and how important they are, especially for children.  By avoiding pesticides and less-than-pure ingredients, you do your kids and their health a huge favor. By the same token, organic baby clothes and organic baby gifts are important for the comfort and well being of your newest addition—or those of your friends and family.  But what does it mean when the “organic” label is applied to clothing and gifts?  As with food crops, organic cotton is grown using materials and techniques that do not utilize toxic pesticides or artificial fertilizers; these practices are gentler on the environment and on customers who come in contact with the finished product.  This chart...

But did you know that most clothing is produced with synthetic dyes and is treated with toxic chemicals in order to provide wrinkle resistance, stain resistance, fade resistance, static cling resistance?
