Our organic cotton is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). This certification ensures the textiles are grown organically, manufactured without harmful chemicals and produced in a fair working environment. Our toys are manufactured in a GOTS-certified factory and are made with organic cotton inside and out.
But what’s the big deal with organic cotton?
Organic cotton is better quality
Conventional cotton growers use harvesting machines to pick cotton. The machines mix the seeds and oil with the cotton. Later, harsh chemical cleansers are used to separate them. Not only does this introduce unnecessary chemicals, but it damages the fabric.
Organic cotton is handpicked, so it’s cleaner and stronger. It’s only washed in mild, natural cleansers. Instead of using heavy metal dyes, when it comes time to color the cotton, only low-impact dyes and natural colorants (like clay).
Organic cotton is better for the environment
It’s no secret that conventional farming takes a toll on the planet. Overuse of pesticides, insecticides and herbicides is leaving these chemicals in our water supplies, stunting the growth of plants (and in turn, animals) miles away from the farms.
But farming is a business. If we demand more organic cotton, farmers will switch to healthier farming. The more people who refuse to buy conventionally farmed cotton, the sooner mass farmers will stop polluting.
Organic cotton is healthier for you
Over the years we have become aware of the damaging effects that dangerous toxins like pesticides have on our bodies. That’s what started the whole organic food trend. But if we aren’t willing to eat harsh chemicals, we shouldn’t want them touching our bodies either.
Organic cotton can be worn by people with chemical sensibilities and allergies. They come with low impact dyes that aren’t made from heavy medals, so you can’t be exposed to their dangers.
Which organic cotton products to buy?
You should pick up the items that give you the most benefit for your money. Buy organic cotton products for anything you keep close to your skin, like T-shirts, mattresses, bedding, sleepwear, and of course… anything for the baby.

As a mother, Jennifer understands the importance of offering nothing by the best for baby. Motivated by teeth marks on her children’s cribs, she decided to design a teething rail cover after trying products that didn’t measure up when it came to quality or style. What she found out made her even more concerned about children’s safety and health: The toxic chemicals used in the production of synthetic materials have been linked to birth defects, reproductive disorders, and weakened immune systems.
She asked herself, “What if I could revolutionize the way parents decorated their crib with a safe and stylish teething rail cover that could be placed on the crib from day one?” Babee Talk® launched in 2014 with organic bedding and accessories. Chew-friendly, drool-friendly, and organic inside and out, her products ensure a healthy start in life for babies.
She only offers products that she would provide for her own children. She hopes moms and dads will start to talk about the importance of choosing safe, healthy, eco-friendly products, especially for babies.
