By embracing this process rather than sacrificing it for a superficially perfect product, together we are making a difference to our environment, and our children's wellbeing. For the above reasons we advise you to use environmentally friendly detergents when washing our items, and keep them clear of harsh chemicals/detergents as they will remove colourfastness.
Our textiles for carriers and accessories are ORGANIC and grown with plants free of pesticides or genetic modification protecting the environment, our farmers and your children. Our clothing is all 100% cotton.
The standard chemical dyeing process uses over 8000 different chemicals in its various stages. Millions of children in the US receive up to 35% of their estimated lifetime dose of some carcinogenic pesticides by age five through food, contaminated drinking water, household use, and pesticide drift.
Not so at Yoli and Otis. We dye our carrier and accessory fabrics using only plants & herbs, renowned for their medicinal values. All waste water and solids are then recycled back into the production process.
