We’re authorized by the universities and teams we represent to utilize their logos, namesakes, and trademarks.

What makes bamboo clothing perfect for children?

Bamboo clothing is perfect for children due to its softness and smoothness, making it gentle on sensitive skin and reducing the risk of irritation and allergies. It is naturally hypoallergenic, highly breathable with excellent moisture-wicking properties, and helps regulate body temperature. Bamboo also contains natural antibacterial and antimicrobial agents, reducing bacteria and odors, and provides natural UV protection. Its durability ensures it withstands frequent washing and wear, making it a practical choice for active children.

Should I choose a pajama set or a zippered onesie?

Choosing between a pajama set and a zippered onesie for your baby or toddler depends on ease of use, comfort, mobility, temperature regulation, and growth flexibility. Zippered onesies offer quick diaper changes and keep babies snug and covered throughout the night, making them ideal for cooler climates. Pajama sets provide greater freedom of movement for active toddlers and can be better for warmer environments with mix-and-match layering options. While onesies ensure complete coverage, pajama sets offer sizing flexibility. Both options have their benefits, so consider your child's needs and preferences.

How should I care for the bamboo clothing to maintain its quality?

To maintain the quality of bamboo clothing, wash it in cold or warm water on a gentle cycle using mild, eco-friendly detergents without bleach or fabric softeners. Air dry the clothing whenever possible, or use a low heat setting if using a dryer. Avoid excessive heat when ironing, and if needed, use a low setting with a cloth between the iron and the fabric. Handle the clothing gently to prevent stretching, and pre-treat stains with mild detergent or water and white vinegar. Following these guidelines will keep your bamboo clothing soft, durable, and comfortable.
