Whitewater Kids works with Organic cotton to make clothes for babies because it is grown without the use of genetically modified seeds, without the use of toxic fertilizers and pesticides. And since it is not readily available in large quantities, we thought of using it judiciously for an ideal purpose – for making baby products. As you know, a baby’s skin is more absorbent than an adult’s.
Also, the colour used by them is either herbal or natural dyes for our earthy palette. Herbal dyes are derived from herbs found in nature such as manjistha or madder, haldi or turmeric and indigo to name a few. The cloth is dyed such that the medicinal properties of each of these plants is retained in the cloth. They include fruit and vegetable wastes like the rind of pomegranate and onion skins. Our natural dye collection showcases the skills of traditional Ajrakh artisans in India. Ajrakh is a resist block printing technique, traditionally known for its geometric patterns and labour intensive double-sided printing.
On the other hand, azo is a chemical compound that is carcinogenic and banned by many countries in the world. For our bright hues, we use azo-free dyes.
