True to the brand's essence where simplicity and comfort for the little ones are the most important, our limited edition products are designed and made in India. Every product is inspired by an original read-aloud poem that speaks of the spontaneity of childhood and our cultural values. This gender-neutral gift set, part of our Zoo Treat poem collection comes packed in a reusable muslin bag with an interactive game tag, ready for gifting. It contains:
1 x head pillow: Preserving ancient Indian customs, our head pillow is made in the traditional style with mustard seeds filling. It will give perfect comfort and contour to your baby's head. Mustard seeds give bio-energy and we believe, wards off the evil eye. Mustard is also known to keep colds away due to its natural warming properties.
1 x teether: This tiger shaped teether is ergonomically designed for easy grip by babies.
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.
These products are designed by the founder and made in various parts of rural and urban India by passionate manufacturers who share our ideals. They work with sustainable and artisanal textile crafts of India. All the cuddles and teethers are embroidered and stuffed by hand by traditional women artisans in tribal Tamil Nadu or in Ahmedabad.
Their production partners either follow fair trade principles laid down by the World Fair Trade Organisation or individually decide their own wages based on the time and the level of expertise required.
