LittleLeaf is a family-run business based in Hampshire. With four children of our own, we know how important it is that the fabric you’re putting next to your baby’s skin – and your own – is the kindest and softest it can be. Our business is based on solid values: great products with good design, made ethically and sustainably, without doing harm to others or our planet in the process. This is why we only use GOTS-certified organic cotton. To put it simply, we’re on a mission to provide the finest quality organic cotton, fairly made and fairly priced.
The best kind of cotton
LittleLeaf is all about eco fabric. In certified organic cotton, we discovered the purest and best cotton currently available. It’s cotton as it used to be, when grandparents could hand down cotton bedlinen and baby clothes to the next generation, because it was of such good quality and lasted many decades. Conventional, non-organic cotton is not like this anymore, because the fibres have been broken down by all the pesticide and chemical treatment it undergoes. You only have to run your hand over our bedding to know it’s really fine quality. Some customers have said they can see its quality before they’ve even felt it! Certified organic cotton is better for you, better for the workers who produce it, and better for the environment in general.
Best for Sustainability
By buying organic cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), you are also helping to ensure that people involved in the growing of organic cotton and the making of our clothes are treated fairly through all the stages, from fibre to finished product. Simply put, organic cotton is grown with consideration for the environment and the people who produce it. It’s the sustainable choice, being less intensively farmed so allowing food and other crops to be grown alongside it. Plus, far less water is used to grow it.
Organic & Ethical
GOTS and Soil Association certification is the best there is – it’s the surest way to guarantee that the cotton is genuinely “organic”, since it applies the strictest rules right through every stage of production, right back to the field where the cotton is grown. The social and welfare standards are also second to none. Always look for the GOTS symbol, which ensures all these environmental and social standards have been met.
Better By Design
Our clothes and blankets come in our very own bright, unique designs, which will hopefully put a smile on your face. Our baby and toddler designs suit both girls and boys. As parents of a son and daughters, we like the idea of baby clothes that suit both. There’s also a practical gain from choosing unisex designs for your baby clothes, as they can be passed on from brother to sister (recycling at its best!) and so will save you money in the long-term. As organic cotton has a reputation for being incredibly durable, retaining its quality wash after wash (and even getting softer the more it’s washed), it should see you through baby number one, two, three and more!
We’re on a mission to replace everything in our homes that’s made from cotton, with the best GOTS certified organic cotton (eventually!). We’re gradually expanding our range, which now includes pyjamas for all ages, towels, fabric pots, hankies and bathrobes. Our lovely loyal customers guide us as to what they’d like to see next. Style and practicality are always at the forefront of our designs, so our gorgeous PJs and robes are classically styled and beautifully finished with piping and useful pockets.
We have tried to follow this ethos right through all stages of our business, and so have sourced and use 100% recycled paper packaging and stationery. Even the wrapping paper we use for gift wrapping – now in 7 original designs – is made from 100% recycled paper and is uncoated, printed using vegetable oil-based inks and is fully recyclable. Similarly, the raffia ribbon used for gift wrapping is compostable and our wonderful bedding sets are packed in a handwoven useful shoulder bag.
