“At Pigeon, we don’t want to grow huge, we just want to do what we love doing, working with people we like, in a way that has a positive impact wherever possible.”

I’m back with another post regarding one of my favourite kids wear clothing brands Pigeon Organics. I think it’s incredibly important to mention their impressive stance when it comes to the environment and helping organic farming families. As a parent of a little boy who is growing fast and out of his clothes very quickly it’s a constant job keeping his wardrobe current and some what stylish. I was lucky enough to select some items from the new Spring Summer collection worth checking out for your little bambinos!
Over the past year I’ve found the collections are colourful and contemporary. The fun designs are eye catching and I just love the material which holds its shape wash after wash. It’s clear to see great attention has been paid to the finished product which makes for a high quality range, comfortable to wear and practical to care for. I had a peak at the girls dresses which are adorable!
Jay loves the new additions to his wardrobe. We are both fans of the colours and I know he will get a lot of wear out of the items. I’ve got my eye on a few more pieces as I start to build his summer clothing line! he’s at an age where he tells me what he likes and doesn’t like and taking more of an interest in what he wears. It will be interesting to see how he views fashion as he gets older.
So for bodysuits, bibs, hats, blankets all suitable for sensitive skin, Pigeon Organics is GOTS certified company, choosing organic cotton for quality products that are softer, kind to skin, better for the environment and the people that make them.
Simple T-shirt with cheeky print on front and back.
Classic summer shorts in lightweight canvas.
Canvas Trousers £29.90 in Delft Blue
Easy pull-up canvas trousers with jersey rib waistband.
Pigeon Organics has a gorgeous range for young children and I highly recommend purchasing organic cotton. There are so many retailers these days which don’t have the same ethos and I reckon there are a lot of people who do want to support ethical clothing brands.
You may be interested to know that Organic Cotton production involves replacing the synthetic pesticides and fertilisers with natural ones, then using crop rotation and mixed planting. This means less exposure to chemicals for the farmers and in the environment. Any ‘seconds’ eg. garments with small printing faults and end of season stock is donated to charities working with vulnerable babies and children. I love that and glad to see a brand make every effort to help where they can.
