There was a time when eco-friendly products meant unfashionable clothes, scratchy hemp sacks and a holier-than-thou attitude – but not any more! And leading the charge for this new fantastic eco-chic lifestyle is Nuumi.
Nuumi was created by two sisters who believe that eco-friendly lifestyle products could both look and feel fantastic – and about time too! All their items are made from sustainable natural materials, focusing on ultra-soft organic bamboo, whilst their chic and classic designs bring a touch of luxe to their eco-credentials and prove it doesn’t take much to make a difference.
In case you’re wondering why bamboo, trust us, these ladies have done their research and it certainly isn’t just panda food fodder! Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, doesn’t need pesticides or fertilisers to grow, or require re-planting or crop rotation to sustain itself – making it one of the most eco-friendly organic fabrics around. Not only that, but fabric made from bamboo is luxuriously soft and gentle to the touch, making it perfect for clothing and linens; it’s also hypoallergenic, antibacterial, thermal-regulating, UV protecting and stays drier than cotton.
At Sassy Mama, we especially love their Nuumi Baby clothes range; designed by mothers and for mothers to be as fuss-free, versatile and easy-to-put-on as possible. Their onesies and sleepers are all kimono-style, which is great for babies who don’t like to put on (or take off) clothes over their heads. The specially chosen 70% bamboo, 30% organic cotton blend fabric feels super-soft against sensitive baby skin and is especially great for HK as the breathability of the bamboo makes it thermal-regulating which means your baby remains cool even in our hot and humid climate and on the flip side it keeps them warm in the winter. Featuring beautiful but modern designs in a range of classic colours, this unisex collection of stylish and comfy clothing is perfectly suited to little ‘uns both about town or at home!
You can shop their entire range – which also includes baby sleeping bags, accessories and 100% bamboo bath and hand towels (and uber-cute hooded towels for bubba!), plus a soon-to-launch men’s and women’s range – on their website www.Nuumi.com. You can also keep up with all their news on their Facebook page www.Facebook.com/NuumiCollection.
