If you’ve been keeping up with the blog or reading the newsletter, you’ve probably already heard that I’m going to be stocking a selection of stunning products by ‘From Babies with Love’, so you can buy organic baby clothes and ethically produced toys and gifts (I’ve nearly finished getting all the products loaded up and ready for you to buy - it’s a big job!). So, I thought I’d write a quick blog post to tell you a little bit about what they do that makes them really special.
Buy organic baby clothes and ethically produced toys & gifts and make a difference!
I’ve been wanting to expand the variety of baby products on offer here at Snug for a while now, but there is only so much that this one-woman-show can make! When I heard about From Babies with Love, I didn’t need to think about whether they were a good fit or not for very long. Not only do their products complement my knitted designs beautifully, but also I can now offer you a more complete shopping experience by offering a wider selection of items to buy for your little ones and also to give as gifts.
The best bit about these gorgeous products? EVERY PENNY of profit goes to help vulnerable children around the world to have a better start in life.
Who are From Babies with Love?
From Babies with Love is a women-led social enterprise and a registered charity. Their vision is for all children to have a fair start in life, no matter where they are born or the circumstances surrounding them. Products include beautiful, cute organic baby clothes with modern, gender-neutral designs; blankets; soft toys and wooden toys; nursery decor prints; door hangers and greeting cards - and they work hard to produce their designs ethically and sustainably.
They are a company who are rapidly gaining well-deserved recognition, despite being a relatively new business. Some of this recognition includes:
- Shortlisted for 2017 Social Enterprise UK Awards in the Consumer Facing category
- Nominated for the Excellence in Diversity ‘Best Diversity Resource Award 2017’
- Won gold at the Junior Design Awards for their wooden stacking cube toys (pictured below), which I am stocking
They have also been featured in some great publications, here’s just a few:
How does buying Organic Baby Clothes help vulnerable children?
A huge number of babies and children around the world are orphaned and abandoned due to famine, disease, poverty or war. Profits from the sale of From Babies with Love’s stunning, design-led products allow the charity to support children in SOS Children’s Villages worldwide. Here, the children are cared for by SOS Mothers and live in homes within the village alongside their SOS brothers and sisters. I’ll be writing more about these amazing places and people soon.
So what do you think?
I’m thrilled to be offering you such charming designs for your babies and to be supporting such a worthwhile cause. What could be more special than buying beautiful products for the little people in your life whilst knowing that each purchase will make a difference to vulnerable children around the world who don’t have anyone to give them clothes or love.
Keep an eye on Snug’s social media for when the products are available to purchase or sign up to the newsletter so that you don’t miss out.
