Children's Clothing Made With Heritage Textile

By Guy Lobdell

No one understands the importance of selecting children's clothing that is stylish and matched to their child's unique personality, and has been manufactured under ethical fair trade practices, better than parents. Using heritage textiles is a concept that many people have not yet been introduced to. What it means is that fabrics are created through traditional ancient techniques for hand weaving and dying the cloth to give apparel such a wonderful effect.

The most obvious benefit of using heritage textile with clothing is that each piece is unique. Since dying methods such as ikat and kalamkari are done by hand, families get to enjoy knowing that anything that they put on their child is truly one-of-a-kind. The special dying processes are also long-lasting, and they use natural dye materials that reduce the risk of triggering allergies.

Kids who wear these outfits can have the benefit of learning that it is possible to have a beautiful wardrobe that preserves traditional arts and promotes ethical practices. It helps them understand caring for the environment through using sustainable and organic materials.

The benefits of heritage textiles go beyond just the surface patterns. The fabrics used for the special dying and weaving processes are made from organic cotton that is free from many of the chemicals that are used to create lesser quality textiles. Your family can also rest assured that heritage textiles are made using fair trade practices. This means that every garment your child wears was never sewn or dyed by another child.

Another aspect of fair trade is that each step in the manufacturing process - beginning with the planting, growing, and collection of cotton to the artisans applying their beautiful skills - is designed to support local communities in the country of production. Every worker is compensated at fair wages and the company emphasizes the use of sustainable materials.

It is important to select a child's garments carefully. Although cheaper options are presented, opting for one that promotes traditional artisans, sustainability, and fair work ethics, helps one do their part to make a productive change in the world.
