About Merino Baby Clothes
Babies under 12 months have difficulty regulating their own body temperature, even when it’s warm. When baby’s temperature is regulated and protected from extremes, he/she will be more relaxed, gain weight and sleep longer. Fine, soft Merino performs this function better than any other fibre! Each Merino fibre actively regulates temperature, protecting baby from extremes, keeping them warm when it is cold and cool when its hot. Merino also regulates humidity – absorbing moisture and allow it to evaporate into the air, keeping baby dry and comfortable.
Merino wool is a natural resource that is sustainable, biodegradable and totally renewable.
Gentle machine wash with a wool detergent. Warm iron. Do not bleach. Dry cleanable.
Babu began in 2002 after Ali, its founder, was not able to find the right type of baby bedding fabric she wanted for her baby Jack - nicknamed 'Babu'. Thousands of sheet sets, hooded baby towels, newborn blankets and mini merino wool hoodies later, Ali is still travelling the world, designing, sourcing, manufacturing and selling her coveted Babu products.
With a background in wound-care nursing, Ali is a stickler for what can and can’t touch a baby’s skin. Natural fibres like organic cotton and merino wool are so important to her for comfort and functionality.
Ali pays attention to the small stuff. She’s active in every part of the design and production process, making sure Babu’s organic cotton and Merino baby clothes stand the test of time. Longstanding quality is very important to her, so you can feel confident storing your Babu goodies away for your second, third or fourth baby.
Ethical production, safe practices and using renewable resources are non-negotiable. Babu is deeply involved in the communities of their behind-the-scenes workers. A percentage of profits go to developing sustainable practices in the local region.
Material is sourced from the best quality suppliers, whether its superfine merino wool for from New Zealand and Australia, or 100% organic cotton from India. Every product is designed in New Zealand and made in Vietnam, India, China and here at home under very exact specifications. (Ali, the designer and founder of Babu, likes things to be perfect!).
Babu™ is proudly New Zealand owned and run, and contributes proudly to the local economy.
