With two new collections a year, Silkberry Baby is growing at a dramatic rate.
The eco-baby and children’s clothing line, which was created by Vancouver, B.C., mom Carrie Shan, employs two people, and features unique and personal designs including the bestselling Wild By Nature collection. The line features everything from shirts and pants to blankets, onesies and hoodies.
Shan’s goal was to make a line of products which make life easier for parents and clothes babies and toddlers want to wear.
“The silky soft bamboo fabric and modern boutique look of our products are every mom’s and baby’s favourite all-season essentials,” Shan said. “The whole collection makes a perfect gift for an expecting mom or a dear friend.”
Shan is also proud to say the rayon from the bamboo used in her products is OEKO-TEX 100 certified meaning it is tested for illegal substances, legally regulated substances and known harmful (but not legally regulated) chemicals. The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is an independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production.
Bamboo is a great material for children’s clothes.
“Bamboo fabric is considered a sustainable source and it feels soft like silk,” she said. “Other features of bamboo fabric are it is breathable, comfortable and offers natural UV protection.”
Besides being home to spend time with her own children, running the business gives Shan pride every time she hears from a happy customer.
Her products, which are manufactured in China under the supervision of a third party auditor and quality controller, are all available online at www.silkberrybaby.com and at approximately 200 retailers worldwide. Find a store near you.
“When a mom sent me an email about how good Silkberry Baby products are, I feel very happy,” she said. “Parents and grandparents love our simple designs and fresh, modern colour palette. We will continue to work hard to meet our customers’ and retailers’ needs and wishes.”
