We were treasure hunting amongst the crunchy leaves today 🍁 Let’s talk clothes for a minute. I wish that I could dress Reid in ethically made, organic, handmade etc. clothes all the time. Alas, our budget doesn’t stretch that far (even a capsule version), so I try as much as possible to thrift Reid’s clothes and ask family to knit when possible (I think I’m obsessed with hand-knits!). This jacket was knitted by my mum when Reid was in utero, and this is the third year he has worn it-now it finally fits! The corduroy pants are thrifted from an op-shop and the boots were bought second hand-but in good condition. I do lash out, and buy some really good quality new items from @woollykins_organics (if only I had aaaall the money 😍🙌🏻) at times. But I am really trying to avoid hitting those big (cheap) stores to buy clothes. Firstly because of the conditions they are made in, but also, I just found out that most of the clothing sold here is coated in toxic chemicals to make them low fire danger. This is great for fire safety, however it means that those chemicals are rubbing against my babe’s skin all day every day. Now that, I want to try to avoid as much as I possibly can. And after lots of washing, those chemicals reduce. What do you do to dress your children in clothes that fits within your ethics, but doesn’t break the bank?
