When my wife starting bringing home baby clothes for our youngest, I immediately thought of the horrible 70s onsies my parents put me in. While looking at my own baby pictures I noticed that my parents put me in things that where bright and multi-colored. The onsies in particular where fashioned after the jerseys that everyone seemed to be wearing in those days. The chest was one color, while the sleeves where another color. To be perfectly honest I didnt find one picture of myself in anything fashionable even by 70s standards which continue to reverberate in my mind whenever I look at the childrens clothes we bring home.
Now, the reasons parents should give their children clothing made from organic materials sound great but there is also a more practical incentive, which is the cost. While it may seem that clothes made from organic materials may cost more, in the long run, it is actually cheaper than clothes made from conventionally grown cotton. The reason being is that conventionally cotton is processed numerous times before it is cut into patterns and manufactured as clothes. From the dying process to the bleaching process, from being scoured and sprayed with formaldehyde spray, conventional cotton takes a beating. According to Rachel V. Birchler of Mooi, an organic childrens clothing boutique in Pittsburgh, \"conventionally produced cotton material lasts 10-20 washes before it starts to break down An organic cotton material lasts for 100 washes or more before it begins to wear down.\" In short, it is just sturdier.
As the father of two young children and as a husband of a wife who loves to shop for childrens clothes, I often find myself comparing the clothes my kids where to the clothes I used to where when I was their age. Growing up in the late 70s and early 80s I often find it somewhat comical when I make these comparisons. Style not withstanding, cost and brand themselves are nothing like they once where.
