Now that the kids are in elementary school, the sight of baby clothes makes MP feel nostalgic. Parents have a short grace period when it comes to choosing what their kids wear, which lends itself to the wistful pangs a Mom feels when she walks by the baby and toddler section of a store and realizes how much her kids have grown in a few, short years.
This is exactly the state of mind MP was in when she came across the BAOBAB Organics booth at the Common Ground Fair last year. Textile designer Vero Poblete-Howell makes beautiful kids’ clothes and stuffed toys at her studio in Waldoboro. Her company, which is named after the largest tree on earth, prides itself on using organic, sustainably produced fabrics. There’s no denying the quality, and Vero’s great eye for design.
Irresistible, right? And we’re so proud to have such an environmentally responsible children’s wear company in Maine. In fact, Down East Magazine awarded BAOBAB “Best Green Children’s Garb” in 2014.
Just for Cute Potato readers, BAOBAB is offering 15% off your purchase of $30 or more in their Etsy shop. All you need to do is enter the code: CUTEPOTATO15 at checkout. Offer ends June 17, 2015.
Happy shopping and enjoy your little ones! xo, MP
