I never realized the true importance of comfortable and functional essential garments, such as socks, until I became a parent. It is amazing how the differences in a sock’s make and style can affect little feet! Having a four-year-old boy and 9-year-old girl, I have experienced the trial and error of sock purchases (and returns) and believe that now, I have the process down to a science. Hopefully I can save future parents some grief! With the Essential Sale in full swing, this is the best time to stock up on all those socks, underwear, and undergarments that your child will need for a fun-filled summer. 0 – 12 months The littlest feet of all are incredibly hard to find socks for that will Stay …

At Polarn O. Pyret we thoroughly enjoy dressing your lovely babies in comfort and style! We wouldn’t be able to so without such a wonderful design department behind the scenes in Stockholm. Following we have an interview with our lead designer,  Karina Lundell, on what guides us as a brand when we design clothes for your newborns! Overall, our goal is for the clothes to be practical and functional, have a long life to them (allowing them to be inherited and even sold on the second hand market) while also being soft, comfortable, and fun! We pay particular attention to the following details: No buttons on the back – Nothing hard or uncomfortable presses against the child’s soft skin. Extra soft seams – The fabric …

PO.P Outerwear makes the Star Tribune in style! “Love the hang tags!” comments Castine3. PO.P Finland knows how to deck the halls.

By Stacie Billis, One Hungry Mama Baking with kids is a holiday tradition for many families—but, sometimes, the reality isn’t as much fun as the idea of it. The mess and stress of baking with kids can take away the fun, so being prepared is a must. Depending on your child’s age, prepping just a few things ahead of time can make all the difference and bring joy back to a family tradition. One of my favorite things to make ahead is pie dough. When it’s time to get in the kitchen to make Thanksgiving pies with my kids, I pull out one or two rounds for “serious” pie making, and another one that my littlest can play with. My older son and I get …

Jeans made of durable cotton garments are in most families, perfect for slow, climbing and playing. But the clothes also contain chemicals that are far from child-friendly shows Testfakta, a Swedish garment testing company. Nine out of ten children jeans contain chemicals, shows the Testfakta test, but not Polarn O. Pyret jeans. In particular, the environment takes a beating when toxic substances flow into the wash water. In an analysis of ten pair of jeans for children from different European brands, it appears that three pairs containing the hazardous substance nonylphenol (NPE), which is very toxic to aquatic organisms, and has also been shown to disrupt the natural balance of hormones. NPE is already prohibited in Europe, and the Swedish Chemicals Agency is currently lobbying …
