Born from the need for bamboo sleepwear for an eczema-plagued child, this wonderful UK brand has now created a whole range of soft, breathable clothing for babies.
The seemingly endless benefits of bamboo clothing are now well documented – but just as a refresher: clothing made from bamboo has the softness of cashmere, is naturally hypo-allergenic, thermo regulating, UV resistant, breathable, and absorbent. These are all perfect characteristics for children’s clothing. And bamboo also happens to be the fastest growing plant in the world, so the clothing is also a great eco option.
Panda and the Sparrow has an abundance of bamboo clothing on offer. For the littlest member of the clan, there are baby grows (£20 for the striped and coloured options and undyed is £18), long and short-sleeved tees, and leggings (£15).
All of these basics are very much mix and match, and will easily suffice as day wear or pjs. Sizes range from newborn through to 24 months. To complete the look, Panda and the Sparrow also has a range of hats for £8, and blankets. Or you can buy a few items ready to give in a gift set, which start at £45. Delivery to Australia is available for £9.
