“Buy less, choose well, make it last” – Vivienne Westwood
Over the past several years, I have noticed a movement towards an increased awareness around ethical fashion. As we become more conscious with our lifestyle choices, often we are looking to support or align ourselves with brands that operate with a similar mission. As a parent, I have become more conscientious of the products we bring into our home, and specifically am buying less clothing overall. But when I do, it is of better quality from brands that I trust and value. Peekaboo Beans is a children’s clothing company that is committed to manufacturing and selling ethically designed and manufactured children’s clothing through a direct sales business model. Becoming a Peekaboo Beans Independent Stylist means that you can earn income by sharing and selling products that have been produced with no hazardous chemicals and is committed to their mission of promoting children’s play. You can build an ethical closet for your children with Peekaboo Beans clothing.
*This is a sponsored post, however all opinions are my own.
There is no universal definition for ethical fashion. Usually what it refers to is how the clothing is made, how the workers that created the product are employed/treated and the factory conditions.
Slow fashion is a term that refers to the design, quality and the intention with which the garment was made – essentially it means that it has been designed and made to last, as opposed to created quickly and possibly unethically in order to gain quick profits (aka, fast fashion).
Peekaboo Beans follows the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 which is an independent testing and certification system that ensures that the garments produced have no carcinogenic dyes, heavy metals or dangerous finishes. All fabrics have been pre-shrunk to ensure no surprises when you launder them, and the attention to details such as twill tape hems helps to extend the lifespan of the garments. Your children may even outgrow their PB garments before they wear out, and many Stylists and long-time Peekaboo Beans enthusiasts have been passing down their garments through several generations. Peekaboo Beans garments are designed with custom-made, high thread count fabric to keep their products out of landfills and on the playground.
Independent Stylist Nina Sanger, who has been an with the company for 6+ years has seen first-hand how Peekaboo Beans garments wear: “I started buying clothes for my daughter when she was 4 years old, and 7 years later, some of those clothes are still in her rotation. They are designed to grow with your child, and kids get attached to pieces that feel good and become favourites.”
She also mentioned that each season, new pieces are designed by the company to work with pieces from seasons past. You can mix and match from season to season, and grow your child’s ethical closet a few pieces at a time. The company designs many ‘grow-with-me’ styles to ensure that your child can wear the same piece for a number of years.
