Press Release: January 22, 2010
Top US brand Speesees has arrived in the UK. This San Francisco based company produce playfully-designed, high-quality baby and children's clothing, and best of all, every single one of their products are organic and fair.
The Speesees factory in a small village in India is certified SA8000, a social accountability standard for decent working conditions (including safety, remuneration, fair working hours, no discrimination or child labour) The money earned by their factory supports not only its workers, but also the community. Part of the money you spend on Speesees clothing will be put towards a variety of purposes within the village, from buying school supplies and a water pump, to building a playground at the local orphanage. On top of this, all Speesees cotton is 100% skal-certified organic, which means no pesticides or chemical fertilizers have been used in its cultivation. All fabrics are treated with low-impact/ herbal dyes, the prints are made with pigments, poppers are nickel-free, and no formaldehyde or dioxin are used in the process.
Rachel Pearson, founder of Speesees, says Our mission at Speesees is to be fun, fair and organic in the products we make, the way we conduct business and the baby steps we take towards creating a more sustainable future for the animal, plant and human Speesees on our children's planet. Sam Bowley, owner of Little Lollipop Kids, the popular online childrens clothing boutique, is a firm believer in this mission and feels Speesees is a real find. We are one of the first UK companies to stock Speesees and I am delighted to have it in our product range. Feedback from customers has been extremely positive, especially regarding the funky graphic designs, vivid colours, and the growing line of styles. Their completely original dresses and 70s style jumpsuits have proved especially popular! Sam goes on to point out that their soft, durable, organic cotton is extra-comfy for kids and washes and wears well, so is great for parents too. Im very excited about our new Spring stock, which will be on our website very soon!
