Welcome to Barefoot Giraffe! My husband, (Brian) and I, (Maeve) set up Barefoot Giraffe with a desire to supply beautiful, luxurious, memorable baby gifts that are not only kind to our planet but also kind and gentle on your baby’s delicate skin.
Our mission is to try to make sure that the products we source for our hamper and luxury gift sets are not only made mostly from organic cotton, ethically produced and of the highest quality but are also gorgeous, unique and will become that ‘special gift’ that will be treasured for years to come.
Below are the Brands we have chosen for our Hampers and Gift Sets and each of these have GOTS certified products
GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard, with the GOTS certification signifying environmental and social responsibility throughout the chain, from cultivation, preparation and production to the finished product.
The GOTS label shows that the product is made from organically grown raw materials, free from pesticides and only using cotton from certified organic cotton growers who get paid fairly.
The GOTS certification shows that the products are completely free of harmful substances and when dyeing the products, the colours do not contain any toxins that are harmful to humans or the environment.
For a GOTS certification, there are strict regulations with regards to the working environment and social rights for those who work in the various stages of the manufacturing process. A GOTS certification ensures that workers are of adult age, work under good working conditions, are paid fairly, have development opportunities regardless of gender and are allowed freely express their opinions.
The GOTS brand is a quality stamp and the end result are organic products of the highest quality that have not been in contact with harmful chemicals and are therefore just as kind to children’s skin as they are to the environment.
