Every now and then, we come across a wonderful fair-trade, organic and natural baby, mother and children’s clothing and accessories company that makes us smile broadly. Our latest organic store crush is Wild Dill.
We love Wild Dill so much, we partnered up with it as an affiliate and decided to share the love with our readers.
While “wild dill” sounds like a plant herb, it actually is named for the son, Dylan, of Jennifer, the original owner of the San Francisco-bay area organic children’s clothing store. In 2014, mom of two Tina Bar jumped at the opportunity to purchase the store when it came available for sale and took it online.
Today, Wild Dill partners with a large range of Fair Trade partners and craftspeople with an organizational mission.
Think indie designers, fair trade artisans and USA based-family businesses.
Wild Dill picks brands that integrate color, pattern and a global perspective; and those that select soft, comfortable fabrics with a focus on organic and pima cottons; handmade and heirloom quality toys made from top quality sustainable wood, soy fiber, bamboo fabric, and organic cotton or other natural materials.
You cannot get any more social conscious than that!
Whimsical and inspired, Wild Dill celebrates “curiosity of childhood, joy of motherhood and comfort of home.” Yes. Love!
Here are our top picks among the ample options available at Wild Dill starting with their Organic Animal Onesies (above). We imagine they are great for teaching your infant his alphabet early in life by having her wear a letter with an animal whose name start with that letter. Or each onesie could represent the baby’s first or last name and be a monogram-ish item. Eh? eh? Can you see it?
The onesies are pre-shrunk and tagless, made of 100% organic soft baby ribbed unbleached natural cotton. They are are $26 each, a bit pricey for one onesie, but for a personalized, heirloom quality item, that’s not bad. Also, the purchase supports social good. Portions of each sale goes toward the Tree Planting Foundation, a wonderful non-profit that brings fruit trees to a range of communities worldwide.
These series of dolls are adorable dolls are designed in Brooklyn, New York but finished and created in India from the Hazel Village Woodland collection. Their clothes can be removed and worn on other dolls in the collection. They are wonderfully priced at $44.
These fair trade stuffed animals are made of 100% cotton African batik fabric (an Afrian wax-print textile) with soft jersey knit. They have no buttons so they are safe for kids and proceeds from the sales of these dolls that start at $44 go to Mwayiwathu HIV Support Group. Very very good!
For mom (or dad), I totally adore this handmade unlined journal made from recycled leather and handmade cotton paper is environmentally friendly and runs $38.
How cute and stylish are these sets of Scarf bibs? These 100% cotton made in the USA bibs are perfect for your teether who is constantly drooling. They have a velcro closure and are lined with with ultra lightweight yet absorbent cotton flannel and are perfect for any season. They’ll run you $18.
I love this Baby Animal Memory book which is eco-friendly and made with soy-based ink is also $38. It comes with 2 pre-baby pages for photos, ultrasound and note to baby; 3 pages for when baby arrives including a spot for footprints, a page to place birth announcement and hospital bracelet; 2 your world pages for a photo of home and how much things cost when baby was born; 12 pages of month documenting; 10 pages that include family tree, favorite things, many firsts including holidays, first scribble, etc.; 5 birthday pages; 1 first day of school page and 11 blank pages with embellishment
Made of 100% organically grown cotton, this trio Organic Rainforest Towels feature exclusive designs that celebrate some of nature’s wildlife: Happy Lemur, Silly Frog and Funny Bird and made of low-impact dyes are large enough to wrap your baby up! The set cost $44 and would make a great baby shower gift!
For the nursery and for teaching your toddler to child-aged kid the world beyond the confines of his block, there’s this lovely completely machine-washable World Map Rug, made up of 100% natural cotton and non-toxic dyes. Sadly, it’s out of stock but runs $250 when it is available.
Another finally, this last item we’d love for a child’s room is this beautiful print by artist Juliet Meeks, which is a magical sleepy narwhal swimming under a starry sky and moonlit night. The item is on matte slightly textured 100% cotton acid-free paper and digitally printed with archival pigment inks. And runs $28. You can get one with a frame for $75. It would really stand out and stimulate baby.
