Clothing Close To Nature. Tomo & Edie

I get a warm, fuzzy feeling when I look through the pages of one of my favorite online stores. Their logo is Chikyujin Tomo&Edie. Literally translated, the character chikyu is "earth" and jin is the character for "man". Their children, Tomo and Edie, remind them daily that we all are "world members" so they do their part to promote peace, protect the environment, educate their children, and be nice to all. They hope this gets translated into their products, so that you know you are doing something nice for you and your child. Well, after seeing their collection, there's no doubt in my mind that they have succeeded.

The threads of their garments showcase an ancient blend of color and art. Using natural plant dyes, they transform the pale, to a fantastic display of color. Each piece shines as an original, one-of-a-kind masterpiece. With choices in color and styles of garment, you can bestow Good Health, Good Fortune, Integrity, or Protect From Harm.

Kusakizome is a traditional Japanese dye technique using materials from nature. Each garment is made with love from the softest organic cotton. They are hand-dyed, and perfect your 0-6 month baby. If you prefer to go natural and enjoy the beautiful simplicity the garments, unbleached cotton is available. Seams are sewn on the outside, so they will not irritate your baby's delicate skin. The beautiful kimonos wrap around your baby instead of going overhead, eliminating the panic for first-time moms trying to pull clothing over their infant's precious heads. The kimonos fits loosely to protect the sensitive umbilical cord area. Best of all, the kimonos allow for easy access for diaper changes, a blessing in the middle of the night!

Visit and fall in love with this line of clothing that so perfectly blends harmony and nature. Organic cotton with no harmful chemicals will give your baby the best possible start. So get close to nature and revel in the beauty that it can provide.
