Grown was founded by Sara, a mum of two from the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. Grown launched in 2019 and is a knit wear label for babies and children from size New-Born to size 5, most of Grown's styles are unisex and most are made from 100% Organic Cotton which is GOTS certified.
They only use natural, sustainable and eco-friendly fibres and concentrate on small batch production focusing on ethical production practices.
The reason they choose to use organic cotton is that the main benefit of organic material, is that the crops aren't treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and GMO’s - No nasties! These toxins are harmful for farmers and workers, us as consumers, and our entire wildlife eco-systems due to laundering. Organic cotton also uses far less water than regular cotton during manufacturing, also organic cotton is very durable and super breathable.
And you'll be happy to know that because the clothing industry is one of the most polluting in the world, Grown won’t ever use synthetic fibres in their garments, no polyester, no nylon or acrylic, as these take 100’s of years to break down. They are focused on creating high quality garments that can be passed down through the family and represent real value.
And all of these reasons are why Grown is one of our favourite kids brands at Hope & Me. Not only a beautiful product but a Company that puts social responsibility at the forefront of what they do.
