hello everyone! it's been a long time since i have been able to post news. i hope you have all had a wonderful month. ours was spent in relocation and all of the fun and unexpected challenges that involves. & so, with the spring, we start anew. this will be a long post, so grab a coffee or tea and sit for a bit.
i had been diligently looking for a very small contractor to help with our hemp production. sewing everything myself was becoming very difficult and though i wanted to keep all of sustainablebabyish made in our home, due to the move, increased orders, and more custom requests, i decided that a small contractor would be the best choice. the hemp products are still made in the US by a husband and wife team. they are great to work with and are excited about making sustainablebabyish.
for spring, we will be offering hemp fitteds, flats and doublers in natural, pink & blue. if you would like to try pink or blue fitteds or flats, now is the time--we'll be switching over to new colors for late spring/early summer.
wool news: our covers are an essential for your little ones this spring & summer. we'll have karate pants throughout the year and will be adding karate shorts. our covers do fit under clothing, and moving into the warm months, are a great pair with leggings for your summer outings. look for our new certified organic wool/lycra covers in june ~ stretchy and extra soft.
we at sloomb are also confirming the announcement about an exclusive relationship with Kelly's Closet. they will be the only other retailer of sustaibnablebabyish for the coming year.
totes are available again, tomorrow 3-7-08, and will be the new way of ordering customs. i no longer hand dye the hemp, so if you are considering a tote, please check each listing for available colors/sizes. i will offer a few totes every month and add-ons are available to make your tote fully customized. wool special orders can be made by purchasing a wool tote, please watch for the wool tote lisitngs for more information. if you are waiting on a custom order, please see the customs list to the left for your order updates. i had no intention of these taking this long, so thank you all for your patience during my relocation.
on the customer service side, i would like to introduce my mom, Vicki. she is helping us out with shipping and returns or exchanges, so you may occasionally receive an email from her. she is really easy to work with and is excited about being part of the team.
the sustainablebabyish photo contest will be going up within two weeks. all of the photos for this month's contest have been filled. if you would like to enter your little one in the contest for april, five spots will be available. please enter your photos by April 3 (subject: sustainablebabyish photo contest / april ). we will choose five for the contest and the winner will receive a $25 gift card to sloomb. this month's theme is: "out of indoors."
lastly, i am making my way through a month of emails as quickly as possible. please feel free to resend your questions if i have not answered them here. remember that i won't be offering pink & blue hemp again for a while, so please order "while supplies last." thank you for all of your kind emails during my move. with that, enjoy! xo erin
