It's Only Natural, Baby

You believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way, right? So get your greatest little loves on an early path to environmental awareness by dressing them in all-new, organic custom clothing made especially for local keiki by online eco store Organic Keiki.

The line’s first collection features soft, stretchy organic denim toddler jeans manufactured here in Honolulu (and designed by Lynn Sakutori of Satori Designs ), which can be worn cuff up or cuff down. To get their message out with style they also created onesies and tees with “Ride the Recycle Wave” graphics by local artist Parker Moosman, printed in Honolulu with water-based www.leichic.cominks that are softer on keiki skin. And for those who want to remain incognito, they’ve got fair-trade organic cotton basic tees and onesies from Hae Now.

Originally started by a young Maui mother, new Organic Keiki owners Regan and Susan Ranoa have revamped the website and infused the wide selection of organic clothes and eco-friendly accessories for kids and moms with some lighthearted fun and funk. Next up is a Rasta-themed custom line, including boardshort-style woven shorts for the boys and girly short-shorts.

Now that’s a natural selection.

Available online at Organic Keiki . Also available at this weekend's Baby Expo, October 18 & 19 at the Neil Blaisdell Center, Honolulu.
