Janice Masoud and the Sekem organic cotton farm

Janice Masoud and the Sekem organic cotton farm

Prior to founding her company in 1997, president Janice Masoud worked as an apparel designer for 14 years. When searching for organic products for her young children, who were experiencing allergic reactions to conventionally manufactured products, she discovered organic Egyptian cotton at the Sekem Initiative Farms in Egypt, and immediately started working with the farm on a line for the U.S. market.

Back then, organic cotton was not readily available, so Janice thought about starting a company to make organic baby clothes that could benefit her own children as well as others.

The Sekem Farm provides a worldwide model community for biodynamic agriculture and a workplace that is fully supportive of its workers, from educational programs to health care. From the cottonseed to the spinning and weaving of yarn to the sewing process, every manufacturing step is completely toxin free.

All Sekem farms are "Demeter" and COAE (Center of Organic Agric. in Egypt) Certified.

Demeter certification is the highest certification in the world, ensuring that the entire process, from growing the cotton, spinning, weaving, dying all the way to sewing the garment is certified. All Under the Nile hangtags feature the Demeter logo.

Sekem's group of biodynamic engineers assists all its organic cotton farms with any issues that may arise. A farm that has transitioned into organic farming can be certified after three years, which means absolutely no pesticides, insecticides, defoliants, or harmful chemicals can be used on the land for three consecutive years prior to certification. During this transitional period, Sekem helps the farmers trade their cotton on the local market for a fair price. After that period, Sekem purchases the certified organic cotton at above market price.

Sekem employs 700 people in its production facility, with 2,000 farm workers, and a co-op of 50 farmers who grow organic cotton on approximately 12,000 acres. collection

        I was amazed at how cute this item is. My Great Grandchild will truly love it, if I can bring myself to let go of it first. I wish they had things like this when I was a young parent. I know when I give it to my Grandson to give to his son he will be delighted!

          I bought these for a first-time parent (along with the oxford socks). I love these little fruits! They seem durable and are soft yet sturdy. Important selling features for me was that they are safe for teething babies and they can be washed!

            These teethers are all so cute. They're very durable and my 4 month old loves them. She chews on them every day. We gave them all names too :). They would be a great gift.

              I gave this as a gift to my 18mo. old goddaughter and she just loved it! She particularly liked the banana toy. Her parents liked that it was a "quiet" toy she could bring with her to church. Great quality!

                This basket is SO very adorable! Everything I hoped it would be except that it was much smaller than I expected. If I had carefully read the dimensions though, they are accurate so that is on me. I got it for my vegan Niece's first baby and I know she is going to love it!

                      I purchased this as a shower gift for my sister in law, who is a vegetarian. SIL and my brother both love their little community garden plot, so this was a unique gift fitted to their lifestyle. Both Mom and Baby love these toys.
