California

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.

The fruits are so adorable, especially the banana and grapes that had little faces, and it's nice that they're organic so you know the dyes won't be harmful to babies. I love the idea of introducing kids to fruits and veggies in a fun environment. It's a wonderful present.

That said, the fruits weren't all that soft, they were stiffer than I'd expected. Also, the basket that they come in just barely holds all the fruits in, so they tend to fall out, but with kids, they're not likely to stay in the basket long anyway.

I have looked at this product in the catalog for at least a year and wanted it for baby gifts as most everyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with things organic. I loved the fact that this was advertised a chewing/teething toy for babies and saw the description showed "ages 0 and up" in the catalog. When I finally ordered the product online - I did not check the age bracket and was very disappointed to see it was for ages 2 and up when I received the product. I had ordered 2 and they were for baby gifts and now I can't use them. Very disappointed. And - yes, I know I can return them, but who has time for that? That's why I catalog shop in the first place.....

      My 4 month old loves these soft teethers. They are easy to grasp and have a good mouth feel. She also loves the braided handle on the basket.
      They are easy to clean and very cute, I always have this "organic fruit basket" on display when guests arrive. My baby will be starting solids soon and these will help her to learn about foods.

                  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!

                      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!
