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

Comments about ORGANIC COTTON TEETHERS VEGGIE CRATE:

I am a registered dietitian and got a kick out of these cute little colorful veggies. I purchased them for a co worker who is expecting. She thought they were adorable and fun. My only concern is the quality of sewing may not hold up to tough play, but overall this was an awesome and well received gift.

            I purchased these vegetables as a baby gift for my daughter's college friend. She and her husband live in Seattle and are vegetarians. They are also into organic materials for their baby. She LOVED the gift and was thrilled at the thoughtfulness. I highly recommend this unique toy.

            I purchased this item as a gift for a baby shower. It was a BIG hit! Nobody had ever seen such a cute gift! The smiley faces on each vegetable shows the level of detail put into the vegetable teethers. Very fun and unique. However, it was a bit difficult to wrap as it came in the crate covered with plastic.

            Delivery was within the estimated time and arrived in good shape.

              So glad it arrived in a timely manner, since I was leaving town and the product was for the person I was going to visit before their baby was born.

              However, I couldn't find where my comments to the recipient were typed!!!
