Clothes for the littlest ones

How to make clothes for the littlest ones

 

Design Director Polarn O. PyretOur Design Director Karina Lundell explains what we think about when we design clothes for the littlest ones. We are always very careful about functionality, quality and choice of materials when we design our clothes, but we are even more careful when it comes our newborn range in sizes 44-68 for our littlest customers. Our aim is for the clothes to be practical and functional, have good wear in them, be passed on, while also being soft and comfortable. So we pay special attention to the following:
 

 

 

  • No buttons on the back – Important so that there is nothing hard and uncomfortable pressing against the child’s soft skin. 
  • Extra soft seams – The fabric overlaps the seams to ensure there are no scratchy or chafing edges against the skin. 
  • Bodysuits with wraparound solution – To make dressing and undressing easier when heads and necks are still unstable. 
  • Wraparound cuffs on tops and trousers – To extend the usage time of the garments as children grow so quickly during this time. 
  • Overall with an opening along the inside of one leg – To make dressing and undressing easier. 
  • Overalls and rompers with popper in the crotch – To make dressing and undressing easier during nappy changes. 
  • Socks with extra high cuffs – Our turn-up socks have high cuffs for good grip, as we know that regular socks slip off small feet very easily. 
  • Wind fleece overall – We do not use a windproof lining in the hood or on the front as the lung capacity of young babies is not yet fully developed and the area around their airways should be kept as free as possible. 
  • Turn-up arm and leg cuffs – To protect hands and feet against the cold, you can fold down the cuffs over hands and feet. 
  • Extra soft material – Children’s skin is sensitive, so we always try to use extra soft fabrics made from organic cotton and extra soft seams. 
  • Washable at 60 degrees – Our garments can generally be washed at 60 degrees to ensure that bacteria is killed in the wash, but you can of course wash at lower temperatures too to be kinder to the environment.
