Cotton Pigs

5 locally grown ethical baby brands you need to know about
Hong Kong’s first reversible organic clothing line for baby, Cotton Pigs was launched by, cryptorency specialist turned mompreneur, Stephanie when she was looking for ways to travel light with her daughter. It inspired her to create reversible baby wear that would allow her to pack less clothes while still having fun playing with a variety of different prints and designs. With a daughter often prone to eczema, Stephanie also made the fabric choice a priority, choosing a hypoallergenic organic cotton as smooth as possible for babys’ sensitive skin. 
How cute is it that the patterns are mostly inspired from Charlotte’s, Stephanie’s daughter, favourite things such as her unicorn soft toys or fruits she like to eat like apple and strawberries?
Next up on our shopping list: the Unicorns and Apples reversible romper (HKD 349), a soft and sleeveless reversible romper with cute patterns and shorty legs that will gives the little ones a lot of room to grow into.

Hong Kong’s one stop shop for natural, organic and eco-friendly baby products, Petit Tippi was founded by mompreneur Vicky when she couldn’t find eco-friendly alternative for baby essentials in Hong Kong after becoming a mother.

And we mean, how cute are the Hong Kong street-food inspired prints of their bodysuit, organic bamboo blend swaddles and bandana bibs? I personally own the Dim Sum printed swaddle and can’t even count how many people already asked me where it is from. It is just the cutest thing.
