Smiling mushroom in 100% organic cotton is a great way to set baby on a path to healthy eating. Cotton is one of the world's most pesticide intensive crops and cotton farming takes a heavy toll on the environment. According to Simplelife- cotton is heavily sprayed 8-10 times a season in extreme cases with chemicals so toxic they gradually render fields barren. To create the finished goods- fabrics are often colored with toxic dyes and finished with formaldehyde. Is this really what you want to put against your baby's delicate skin? Perfectly healthy for your child and our environment.

Prior to founding Under the Nile in 1997, company 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 I thought about starting a company to make organic baby clothes that could benefit my own children as well as others,. explained Janice.
