Stylemaker - Organic Zoo

Organic Zoo is a UK based fashion brand that makes simple yet adorable clothes using only 100% organic cotton. Better for the planet, kinder on your little one and more rewarding for the farmers, this is one brand of clothing you will feel very good about buying...

Organic Zoo strives to create simple and functional clothing made with the finest quality materials and craftmanship. Organic fibres are better for our planet, as they are grown without all the yucky chemicals. They are also kinder to your baby's skin, as they do not contain allergenic or toxic substances and organic cotton farmers get a much better price for their crop which means they also live a happier life.

We asked Paulina a few questions about what inspires her...
What do you love most about designing childrenswear?
I like the fact that it is a very happy industry. Whenever the child is coming through the door the whole room fills up with a different energy. Pure magic!

What inspires you?
When I work on a new collection, I like to be out of the office. Everyday I try to chose a different location... cafe, park, little bistro, all sorts. Depending on my mood and season of the year. That’s how I get my ideas.

Where are you based
We are based in Brighton in the UK. It’s a great place to be creative, to get inspiration. It makes my job much easier! Brighton is full of contrasting sceneries and colourful people... musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, people from different parts of the world... That’s a great stimulator.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A stewardess, a shop keeper, a professional ice skater and many many others.

What are the benefits of dressing your little one in organic cotton?
Baby skin is so sensitive and so exposed... ordinary cotton is treated with so many chemicals through the whole processes from the plant to the fabric (and residues remain even after many washes..) There is also an environmental and social aspect of choosing organic and that revolves around wildlife, animals and people.

What was your favourite outfit when you were a kid?
A white t-shirt with a pair of jeans... still my first choice!

If OrganicZoo were to design the perfect baby mobile, what would it look like?
