I received the products in exchange for my honest review.
Did you know why is the weather getting cold after the winter solstice on the 21st of December? As our planet’s surface is covered mainly with water and for water it takes a longer time to warm up and cool down – this is called seasonal lag, and this is why the coldest days come after the winter solstice. With that in mind, this is the right time to get new outerwear for you and the children if you need next sizes for them as they are not only on sale after Christmas but you will also just need the warmer clothing as the coldest part of the year starts.
I have recently received a new kit for my two little ones: jackets with a set of scarf, hats and mittens from Vertbaudet. If you have not tried them yet, it’s a French baby and children wear brand but they also make gorgeous interior design bits for children’s bedroom and nursery. They are very chic and cool – just what you’d expect from a French designer. My daughter picked herself a purple, reversible jacket and pink, knitted hat and scarf set whilst my boy went for an orange jacket with a hood (he likes bright colours even as a boy – so it’s always good to see when shops sell bright colours for boys too).
What we thought about them
We have also found that their quality is very good. We already had to wash the new jackets, twice in fact, as they got really muddy – see photos for a proof. They do wash very well on 30 Celsius which definitely makes a mum’s life easier. The sizes are true sizes: I often find a lot of brands’ clothes being too big for my children but Vertbaudet has the right sizes which is good to know when you order online. The designs are very cute. I love the idea of the reversible jackets! Why not use both sides? Also, if they damage one side and you can’t mend it aesthetically – which often happens with little kids – there’s still life left in the garment using the other side! Brilliant and saves the garment ending up in the bin. Definitely good for the environment!
Qualities that matter to me
Vertbaudet sources the from organic methods of agriculture and use natural materials wherever possible. (Bobcat’s fur trim on his new jacket is obviously faux fur!) Not only that but they came with an OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certification. OEKO-TEX is the global standardised quality assurance system for textiles based in Zurich. Oeko-Tex labels and certificates confirm the human-ecological safety of textile products during all stages of production: from raw materials all the way to the end products.
