ABOUT OUR COLLECTION
Babysoy's baby layette line is designed by designer/mom, Amy and approved by daughter Harper, who refers to babysoy as her "comfy clothes".
Using simple and fresh designs, babysoy has created a sustainable and modern baby wardrobe for eco-babies without sacrificing comfort or style. We started off making our products with nature's own ingredient - soybean protein fiber (Azlon) and have added other eco-friendly fibers such as organic cotton and rayon from bamboo. It is about recyle, reduce and reuse soybean pulp to create baby's first wardrobe.
Azlon from Soybean: What we commonly refer to as "Soybean protein fiber". It is a sustainable and botanical textile fiber made from renewable and biodegradable natural resources - the leftover soybean pulp from tofu and soymilk production. Its 16 amino acids are healthy and nutritional for our skin. It is a green textile fiber that possesses the superiorities of many natural and synthesized fibers.
From Soy to Fiber:
1. Proteins are extracted from the leftover materials of tofu or soymilk production.
2. Protein liquids are forced through a device resembling a showerhead, called
a spinneret, to make liquid soy. This is called wet-spinning.
3. Liquid soy is solidified to make soybean protein fiber.
After protein is extracted from the leftover soybean pulp, it can be used as fertilizer.
Benefits of Soy: Soybean fiber is a soft, light, and smooth protein fiber. It is smoother than cashmere and has the same moisture absorption as cotton but with a better moisture transmission, making it more comfortable on the skin.
It is hydroscopic, air pervious, soft, smooth, dry and has superior warmth retention that’s comparable to wool.
Non-GMO Beans: All soybeans used are non-GMO (genetically modified organism) beans. Non-GMO soybeans cannot be treated or exposed to chemical pesticides during storage.
Azlon from soybean + Cotton/Organic Cotton: We combine the benefits of soybean protein fiber to cotton such as luster,
moisture-permeability, quick-dry ability and drape while keeping our cost and your price reasonable and affordable. This is so that more parents can join in on the green movement and more babies can benefit from the healthy botanical textile fiber. In addition, soybean fiber is so soft that it needs a longer length fiber to build a structure for the super soft textile.
Type of Cotton: Babysoy uses long-staple cotton also known as Sea-Island cotton which helps to build a longer lasting fabric structure.
Helping Our Environment: Babysoy’s baby and tots line are sustainable and eco-friendly. This is because azlon from soybean is a textile that is made from recycled material and it does not add any extra burden to mother nature.
Snaps + Zippers: All snaps and zippers are made by world-renowned YKK and are nickel-free, making dressing-time safe and easy.
Fire Retardant: Our products are NOT treated with any fire retardant chemicals, please make sure they are snug fitting on your babies.
Color Palette: Nature's inspiration turns outfit creation into a breeze. Our line is designed to easily mix-and-match from head-to-toe.
Fairly Made: Babysoy puts endless efforts in offering parents an eco-friendly and affordable layettes line made by artisans who are fairly-treated in a safe working environment. Co-founders personally conducts unannounced factory inspection at least 4 times a year.
