Us Green Prophets believe that green education should start from a young age, and have already addressed ways that little ones can be eco conscious. Sometimes it’s recycling competitions at schools, other times it’s reading environmentally conscious children’s books, and sometimes it’s about what these little ones are wearing.
has already sung the praises of the good old cloth diapers, but what about all of the other baby acoutrements? Bibs, tights, t-shirts?
For those who like to do their organic cotton baby clothes shopping online there’s the Baby Organic store, but for those who like to go into an actual shop, ooh and aah at the tiny socks and pick out their own onesies – there’s Katanchic in central Tel Aviv.
Started by young mother and Bezalel Academy of Art and Design graduate, Sharon Einav, less than a year ago, Katanchic’s line of 100% organic baby clothing demonstrates that you can simultaneously cultivate care for the environment and care for style in little ones. Sharon, who studied animation at Bezalel, joined her mother (another Bezalel graduate) after the birth of her son in order to design a collection of organic clothes that would respond to the slim variety of environmentally friendly clothing for babies in Israel.
Katanchic’s collection is based on three animation characters, the three B’s: Bees, Beetles, and Butterflies (all of which are unisex, so feel free to buy these adorable items for a baby in the works). Having been designed by an animation designer, these clothes will definitely be some of the coolest in the playground.
Katanchic, Dizengoff Center (Gate 2), Tel Aviv (03-6290766)
