Meet: Yoli & Otis

Saturday, Apr 11, 2015, 3:28 PM / Byron Bay, Australia



YOLI & OTIS IS A BRAND that completely steals your heart away. A small family of four, Lena, Carlo, Yoli and Otis take you through their daily wanderings set amidst the tropical savannah of Australia, the salty spindrift of its expansive shorelines and gold coasts.

A beacon for natural parenting, their baby carriers are made from breathable organic cotton, perfect for temperate conditions, and are made with all-natural dyes from botanical sources such as turmeric, henna, aloe vera and indigo. The colors are in tune with mother nature and take on tones such as moss, clay, sage, peat, blue Lechenaultia and white rose.

Organic, pesticide-free cotton plants are able to produce longer-stable cotton fibers that yield stronger yarn and more durable fabrics. This also helps to keep the environment and workers healthy. According to the Soil Association, the non-organic cotton industry uses approximately 25 per cent of all the world’s insecticides and 10 per cent of pesticides. Toxic pesticides used in non-organic systems poison wildlife and rivers too. Moreover, an estimated 30 per cent of the world’s non-organic cotton is genetically modified, contributing to social problems, as the big companies developing the seeds have a monopoly in the industry and thus control many of the farmers.
