Fierce Hugs organic cotton baby t-shirt Who says that Twitter is a waste of time? Hey, I discovered Fierce Hugs there today!

Fierce Hugs is a little company that specializes in ethical and affordable organic cotton baby tees and onesies.

These are original designs by two independent artists: Dagmar Meinders from The Netherlands, and Silvia Osella from Torino, Italy, whose work includes the Confused Cloud illustration shown on the little t-shirt here.

The t-shirt is $24 and comes in three sizes: 6-12 months, 12-18m, and 18-24m. The same design is also available in 0-3m and 3-6m as a bodysuit, but that’s just far too cute to show you here.

    @kayellen, glad you liked it too.

    @Ari, thanks very much for taking the time to raise an interesting question. But I must confess to a bit of confusion – I’m not entirely clear on what you mean by “buying foreign” and exactly how American organized labour would come into the equation?

    As far as I know, cotton cannot be grown in Canada at all, so if we want cotton clothes we do have to buy products that originate in another country…

    Granted, there are Canadian companies (such as Rawganique) that sell wonderful clothing of organic cotton – but still the cotton must come from elsewhere. Yes?

    In this case, I enjoyed the work of the designers at Fierce Hugs, and that’s why this particular baby tee-shirt is featured. And in general, given a choice between buying cotton products that harm the environment and those that try to mitigate that with organic crop standards (plus adhering to fair labour / fair trade practices), my inclination is to think that the latter is preferable.

    In an ideal world, yes, of course, we’d extend the “100 Mile Diet” concept to everything we bring into our homes. Believe me, as someone who lives in a farming community and sees firsthand the impact of big agri-business on the small local producer, I’d be the first in line!

    Speaking of organic cotton manufacturers, did you hear the news south of the border from a few weeks ago that organizers of the U.S. Democratic National Convention wanting the affair to be as carbon neutral as possible are having a hard time finding an organized American labor union that makes organic baseball caps? Organized labor makes baseball caps, and organized labor makes cotton clothing, but there’s no such thing as an organic cap from organized labor in this country.

    Which begs the question why you prefer to buy foreign.
