Sustainable Fabrics: Exploring the Eco-Friendly World of Blue Brontide

Welcome to the eco-friendly world of Blue Brontide, where sustainable fabrics take centre stage when we design and make our eco-friendly dummy clips.

Blue Brontide is committed to changing the way we think about the fabrics used in baby products and accessories. We think when it comes to making our dummy clips the focus should lie in sourcing and crafting sustainable materials that not only look great but also durable, long-lasting and have a positive impact on the environment. From GOTS certified organic cotton thread to sustainable hemp fabrics, these materials are carefully selected not only to create an Eco-friendly product but to make sure they are safe against your baby's soft delicate skin.

Join us as we explore why we choose sustainable fabrics and delve into the myriad benefits they offer. From breathable and hypoallergenic properties to eco-friendly production processes, these materials bring together style, comfort, and sustainability in perfect harmony. Discover the world of Blue Brontide and embrace the future of eco-conscious baby accessories.


With the impact human production is having in the modern world it’s becoming inescapably to avoid the issue of waste + pollution that mass consumerism causes. With this issue in mind more and more people are now turning their backs on mass-produced products made using wasteful or harmful manufacturing processes, becoming more conscientious consumers & turning to more sustainable products made using earth-friendly organic materials such as sustainable fabrics.  

So what exactly is a sustainable fabric?

Sustainable fabrics consist of 2 different types of fibres, plant fibres such as Hemp, Cotton, Soy & animal fibres like Wool, Camel or llama, (amazing as a fluffy llama dummy clip would be, Blue Brontide only uses plant-based fibres for its products). These fibres are sourced from Eco-friendly resources meaning the plant fibres will be cultivated without the use of chemical pesticides, whilst conserving an ecological balance by not depleting natural resources & without compromising the ability for future generations to meet their own needs!


Why Choose Sustainable Fabrics?

Choosing sustainable fabrics is a positive step towards reducing our environmental impact. Sustainable fabrics are not only produced organically making them free from the chemicals used to grow conventional fibres such as cotton (which leaves a huge environmental footprint) but are also fully bio-degradable, when these fabrics meet the end of its life-cycle they will simply break down in soil just like plants, to leave a clean world for our next generation.

Besides helping the environment, there are other benefits from organic/sustainable grown fibres. Working environments are better for those on farms without the use of chemicals found in – pesticides, herbicides, fungicides – which can reportedly cause regular acute and chronic health problems and small-scale farmers save money by not having to buy a large amount of these pesticides.


What are the Benefits of Using Sustainable Fabrics?

Consumers benefit too, some suggest that organic/sustainable fabrics are softer, easier on your skin as they are naturally hypoallergenic, making them ideal for sensitive skin and promoting overall well-being. Sustainable fabrics can also last longer by not breaking down as easily as man-made or conventional grown fibres, even after several washes, reducing the need for frequent replacements and ultimately saving resources. By choosing sustainable fabrics, we not only contribute to a greener planet but also enjoy the comfort and quality that these materials provide.

In a world where fast fashion dominates the industry, opting for sustainable fabrics is a conscious choice that aligns with ethical values. By supporting brands that prioritise sustainability, we encourage a shift towards a more responsible and environmentally friendly fashion landscape. Sustainable fabrics offer a way to make a positive impact through our everyday choices, promoting a better future for both the fashion industry and the planet.

All of our organic, sustainable base clothes used for our organic dummy clips are hand screen printed by the fabulous Lucie Summers a contemporary textile artist here in the U.K. using low-impact water-based inks, why is this so important. . . well, it means they don’t include phthalate or PVC which are harmful to the environment, & no solvents are needed to clean the printing screens as the ink residue can be simply washed away with water!
