While most people seem to be thinking of Winter right now all Australian mum Emma can talk about is Summer, her brand new store Summer Child to be precise. Emma has a passion for beautiful products that are created by clever people who want to tread lightly and kindly on the earth and she has selected her favourite homemade baby gifts, organic baby products and eco friendly products for (expecting) mums and their babies to sell at Summer Child.

What makes Summer Child unique is that ‘Everything has a story’, every single product in store is selected because it is made by people who wanted to create something beautiful for their children and are environmentally conscious about the way they do this. You can read about these amazing people and their stories on the Summer Child website and blog, by shopping here you are buying much more than just a product.

The story of Lily and Pearl started with grandma Pearl and aunt Lil and is being told by Sam who lovingly creates organic skincare for babies and mums to her family’s recipes. The range is made right here in Australia using only the best organic ingredients to look after your and your baby’s skin the natural way. The Organic Baby Nappy Creme ($24.95) is created to calm, soothe and protect the delicate skin around your baby’s bottom.

Usually when you see a tag that says ‘Made in India’ you are left wondering (or rather worrying) about the conditions the product is made in, but not at Summer Child. These stunning Baby Cot Quilts ($95) are made by the talented Mukesh and his brothers in their family business in Jaipur, India. They are paid a fair wage to create this beautiful, high quality bed linen which is block printed by hand, now that’s a quilt with a story.

When I moved to Australia I was surprised to see that bath mitts are so hard to get here, everyone just uses the ‘wipes’. I have never gotten used to them and bath mitts are so much more practical, especially for little hands. Kids would most certainly love sliding their hands in these Organic Bath Mitts ($13.99) from Breganwood Organics, how cute are they? There are six different designs available in store.
