Bubble London always opens our eyes to a wealth of beautiful brands, but as Green Ambassador we’ve always got a soft spot for the eco brands going a step further, making sustainable and organic products.
Last month we announced Munchkins Muscles as our winner of the Green Ambassador award of January’s Bubble show. Munchkin Muscles are trailblazing in the creation of eco and ethically-made children’s sportswear. The premium activewear brand ensure that everything from the certified organic fabrics to fair trade manufacturing to biodegradable packaging is done in the most efficient and sustainable way.
As usual, competition at Bubble was fierce and we had a few other favourites that could taken the top eco brand spot. Here are some other eco brands who we’re certainly excited to see more from in the next year.
A stalwart favourite, Stitch & Story showcased their knitting kit collection for the first time at the baby brand show and were thrilled by the uptake. Using only 100% merino wool, Stitch & Story are promoting wool as a sustainable and eco-friendly fabric. Their beautiful knit kits make fantastic gifts or non-intimidating starter sets for people who wouldn’t usually knit.

Barcelona-based Suindiatic are also making waves in the eco brand world with quirky and fun geometric animal prints. Great for adding splashes of colour to your child’s wardrobe without going over the top. Suindiatic make clothes according to demand to reduce waste and pressure on the environment – fashionably known as ‘slow fashion’.
Who can resist Mini-La-Mode’s Peter Rabbit & Friends collection? Pima cotton babywear hand embroidered with the much loved rabbit and eco-friendly too! We couldn’t ask for more. The pima cotton is super soft against baby’s skin and breathable too!
Freya Lillie are making some of the most adorable organic baby outfits out there. Their garments are really simple (which certainly adds to their charm!) and are made gender free and sustainable. All the clothes are handmade in the UK of organic cottons, while the buttons are made from wood or coconut shells.

Last year’s winner, TANE Organics returned to Bubble this year with a new line to add to their eco collection. The luxury eco brand have introduced darker colours into the mix, as well as playing with different layers and textures. The organic fibres used to create these clothes are pesticide free, use low impact dyes, and last much longer than non-organic fibres.
Bebe Bombom is one our of go-to brands for luxe babywear with guaranteed quality and sustainability. The brand create long-lasting products that are soft and gentle against baby’s skin. Bebe Bombom always make environmentally low impact choices in order to reduce their carbon footprint and produce garments sustainably.
Last but not least, Barn Of Monkeys remain on the eco scene with their durable, organic (and effortlessly cool) kidswear. Barn of Monkeys believe in eco responsibility and artistry – and that’s exactly why we love them.
