This knit sweater is OCS certified which ensures that it contains organic fibers. We use the OCS standard when the stricter GOTS Certification is not applicable because garment is made out of a mixture of organic fibers and other sustainable materials such as Modal® or recycled polyester. Since we are working with children’s clothes, the use of organic materials and measures taken for long-term sustainability is of the utmost importance to us. The knit sweater is partially made of environmentally friendly Modal®. The Modal fibers are manufactured using environmentally certified wood from fir and beech trees, which makes the fabric 100 % biodegradable. Modal® is used to replace conventional viscose, which requires harmful chemicals in order to be manufactured. Those chemicals often leak into nature and damage both our health and the environment. This is not the case with Modal®, since the chemicals used are much less harmful, and run through a closed system instead of out into nature. When producing Modal®, much less land area and water is needed compared to the manufacturing process of cotton.
Mini Rodini is a Swedish children’s wear brand that was founded in 2006 by illustrator Cassandra Rhodin as a tribute to all children, their imagination and sense that everything is possible. Mini Rodini takes children seriously with playfulness, meaning it is important that children too have clothes that match their own personality, mood and creativity.
Mini Rodini's vision has always been to make it both easy and exciting for parents to buy better products for their kids in regards to the design as well as environmental and ethical aspects of the production. And while the playful and humorous aesthetics may speak directly to the children, the quality of the products is equally important. A Mini Rodini garment is not only fun to wear or just look at, but is also produced in a way that is kinder to the environment and the people behind it.
At Mini Rodini, they want what they do to matter. They take their ethical and sustainable commitment .very seriously and it will always be the most important factor in Mini Rodini’s growth. It’s not just about getting better at what they do, but wanting the very best and a better world. This commitment affects decision-making at all levels in their organisation, as it is an on-going process that demands an innovative approach to their whole business long-term.
