Our mission here at The urbanmoms.ca Marketplace is to help mom-based businesses to succeed by sharing their stories with our members. By doing so, we also help to bring you, our members, to businesses that offer products and services you want and need. This week, we’re pleased to bring you Nancy’s Story:
In November, my husband and I launched an online boutique, Kai Kids, selling eco-friendly clothing and accessories for babies, toddlers, new moms and moms-to-be. From stainless steel sippy cups to soy onesies, bamboo baby blankets to breast pads, crib sheets to natural diaper creams, we’ve got everything parents need to raise baby green, and a few treats for mamas too! We carry sexy maternity and nursingwear made from non-toxic soy fibre and lyocell – healthy and funky designs you won’t find anywhere else in Canada. All of our lines are either certified Fair Trade or ethically manufactured, and we aim to carry as many made-in-Canada products as we can find. We named our store after our first son Kai, now almost 3, who inspired us to get into business to provide cute, affordable, non-toxic clothing and baby products to Canadian families. We aim to help you dress your children in cute, comfortable clothes made from toxin-free fabrics using low-impact dyes and the softest natural fibres including organic cotton, soy and bamboo. As parents, we’ve tried our lines on our own children and believe the natural non-toxic products that we sell are better for the health of your children and the health of the planet in which they will grow. Some of our products are not carried anywhere else in Canada.
Some of our innovative products are:
- soft, super-absorbent bamboo nursing pads
- organic cotton baby clothing with a roomier cut designed to accommodate bulkier cloth diapers
- sexy lyocell (wood pulp) maternitywear
- cute, hip organic slogan T-shirts and onesies (ie. My Dad Recycles More Than Your Dad)
Kai Kids: Gentle on your family, gentle on the earth
