Product Feature - Hannah from Moo Bibs
I am so excited about this brand! Once you have a read about Hannah from Moo Bibs I think you'll see why. Not only is she a mama in business but she has the same strong ideals as Wild & Free Boxes which makes us a match made in heaven! Plus her daughter is ADORABLE (you'll see in a second!).
Please tell me a little about you and your business?
Hey there! My names Hannah and I own and run Moo Bibs! I’m a mother to one, a fitness instructor and have a bachelor in fashion design.
Moo Bibs is an Australian brand that focuses on sourcing the highest quality and ethically produced materials from across the world. Using only the very best Organic Cotton with the GOTS certification (Global Organic Textile Standard) and Oeko-Tex 100 certified Cotton. So you know your babes are safe from any harmful chemicals that may have been used in the farming or production process.
Why is the organic lifestyle important to you?
Studying a bachelor in Fashion Design isn’t just drawing and sewing pretty dresses. There’s a lot of theory and you learn a lot about the effects fashion has on our environment, from the beginning to the end of a garments cycle. Organic is just one aspect of what’s important, but it’s a pretty important one. It’s important to me to take what steps I can and help make a change in what we consume and leave behind.
What inspires you?
I love designing and creating, and more then anything else I love my beautiful baby girl. Those two combined is all the inspiration I need for Moo Bibs!
What made you want to be part of Wild & Free boxes?
The concept is just brilliant! Beautiful products going out to soon to be or new mums at such a special time of their life, why wouldn’t I want to be apart of that!
What is one organic product you just can’t live without (excluding your own gorgeous products of course!)?
Hmm, well I do love the Organic Coconut Oil we use for our babe. But my new Wild and Free Baby Balm might be take it’s place!
Let’s get back to your business – how did you find the process of creating a business that was organic? How do you ensure your products are truly organic?
It’s important that I know exactly what I’m getting, so it’s just as important to make sure the supplier is a reputable one. I make sure that the materials have a reputable certification like GOTS (Global Organic Textiles Standard) or ACO (Australian Certified Organic). The rest of the materials I use are Oeko-Tex certified. These guys have a vigorous testing criteria in place to make sure materials are free of any harmful chemicals. You can see there criteria on their website here.
What makes your brand unique?
The high quality materials, the beautiful prints / colours, the use of French Terry for a lightweight absorbent backing, and all products are handmade to order.
Have you got any exciting plans for your business this year (maybe an exciting new print design or a new product?)
Well we have recently expanded our range from just bibs to Bunny Rugs and Nursing Cloths as well, which are all available now for pre-order and will be available from mid October. We also have some amazing new fabrics coming in so watch out for those too!
Do you have any tips for our readers who are transitioning into a more organic and natural lifestyle?
Read everything. One thing companies are really good at is making you think you are purchasing Organic but they’re using ‘Green Washing’ techniques in their marketing and labelling to further their gain but not the environments.
Lastly… Do you have a quote you live by?
“The only impossible journey is the one you never begin.” ~ Anthony Robbins
You can do anything. Don’t wait around for the perfect time because there is no prefect time. The time is now!
