about us

Our vision is to create stylish yet sustainable baby clothes, fairly made at a fair price, because we believe all babies deserve the very best.

100% certified organic cotton

why organic cotton?

Our cotton is grown and processed from seed to garment in harmony with nature.  Soft, strong and sustainable, it is the perfect fabric for your baby's first clothes.

Our cotton is organically grown by individual farmers and co-operatives in small villages in India.  The cotton flowers are processed into yarn then fabric without the use of any harmful chemicals and the fabric is then printed using water-based dyes which are safe on sensitive baby skin and low impact on the environment.  Our garments are made under fair trade practices which empower local people, especially women, in the process of attaining economic security and freedom.

GOTS-certified. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is a trustworthy, independent and internationally recognized standard for certifying organic textiles. Certification goes beyond pesticide residues - it covers the entire process from the planting of cotton seeds to the labelling and packaging of the final garment. It ensures that your baby's clothes are made in a conscious way which cares for the people who grow our cotton, the people who make our clothes and the earth and it's wildlife, wilderness and resources. It also means that you won't find a trace of harmful chemicals on our clothes.

our story

Hi, My name is Nivi and I’m a mum to a 4 year old girl and recently, a baby boy.  

I have thought about starting an organic baby clothing line ever since my daughter was born in September 2015.  I had always struggled to find good quality baby clothes made from natural fabrics for her eczema prone skin.  When she turned one and I watched her take her first steps, I realized that I needed to be brave too, so I decided that I was going to take my first step with Ziwi Baby! After a year of learning, working and meeting great people, our online store opened in April 2018.

Ziwi Baby is close to my heart – our cotton is organically grown and our clothes are ethically stitched in India – where I grew up as a young child before moving to New Zealand.  We work with a small but socially and environmentally conscious factory which shares our values.  GOTS accreditation goes beyond organic certification and ensures fair labour practices and that no harmful chemicals are used in production from start to finish.  Not only does organic clothing benefit your baby, but also the local community where the cotton is grown benefits from cleaner air, water and soil, and farmers and workers benefit from a safe and fair working environment.  So thank you for making a difference!

My wish is for Ziwi Baby to have a positive impact in some way on everyone involved in the process – farmers, workers, the earth and of course – you!  I hope you love our collection as much as I do and that it makes you and your little one happy. 

If you'd like to get in touch, feel free to email me at hello@ziwibaby.co.nz - I'd love to hear from you!
