Is the Mamachic considered organic?
We make the Mamachic with a rayon derived from bamboo which starts out as certified organic by OCIA (The Organic Crop Improvement Association) and the USDA National Organic Program. This ensures that each bamboo stalk is of 100% natural growth and without any chemical pesticides.
After the processing, spinning and knitting techniques that turn these fibers into fabric you feel in your hands, it ceases to be deemed organic. However, it’s Oeko-Tex 100 certified, which ensures that the finished fiber has been tested for any chemicals that may be harmful to a person’s health and has been found to contain no trace chemicals that pose any health threat whatsoever.
Why did you choose bamboo fabric?
We put intense thought into our fabric choice. Not only is our rayon from bamboo jersey (which is mixed with a small percentage of cotton and spandex) supremely durable, it gets luxuriously softer with each wash. It’s moisture-absorbing and moisture-wicking, and there is some talk of its bamboo fibers possessing anti-microbial properties — perfect for caring for baby.
Plus, the bamboo plant is one of the most renewable resources on the planet — it requires no pesticides, fertilizers, and little water. It gives off more oxygen than most comparable timber trees!

Where is the Mamachic made?
We are proud to partner with Opportunity Threads in North Carolina. It is a worker-owned cooperative that takes great pride in paying a living wage and giving back to its local community. We had the pleasure of working closely with their cutters, sewers and handcrafters in creating the most amazingly versatile product you hold in your hands.
