Sustainable Fashion Brand of the Month: Hust & Claire

Family, Fashion

This month, I’d like to introduce you to a brand that I’ve been a fan of since Baby N was born. I simply loved their Scandinavian look and design. Their clothes are of high quality and very durable.

Even better when I found out about their sustainability and ethical approach. So here are a couple of more information for you and since it’s not easy to pick only 5 pieces, I made two categories: girls and boys!

Name of the brand: Hust & Claire

Founded: Scandinavia in 1975

Philosophy:

It is our mission to produce clothes that make fashion-conscious women and children comfortable. Our vision is to produce clothes on a sustainable basis and create a company we are proud of.

Sustainable certificates:A

  • SA8000 certification¬†

These two are essentially the only certificates to be found on their webpage. However they have published their CSR goals which include initiatives for their employees and goals about their suppliers signing to their restricted chemical program.

Some interesting facts about the brand:

  • Hust and Claire is a family-owned business in the second generation
  • They are donating children clothing to seven different charities.

What you should know when you gave birth

Family, Feminism

Giving birth to a human being – a truly unforgettable and special experience for a family. About 18 months ago I experienced this wonder. During pregnancy I did read a lot about the current development of my baby and I did a bit of research on certain topics I was interested in, such as breastfeeding, bonding, how to calm a crying baby etc.

Once we came home and our everyday life started as a small family, I ended up reading way more about anything related to my baby. Be it sleeping, eating, pooping, I used the internet trying to get as much information as possible from women who have been in a similar situation as me. In this time I also talked a lot with my fellow mamas about any issues we had. In retrospect I think there were couple of topics I did not think about, so here’s what you might want to prepare for:

What motherhood has taught me pt. 3

Family

Today I’m a mom since 16 months and 5 days. It is the most intense time I’ve lived so far. My days have never been fuller with to-do’s but also never been more filled with tiny moments of joy. Here’s what I learned in the past months about motherhood:

DIY: Gallery wall of memories

Family

On these cold and snowy/rainy days I love looking at pictures from last summer and the summer before and the summer before, wishing it would get warmer soon. Now I believe we still got a month or two to go before the temperatures will allow us to drop those heavy winter jackets. Until then, I got a little inspiration for you how to display your memories in your home!

5 things every parent should be thankful for

Family

2019 is already a little bit over a week old and amongst my new year’s resolution to be more conscious about my consumption, I want to be more thankful for my life. “Be the energy that you want to attract” is a good mantra for this. In the past I used to see some of my relationships rather negative and I want to stop judging and nagging about people, I believe with practice one can learn that. Additionally I think that positivity can be contagious, so I hope to catch it and to spread it!
