It was super important to me that all of our items be ethically made. What exactly does this mean? It means that all of sewers, cutters, and everyone else that works on our products be paid a fair living wage in safe and comfortable conditions. ALL of our items were made in the cutest little old school factory located in the heart of Highland Park, Los Angeles.
All of our bedding (cribs sheets, swaddles, and wash cloths) were made from 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton, grown and spun in the USA, and printed in Los Angeles. We also make some clothing items out of the remnants of this fabric. For the remainder of our clothing, we used locally sourced deadstock fabric.
Making all of our items in the USA is a big deal to me. I wanted to make sure every single person that works with joonbird works in safe conditions and is paid a fair living wage, so when I happened to find a factory right in my own neighborhood of Highland Park, I was beyond thrilled. Not only do I get to walk to my factory all the time to check in, but I also love the fact that I am supporting a local business. Our little factory has been hiding in plain sight in Highland Park for nearly 40 years and we are very happy to be working with them. Also, they are cool with my toddler running around, so that’s a plus.
