Go back to the 70-80s with Bobo Choses. Children's clothing with fun prints and a vintage look. The Spanish brand aims to give the child comfort and happiness. In such a way that the child can develop in complete freedom.
Bobo Choses not only cares about the well-being of the child, but also the well-being of our planet. That's why the brand does its best to be as sustainable as possible. The collections have a vintage look through 'garment dye'. This means that they knit GOTS-certified white cotton, then cut and stitch in Portugal and after that the almost finished garment is coloured in OekoTex-certified 'dye houses' in Portugal. The brand is gradually replacing the materials for the durable versions, such as organic cotton and recycled polyester. For the SS20 collection 62% is made from GOTS-certified organic cotton, for the baby collection this is 66%.
58% of the cotton yarn of the SS21 is GOTS-certified cotton. Of the SS21 baby collection 92% of the cotton is GOTS-certified and for the kid’s collection it is 88%. The brand is slowly substituting its materials for sustainable alternatives, like bio cotton, recycled cotton, recycled polyester, linen, cupro and LENZING™ Lyocell. Recycled cotton is used for the denim pieces.
The outdoors clothes are treated with a water resistant product from BIONIC FINISH ECO and the polybags contain biodegradable plastic. Even more, the clothing is either GOTS or Oeko-tex certified. This way the garments are completely free of chemicals and therefore safe to wear.
The past five years Bobo Choses decreased their carbon footprint by 7.4% and the water consumption by 30%. The brand is constantly taking steps to make their ecological impact as little as possible.
The brand works with a Code of Conduct that all the suppliers it works with must comply with. They regularly visit their suppliers to check on this.
Bobo Choses also likes to work locally, as 98% of the SS21 collection is produced in Spain and Portugal. Sneakers are made in Slovakia.
Bobo choses works together with the Red Cross and some other social organisations to help families and children in need. They work for example on summer camps.
Yes! Bobo Choses answered our questions about the production chain. For example, we know that the textile is GOTS-certified, but the final product does not pass the final garment-dye step. We got all certificate numbers through and could verify each factory. The brand gets 90% for Transparency.
Unintentionally perhaps, but because 66% of the 'garment dye' collection is made of GOTS organic cotton, the brand also uses cotton sewing thread. Often the wax labels are made of Polyester so that they remain white in a dye bath. This means that, with the exception of the labels, the garment is almost made of one material and is therefore easier to recycle after a series of wearings.
The brand launched their ‘iconic’ collection in 2021, a line that is even more ecologically responsible produced with upcycled materials from previous collections, recycled cotton, natural dye and of which old designs and prints are reused. The clothing of Bobo Choses is so timeless that it can be passed on from generation to generation.
