I am so very excited to share with you a cute little parcel that landed on my doorstep last week from tommy & lottie! I was on my way out when I noticed a parcel and I just had to open it before leaving the house.
I came across tommy & lottie whilst shopping for Scarlett’s winter wardrobe and noticed that it was a brand based in St Albans. I love to support local brands so I was so excited to review the Babies Badger Long Sleeve T-Shirt.
I was very impressed with the way the t-shirt was delivered to me. It was carefully wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with cute stickers. I almost didn’t want to open it but I was too excited to see what was inside. I also received postcards of the woodland animal designs in the outer packaging.
The first thing other than the unique, creative designs that attracted me to these t-shirts was the fact that they are ethically and sustainably produced using the best quality and softest 100% cotton and are designed and screen printed in Britain.
This is definitely the case with the t-shirt I received. To touch it felt so soft and you know the feeling when you put on a really soft jumper and you just want to melt into it – yeah I wanted to do just that! I knew it was going to be cosy for Scarlett to wear as the days are getting colder.
I chose a long sleeve t-shirt with a Bristish badger print on the front as I am not very brave with colours and I thought this would team nicely with some jeans or leggings. This is priced at £20 and UK delivery is FREE! I did think it was a little pricey but when you feel the material and you see the love that has gone into it I think it is totally justifiable.
The t-shirts come in four different sizes from 3-6 months – 18-24 months.We went for 6 – 12 months and it fits well considering shes still in 3-6 months clothes!
Scarlett has very sensitive skin like myself so I always wash her clothes before she can wear them. I am always a little worried about doing this as with some brands it causes the clothing to change shape. This is not the case with tommy & lottie products. If anything the t-shirt looks exactly the same now as it did when it arrived!
I love the thought that goes into these t-shirts by Katie (the founder) and her reasoning behind the materials she uses. Taken from the website: ‘Ethical and sustainable, this includes traceable vertical production meaning that the cotton is grown, produced, manufactured in one place and not all over the world. No harmful chemicals or dyes are used in any of the processes of production. Also ensuring that employees from local communities are given jobs so they can support their families and live a quality of life whilst being treated fairly within the work place.’
