Kicky Pants Bamboo

June 20, 2012

Bamboo used to mean “pandas,” but it’s migrated away from the Asian bear market and is everywhere. With good reason: it’s a sustainable crop + it can be turned into unbelievably soft fabric. Like, crazy soft. It’s almost offensive how soft it is. It’s soft like baby bunnies’ fur – except in prints and dots and with little bicycles on it. At least at Kicky Pants anyway. Not on actual bunnies. That would be weird.

Any expectant mom will be delighted when she picks up one of the Kicky Pants pieces out of your gift box at her shower. It’s like a heavier, machine-washable version of silk. (Did I mention how soft it is?) The company has graduated out of the boutique phase, so they have tons of options in different styles: pajama sets, tops, bottoms, dresses, onesies/bodysuits, plus stuff for older kids. I love that everything has a kind of swingy look to it but they haven’t gone over into, “Primary colors for everyone!” with their patterns.

Oh – one more thing: they have pants. That might seem obvious since it’s, um, in their name, so they better have pants, right? I know I keep going on and on about how it’s impossible to find pants for newborns. Well, Kicky Pants is one of the places you can bless a new baby with a top and bottom set that isn’t a pajama, thank you very much.

Pajamas and layette sets, about $34. Pants from $20very adorable hoodies from $40 all at KickyPants.com (Also available on Amazon or Diapers.com)
