Keep your little one comfy and warm in our handmade sweatshirt and pant set created with luxurious, undyed, Peruvian Native Organic Cotton.
A friendly ethnic bear applique is on the sweatshirt. An homage to the very special textiles used. The pants have a gentle waist elastic for a super comfortable fit, and a sweet feather applique detail.
Our Pakucho cotton sets have amazing benefits:

- Hypoallergenic-Organic and undyed also means this fabric is less processed and as raw and natural as possible. Fewer processes and chemicals means less irritants and the safest fabric for your little one's sensitive skin!
- Hand-brushed fleece lines the inner part of each piece, which will feel super soft to the touch, and will keep your little one cozy and warm.
- The applique is put together from Pakucho cotton pieces left over after fabric cutting. These sets are made with a zero-waste methods.
What is Peruvian Native Cotton? The artisan, Child's Way, uses fabric produced by Naturtex, a Fair Trade certified company. This eco-friendly company uses Pakucho cotton, from the Quechua Incan word for 'brown cotton'. These cottons naturally grow in these colors, so there's no dye at all.
These native, ancient heritage varieties of cotton were almost lost to industrialization and the popularity of the quick and easy white cotton. By supporting our companies, you are directly supporting biodiversity and the amazing heritage of native cottons.
Our collection of Organic Peruvian Native Cotton is handmade for Pan American Apparel in small batches by our thoughtful Peruvian partner Child's Way.
