156Give the earth a big hug. It’s possible with a little help from earth-friendly Kate Quinn Organics, the Seattle-based clothing company with beautifully simple — and simply beautiful — designs for Baby and Junior (to six years). Kate Quinn’s colorful showroom is now open in South Seattle, and so worth the trip. All of the 100% certified organic items, from onesies and jumpsuits to puff-sleeve blouses and football shirts, come in an array of colors inspired by nature. Our favorites for spring are peony pink, pomegranate, orchid, clover green, and sunshine. Lots of items, including the popular infant sacque ($29.00) and kimono dress ($28.00), come with cool contrasting color trim. You can mix and match, too; the kimono dress is too cute layered with pants ($24.00 – $32.00) and a hoodie ($26.00). Launched in July 2006 (formerly Earth Organic Baby Basics), the business has taken Kate around the world in search of fair trade and sustainable farming practices to support her “vision and hope of a cleaner, kinder earth.” Blankets, bath towels, and bedding complete the line, and skin-care products and a women’s line are in the works. You’ll feel like the Earth is hugging back.
