Spring Cleaning: Home Textile Edition

Spring Cleaning: Home Textile Edition

We are committed to setting and upholding the strictest environmental, social and safety standards for our products and the families that use them.   When we started zestt and began learning more about textile production, we were shocked to learn that many of the “soft” fabrics in our homes were just doused in chemical softeners or made from synthetic fibers that were bad for the environment.   As moms ourselves, we understand the importance of creating a haven for your family that is safe and toxin free.

Natural Swap: Using Fruit & Vegetable Based Egg Dyes

Natural Swap: Using Fruit & Vegetable Based Egg Dyes

With busy toddlers at home, we are always looking for safe, chemical free alternatives to holiday traditions!  That's why we were so excited to find out that we could dye eggs using natural fruit and vegetable dyes.  If your kids are like ours, half of the dye ends up all over them, so we were thrilled to be using something that was completely non-toxic and it was a great way to use up some produce that was nearing the end of its shelf life in the fridge.

Our Travel Essentials

Our Travel Essentials

January means it's road season for our team.  We'll be in Atlanta, New York, Seattle and Dallas over the course of the next few weeks sharing the Spring collection with wholesale customers from around the world.  It's our favorite time of year (and often times the most stressful).  It's always energizing to share months of creative and logistical work with our customers, but it's also a busy few weeks of airplanes, hotel rooms + eating out.
