Soften Up to Melopima’s Organic Baby Basics

Once you go Peruvian pima cotton, it’s hard to go back


While pregnant, you (sensibly) vowed not to spend money on fancy clothes for a baby to spit up on. Then his glorious, beatific angel face promptly shattered your willpower.

Consider Melopima, a new collection of cotton basics in sizes newborn to 24 months that are as soft as we’ve touched. Founder and mama of three Elia Gressin combines the silky pima cotton of her native Peru with the modern aesthetic of France, her adopted home.


Simple bodysuits beg to be bummed around in, while quilted outerwear creates a polar vortex-proof cocoon — both come in the line’s signature palette of white, rose, blue, gray, or fuchsia. One look at the hooded terry robe and you’ll decide your tot needs a postbath poncho. Same goes for the constellation bibs in connect-the-stars patterns (duck, heart, and crown). Blankets, towels, mittens, and hats round out the collection.

The eco-conscious line uses water-based dyes, is manufactured in fair trade conditions by a Peruvian family, and makes your little extra cuddly.

As if he wasn’t already impossible to resist.

Available at melopima.com, $21-$85.
