What initially drew me to SimplyChickie was the cutest women and baby separates offered using 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. Darling poems and cute tag lines that made me giggle and feel safe for my baby’s sensitive skin. After diving into the story behind SimplyChickie you’ll see it’s a brand inspired by a brave journey.
Gwendolyn the creator of SimplyChickie was diagnosed with breast cancer at the same time she found out she was pregnant. This inspired her to make healthy lifestyle changes right down to her clothing. Once Gwendolyn found out about how chemically intensive growing conventional cotton is a seed was planted to start an eco-friendly brand. "It’s important to pay attention to what you put in your body, and also on your body--especially your baby because a baby's skin is very porous.”
Hence the idea of SimplyChickie was born to protect her daughter, herself, women, and other little ones from being exposed to the harsh chemicals in conventional cotton. “ I knew for sure I was going to do everything in my power to ensure my little girl was as safe as I could make her. Since baby skin is very porous, I created an organic cotton clothing line for babies that not only did I know would be safe for my Elizabeth and all other children who wore it”
SimplyChickie uses 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. This means their isn’t a single ounce of synthetically produced pesticides or fertilizers being used. Her clothing is also made in the USA. Her original artwork and funny tag lines are designed by Gwendolyn herself and screen printed with eco-friendly, water- based dyes. Her inspiration: “I craft all of my designs based on inspiration that is sparked from interacting with my daughter.”
Her mission at SimplyChickie is “to share a positive outlook coupled with a healthy dose of laughter every day.”
I think she’s fulfilled this and much more.
