A organic babywear company that uses the profits of each sale to tackle hunger and malnutrition in India.
Babywear with a belief
Darlo was founded in 2013 by Chloe and Jim, a couple who wanted to design and sell comfortable and organic babywear that could support children in less fortunate situations.
Chloe and Jim set up Darlo to pursue a shared belief – that everyone should have the right to food, shelter, health and education. They integrate this belief and the concept of ‘a little giving’ in every aspect of their business, from the material they choose to the labour they use and how they allocate their profit.
All of Darlo’s products are produced in factories that have been certified as environmentally and socially responsible by the Global Organic Textile Standard. For every cotton baby comfy they sell they donate a week’s worth of school meals to children in India.
Food is a right, not a luxury
Hunger should not get in the way of anyone’s education. Darlo works with the Akshaya Patra Foundation to ensure this does not happen. Set up in 2000, the Akshaya Patra provides school meals to 1.4 million Indian children everyday, with the goal of feeding 5 million children by 2020.
Darlo donates a share of its profits to Akshaya Patra, as well as promoting them through marketing, social media and events. Currently, each product sold pays for one child’s school meals for a week but Chloe and Jim want to go further, aiming to feed a whole school by the end of 2016.
