Recognising and wholeheartedly supporting the very apparent shift in customer awareness of eco and sustainable products, Mantis World has introduced 15 brand new styles across its ranges, all with a focus on sustainability, style and the demands on the decorator.
The brand has pledged to use only sustainable fibres by 2021 and together with the exciting new introductions, are already making large steps towards their goal by transitioning many existing styles to using organic cotton rather than conventional.
Babybugz, the babywear brand for children from 0-3 months up to 2-3 years, has been enjoying high level growth already but the team are determined to continue to delight customers with newness in terms of product. The “Denim Jeanius”, Baby Rocks collection of 4 certified 100% organic denim baby products have carefully researched in terms of responsible manufacture and environmental appeal. The products offer decorators opportunity and optimum space to embellish, print, applique or embroider. Each and every style features a tear off label to offer easiest possible re-branding and, very much as seen in retail denimwear, has contrast, orange-coloured stitching.
Much of the success in babywear has been seen in the own-brand & private label sector as facilitated by e-tailing and so credibility of styling is paramount. The Baby Rocks Denim Jacket (style ref BZ53), for example, has a plain back; free from panelling to offer a good area for personalisation. The front of the jacket still features all the panelling that is to be expected but done so by stitch detail rather than cut and sew to avoid any bumpy seams that decorators find troublesome – and it even features waistband and cuff tabs with nickel-free poppers. Both the trousers ( BZ54) and adjustable dungarees (BZ56) are free from centre seams to afford the best decoration potential, with the bib (BZ55) providing a fuss-free but equally as on-trend option for further gift set and personalisation potential. Completing the “What’s New” selection within Babybugz is the too-cute “Little Hat with Ears” (BZ51); a pull on cap with, as the title would suggest, two ears, and the 100% organic cotton Breton Top (BZ52); a long sleeved, classic striped style that’s totally on trend and that also can be matched to similar styles in Mantis World’s kids and adult ranges so customers can enjoy the same look and feel from 3-6 months up to grown-up size XXL.
Following on from the Baby Breton in both size and styling, is the brand-new Breton tops for kids (HM84 and MK84). In 100% organic cotton and in sizes 2-3 years up to 12+, it’s a carefully considered classic brought bang up to date with great potential in the own-brand and e-tailing sector.
