Tea Collection's Organic Layette: Dress baby in ultimate luxury

Tea Collection counts some of Hollywood’s most stylish celebrity babies among its clientele, including the ultimate toddler fashionista, herself — Suri Cruise. The 22-month-old daughter of actors Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise was spotted in Tea during her whirlwind tour of Europe last summer, and she’s hardly alone: Heaven Rain Charvet, 13-months, twins Darby and Sullivan Dempsey, 12 1/2-months, and Rowan Henchy, 4 1/2 are all devotees of Tea and Daily Tea, a sister label.

Tea Collection’s layette has always been crisp, classy and kept with the company’s global mindset. But they topped even themselves in February when they introduced their new line of organic cotton layette pieces. First-time celebrity-moms-to-be like Jessica Alba and Nicole Kidman, take note: The ultimate in new baby luxury awaits you!

Available in both pearl pink and sky blue versions of a fabric called ‘Hoshi,’ a small check pattern inspired by ancient Japanese textiles, the layette pieces include a romper ($35), a bubble ($35, shown below), a jacket set ($45, shown left) and a bodysuit ($25).

We tested the romper and bodysuit in the blue Hoshi print, and I can honestly say that I don’t think Sam has ever worn anything so gentle on his skin. Just as Tea promised, the fabric has softened with every machine wash. But, unlike so many layette items, our samples haven’t become stretched out with each successive use. Besides being so incredibly soft, the fabric is just a perfect weight. It makes a great layering piece in the winter and will also no doubt be comfortable during the warmer months. The Romper comes with four mother of pearl front buttons and five hidden diaper snaps, the bodysuit features double-wrap kimono styling and contrasting trim, the bubble also features a kimono style with a skirted bottom while the jacket suit offers side snaps for easy wardrobe changes, and a fully encased pull-on pant.

The organic layette items are made of a natural-fiber fabric that is pesticide and fertilizer free. Tea is "dedicated to creating organic styles that are high-quality, beautiful, good for the baby and the environment," says Emily Meyer, co-founder and chief creative officer of the label. On all four counts, Tea comes through with flying colors. The new organic layette pieces are available in specialty stores nationwide, and on Tea’s website.
