About Little Boar

Filling in the gap for great sustainable basics in excellent quality, the children’s clothing brand, Little Boar, makes dressing your children consciously yet stylish and wonderfully simple. Using sustainable solutions in every method of production, each gorgeous piece is made only from 100% organic cotton and absolutely no harmful chemicals. Designed to be hand-me-downs that will last for several generations, their clothes are easy wearing, durable and have proven they can be washed again and again.

 

Their ‘All Time Favorites’ are basic oriented and re-usable on little siblings, cousins or friends, but still pretty and soft. Their ‘Slow Fashion Cozywear Collection’ includes eight styles in four colors, enough to build a perfectly wearable wardrobe!

 

Predominantly known for clothing essentials, the brand gradually wants to develop other products such as accessories, games and puzzles, stationery, gift boxes, and baby equipment, all of which have one thing in common: their Little Boar, Marli! The name for their label represents a connection to nature and their homeland, the wild boar acting as a symbol of Berlin and the Brandenburg forests.

Brand Ethos

Little Boar stands for buying once, buying well, and passing it on. With a commitment to choosing organic materials and keeping things as sustainable as possible, they inject plenty of fun and colours into their designs. When buying Little Boar, parents should feel good about the choices for their children.

Brand sustainability

For Little Boar, sustainability encompasses many things: reducing the environmental impact of their production processes, cutting out harmful chemicals, ensuring ethical guidelines are in place when it comes to safe working practices in their factories, and workers getting paid fairly to do so. But when it comes to dressing kids, for them sustainability means quality above all else.

 

Gentle on the skin and kinder to the planet, Little Boar’s non-seasonal collections are sustainably manufactured in Portugal from 100% organic cotton. This ensures minimum impact on the soil and better conditions for farmers. Packaging also comes in recyclable polybags. Designed with longevity in mind, most Little Boar pieces belong to their Never Out Of Stock (NOOS) program and function as all year round essentials!

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
