"I just fell in love with your line. Anyway, I bought a pair of trousers from you, and I wish I had known about this clothing sooner. I would have had my baby in it every day."
- happy ex-pat shopping at Beibamboo/Little Copenhagen, Museokatu 36, Helsinki.

"The Beibamboo clothing line is made of - you got it - bamboo! You wouldn't believe how soft (and eco-friendly) it is. All of the clothing is made to feel extra soft against baby's skin; even the tags and zippers are on the outside, rather than the inside. The clothes are very sweet, simple and easy to put on and take off. The company has won several design awards in Europe recently, and they are trying to make a presence in the US market."
"Beibamboo is a Scandinavian baby-clothing brand that boasts a collection of cleverly combined basics designed for the ultimate comfort of newborns and babies"

“At the Baby Fair I came to the stand in question! The peppy and well-informed product demonstrators didn’t leave anything up to speculation and I got to know a whole lot about these garments. Besides it is nice when you get to feel the clothes yourself. I always thought that I would purchase these Beibamboo garments if we were to have more children. And now that we are expecting a baby this summer I know exactly what I am going to do ” (continues…)

“ Though I carried home bags full of stuff from the fair, the best part for me was getting to know some interesting companies (my favourite being Beibamboo) as well as the info counter of the association for reusable cloth diapers.” 15.4.2011
“After we got out of the hospital we rented a Vaavi baby bed. There was a brochure of Beibamboo attached to it. We immediately ordered the 40-50 cm size set and now we have rented a new set of 70-80 cm. It is great that you can rent baby clothes and that they are well made and of high quality. I recommend. ”
Maarit, Espoo, mother of a six-month-old boy
“Beibamboo baby garments – made out of bamboo fibre – originated from an idea of Nina Ignatius as she was examining baby clothes in the maternity ward. A little baby girl was born to her family and the new mother was wondering who on earth designs these baby clothes with thick seams and big tags that chafe the baby’s sensitive skin.
Nina Ignatius was not fully prepared for maternity because the baby was born premature. Neither did she have any experience in the fashion industry. But what she did have, was a bunch of ideas.”
Optio magazine, March 2011 (page 9)
“These clothes work perfectly for our twin sons! They are easy to dress and they are really comfortable and soft. During the first months you need a lot of clothes and it would be silly to buy them in such quantities. In spite of the size difference of my sons the same size fit them both because the pant legs could be folded for one and the other could wear socks. We received the clothes conveniently by mail carried to our door on a predetermined date. They were ready for use, no washing needed. Every little thing that makes life easier for a family of multiple babies is a big help ;)”
Sonja, mother of twin boys, Helsinki
“The rental service of Beibamboo is perfect for our family. There is no need to worry about storing and recycling, and the baby always has well-fitting clothes to wear. I recommend.”
Mother of Otava
“Special attention should be given to a fairly new shop, Beibamboo, which specializes in baby clothing. There was an article about it in the latest issue of Vauva magazine (2/2011). I want to mention Beibamboo, because they have a special collection for premature babies. It comes in size 40 cm and it has been designed to avoid any irritation on the baby’s soft and fragile skin. The garments have no side seams and the tags for washing instructions are placed on the outside. They are all made of organic bamboo fibre. Beibamboo clothes can be purchased but also rented which is a wonderful idea since the smallest clothes do not last long on fast-growing babies. As for tiny premature babies, they may wear those 40 cm clothes for months.”
“If you are familiar with bamboo underwear, you will be delighted with this! Beibamboo is a Finnish company (whose products are also made in Finland) that manufactures clothes for babies. Their practical solutions are so clever that it brings you into a good mood …”
Baby Clothes Can Also Be Rented 24.11.2010 wrote Lina
“Babies outgrow their clothes quickly and that is why it may seem non-ecological to buy them. As an alternative, baby clothes can be rented. Beibamboo, a Finnish company, rents out baby clothes up to the size 80 cm. The material of these garments is 50 % organic bamboo fibre and 50 % cotton. They come in one colour: natural off-white. There are three different items available: bodysuit, pyjamas and pants and a selection of sizes 50-60 cm (0-3 months), 60-70 cm (3-7 months) and 70-80 cm (7-16 months).
Getting Acquainted With Beibamboo, Tuesday Oct. 5th by Tilkku
“Last week Beibamboo was looking for a baby of Manna’s size for testing their clothes. I told them that my daughter would volunteer. It had been just recently that I had been acquainted with the company and I considered their business idea brilliant. On Friday we visited the founder of the company and spent some time chatting and examining model pyjamas. Manna had a great time: she would giggle and fumble about and wouldn’t stay still for a second. It is very seldom I see her that excited in the company of strangers. Usually she is pretty reserved at first and only loosens up after a while.
As a reward Manna got a pair of Beibamboo pants, which fit her perfectly. I love off-white and I dress my daughter in it as often as possible. During her first months Manna was mostly wearing white, but it is not very practical anymore as she has started to crawl all over the floor. But when we go to town she may wear something more delicate. These pants are not only soft but also easy to wash and quick to dry, so that they can be worn by a crawling baby. They also have extra padding on the knees. I warmly recommend these products whether purchased or rented. If your relatives or friends have not recycled their kids’ clothes to you it is a brilliant idea to rent at least the smaller sizes, because the baby really grows out of them before you notice.”
The Rental Boom Goes On, August 13th, 2010
The rental-service boom has spread from designer handbags to ecologically produced baby clothes. A new Finnish Internet shop called Beibamboo rents out and sells baby clothes made of organic bamboo fibre. Their selection consists of pants, bodysuits and pyjamas. The company wants to offer an easy alternative to the short lifecycle of baby clothes: products ordered from the Internet will be delivered to your home.
