Amber Pumpkin offer an impressive range of eco teething toys, natural latex teethers and comforters to help your little one get through the teething stage. Lots of these are sure to become favourites and much loved.
All Under the Nile toys are hand crafted, made and stuffed with organic cotton. Most of the toys on the market are stuffed with "fluff" that can cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems in babies. All of our toys are toy tested according to the ASTM United States government standard as well as to the EN1 European standard.
Our dyeing process uses metal-free or vegetable dyes. Accessories such as buttons and zippers are made from organically friendly elements such as wood, shell or nickel-free metals.
Under the Nile is certified to the Global Organic Textile Stadard (GOTS). GOTS is recognized as the leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers worldwide. It defines high level environmental criteria along the entire supply chain of organic textiles and requires compliance with social criteria as well. Under the Nile has two certifications: one for our manufacturing process, and one for our distribution. All Under the Nile hangtags feature the GOTS logo.
All Under the Nile products are Fair Trade. We exemplify fair trade principles, practicing fairness towards all those involved in the entire production chain. A fair price is paid to all workers, from cotton growers to weavers. Our partnership with Sekem Farm ensures that all of our employees work in a comfortable environment that includes open space, sufficient light and fresh air, along with exercise activities during the day. Two organic meals are served to all our workers in Egypt on a daily basis.
In addition, all of the workers who create Under the Niles products receive full service health care that includes emergency service, dentistry and even surgery. The children of our workers are also offered schooling from K-12th grade. Without this school many children would never be educated.
