Are you alerted to common industrial chemicals such as BPA, lead, pthalate which can cause serious health problems in manufacturing laminated fabric?


Make sure you have chosen the safe laminate fabric which has stated with “CPSIA compliant” to make childrenswear, especially for ages 12 or under (who are more likely to have allergic problems).


The following designer fabric brands like Robert Kaufman, Riley Blake or Alexander Henry have got their official safety proof by testing their laminate fabrics against the CPSIA requirements under US law.


So keep your children safe with your handmade totes, raincoats, baby bibs, playmats, bags etc.
