Greetings! Let's get personal

Whitney here, mother of the adorable Coco and cofounder of Nawi Kids. Today I embark on my first experience based blog... Going to get personal guys. Here at Nawi we are one big Dino family. 

Today was Cocos weekly swim lesson and a great opportunity for my first mommy blog post.

For those of you who have not read our Nawi story. Our company began with my predicament over lack of options for little girls interested in cars, planes, and DINOSAURS. Well here's a perfect example. I've never seen a girls bathing suit with anything that would capture Coco's interest. So here she is looking cute as ever in her Lightning McQueen swim trunks. 

My heart is filled with happiness that my daughter is unique and knows what she wants. My hope is that our society addresses our youth in a less sexually segregated way. Why can't girls like cars? Coco can't be the only one.

Needless to say she had a wonderful swim lesson with the amazing Teacher Deb regardless of what she had on her body. Watch out Michael Phelps! Excited to share my little mommy tid bit with you and looking forward to writing more lifestyle post pertaining to all that is motherhood.

Are you wondering how these cuties are made?

It's not everyday that brands let guests in behind the scenes. How are things made? Who made them? Where? What material? What's going on? 

We recently just visited our manufacturers in the heart of cozy Marina Del Rey and decided to share some snapshots with you! Let the touring begin.

I spy with my little eye... something blue. See that fabric there? We use sustainable materials such as wool and cotton. We also use fabrics and fillers made from recycled materials such as plastic bottles. Super neat.

One of those Buddys got an eye! 

Adorable tops in the making. 

Happy peeps making awesome products. It's that smile that puts the extra spark into every product :D

"Nawi Gives Back" is one of the many ways we cultivate a happy work environment. We here at Nawi, provide educational funding for family members of anyone involved in the manufacturing of Nawi Kids products. 

End product? A handful of cuddly tender care.

Today, Nawi Kids products are made in Los Angeles with a focus on sustainability (toys are stuffed with recycled plastic bottles and everything is constructed within a 10 mile radius to reduce carbon emissions).
