Piupia – Product Review

Don't miss a thing

I cannot wait any longer. I know our baby hasn’t arrived yet, but I simply have to share these wonderful baby clothes now. It would be nice to have pictures of our baby in them sure, but tough. These need to be shared. 

Piupia is an organic (that’s right) organic clothing company. They sent us these 2 fantastic baby grows to dress Rex up in when he arrives. It’s probably pretty weird a dad getting this excited about baby grows, but in all honesty, I’m pretty excited about the whole having a baby thing. On top of that, having trawled round the various baby cloth shops, I haven’t found something that I am this excited about. No shop I have been to has sold clothes like these. 

The designs are original, fun and quirky. They aren’t tacky with frumpy characters on that remind me of the ‘Care Bears.’ It’s actually quite refreshing to find clothes that aren’t littered with disney or other gimmicks. Some of the designs, I think, are unisex as well. Which is great news if you’re planning another one! 

Let me remind you one more time: these clothes are organic cotton. They are uber (that’s right, I have just said uber) soft and the only way it could possibly irritate a baby is if you wrapped it round your finger and started poking. Even the seams are smooth and well finished. 

The quality of the clothing is top notch with excellent trims, finishing touches and detail. They are machine washable at 40 degrees and wash and dry with like colours. It’s not as if you need to separate them into a ‘special’ wash like I have to do with my Allsaints clothing! Having said that, they do deserve their own wash! In fact, they deserve a loving trip to the dry cleaners to have the works! 

The baby grows start at around £16 and other items are more or less, depending on what they are. This is more expensive that a pack of 3 baby grows from Mothercare, but you get what you pay for. I’ve said it before and I stand by it… Buy within your limits but quality comes before quantity with me. I’d rather have a few of these and wash them more, than have thousands of cheap items of clothing. And saying all of this, I don’t think £16 is unreasonable at all. (Some can be double!) 

The clothes are made in Portugal by a traditional and experienced manufacturer using locally sourced materials. 

Organic cotton, high quality and original designs. Piupia gets an official Dad Network start rating of 5 / 5 stars. 

We highly recommend this company – go take a look for yourself if you don’t believe!

    Nice. I was the same when our daughter was a baby. I couldn’t help myself. I had buy grows and bibs and socks and booties etc. I was worse than her mother. Even when she was toddling, I was coming home with lovely dresses I had bought.
    16 pounds to me is a bit pricey for something they will grow out of quickly. Not too bad if you intend using them for a second child. So double the usage.
    Great review though. Big thumbs up.
