The Giving Cradle supports local economies of bamboo farmers and expert artisans

We work with bamboo manufacturers in India who are experts in growing and harvesting bamboo in an environmentally sustainable way and in designing bamboo products that build on the strength and flexibility of the plant itself. The fabric components of the Giving Cradle are manufactured by our fair trade partners in India who train and upskill workers to ensure high quality products while providing economic opportunity and artisan skill development.

We have chosen our partners carefully based on their experience in manufacturing high quality goods and their commitment to providing economic empowerment to those in need. Working with these organization ensures that at every step of the Giving Cradle supply chain, we are giving back to the environments and economies that support our work.

  • By making sustainable economic and environmental choices, we help create a healthier and more productive future for all.

Why bamboo?

Bamboo is the safer, stronger, and more sustainable option for your newborn’s cradle.

Safer with Bamboo: Bamboo can grow without fertilizers or pesticides, is resistant to moisture, and it has naturally antimicrobial properties. This means an organic cradle for your newborn.

Stronger with Bamboo: Did you know that bamboo has a tensile strength of 28,000 per square inch compared to 23,000 for steel? Bamboo furniture is stronger and more durable than traditional materials but it is also lighter. This means a sturdy yet portable cradle for your newborn.

Sustainable with Bamboo: Bamboo is a fast growing renewable material that doesn’t require pesticides or chemicals, prevents erosion, requires little irrigation, and produces 35% more oxygen than equivalent trees. This means an environmentally friendly cradle for your newborn and the world they grow up in.

  • Bamboo is one of the most durable, sustainable, renewable resources on the planet.
    We are proud to feature bamboo in the Giving Cradle.
