Speaking about the brand, founder Alia Bhatt said,
“This is a time of great uncertainty for the whole world. The universe is sending us a message. That if we mess with nature, there is a price we all have to pay. I’ve tried doing this with a universe of products for children. Every detail does its bit for mother nature. Be it non-synthetic garments, buttons that don’t use plastic, seed bombs that help you grow a garden. Why children’s products? To catch them young and create a love for nature at an early age.”
