Okaïdi, the brand for children from 0 to 14 years old, belonging to the IdKids group, focuses on the social commitment of the little ones. Specifically, the OBAÏBI collection, which dresses children from birth to 3 years, offers 100% of the organic cotton birth basketlike bodysuits, t-shirts and pajamas, are distinguished by their label EKO.
One of the main objectives of the brand is to design garments with the less polluting alternatives possible, like the organic cotton, recycled cotton or recycled polyester. In 2022, 52.5% of the Okaïdi brand products were made with one of these materials. In addition, 100% of the padding in the coats is made from recycled polyester and 80% of the Okaïdi T-shirts have at least 30% recycled cotton.
Despite repeated crises and the inflationary context, Okaïdi pursues its first EKO commitment to generalize the use of recycled materials in all its collections and in ever greater proportions. In addition, they are in the process of developing more responsible finishing techniques that consume less energy.
“At Okaïdi we have always wanted to dress children thinking about tomorrow. At a time when the transformation of the textile industry has become urgent, at the brand we redouble our efforts to create more sustainable products and promote sensible fashion with future generations in mind.”, reveals Sergi Brunet, General Director of Okaïdi by IdKids for Spain and Portugal.
