Because we trust in nature!

Fortunately, children still have a special relationship with nature, plants and animals. It's this genuine feeling of one's roots and connectivity that makes us long for original purity time and again. For no matter how far industrialization has brought us, we always remain children of nature.

We are convinced that natural materials and all sustainably produced, ecological materials are simply best for us. This is why we only allow these matierals to become part of our Naturkind stroller. Naturally, the confirmation of our ecological work by eco-friendly certificates is very important to us. Our IVN membership, the GOTS certification of our cover fabrics and textile accessories, several tests and the Öko-Test certificates (see below).

Based on this nature-oriented philosophy, we send all our Naturkind strollers out on a special adventure with a clear conscience, aiming to make everyday family life and your baby's life more comfortable and convenient.

IVN certification

Protecting our environment – humans, animals and plants – is not just a fashionable subject. Sustainability, respect & responsibility for our environment is a life philosophy of IVN members. We aim to implement this on all levels of production & sales and to introduce it to as many people as possible.

 

GOTS certification

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognized as the world's leading standard for the processing of textiles made of organically produced natural fibres. It defines environmental requirements along the entire textile production chain at a high level, in addition to demanding the adherence to social criteria.

 

Product from Austria

As a nature-loving and economically powerful country, Austria is home to various organic products and continues to be characterized by high-quality regional handicraft. In our opinion, Austria is the perfect place to bring ecological strollers like our Naturkind strollers to life!

Testing & Certificates

It is especially important to us that all the materials we use are regularly tested for possible harmful substances by independent inspection institutes! The tests are performed under the guidelines of the International Assosication of Natural Textile Industry (IVN) and the guidelines of the Austrian eco-label.
