Because we trust in nature!
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.
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!

Natural wood is used to stiffen the back and seat part.
Organic Cotton Fabrics
Naturkind uses high ecological quality cotton fabrics – from the raw material to the finished processed cover of the stroller. This is ensured by our GOTS certification.
Organic Virgin Sheep's Wool
is used as a temperature regulating lining of the stroller cover fabrics. We also offer our fleece in pure organic cotton, as a vegan Option.
This mattress is a must for soft spines and sensitive baby bones. The coconut mattress is a fixed component of every Naturkind stroller.
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.
