Green Cotton Velvet Jacket Review & Giveaway from Vyssan Lull {CLOSED}


I have had my eye on the incredibly stylish baby clothing line - Green Cotton. Funny how when you have babies you stop noticing the cute clothes for yourself and instead ogle the adorable baby clothes (me at least!). I am really thankful to the Vyssan Lull boutique for providing a Green Cotton Velvet Hooded Jacket for this review.

Just a word about Vyssan Lull first, their selection of the best non-toxic baby clothing is incredible. As you may know, the Europeans are way ahead of us when it comes to sustainable fabrics without pesticides, hence you will see a lot of European and primarily Scandinavian brands on the site. The likes of Roda Hund, Sture & Lisa, Maxomorra, Duns, and Gegamoja are there. They have a well stocked sale section to make organic more affordable.

Read to the end to enter to win your choice of item from the sale section!


Fit & Design: This jacket is just splendid, made exactly right for little girls. My favorite thing is that it is cut in such a way that it looks great even if it is a little big, which for frugal moi means baby E can wear it for several seasons! I wasn't sure of the Iron color, on the website I thought it was black. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the dark plum/gray color. It isn't bright, so it matches nearly everything. The photo on the left above most closely shows the actual color.

Quality & Value: This jacket is something that you would find at an upscale baby boutique. It is very high quality and I can't even think of a well known brand that I can compare it to. The organic cotton is soooo soft. The Velvet Hooded Jacket retail price is $62, but it is on sale at Vyssan Lull right now for $44. It also comes in pink!


How is this green: Organic cotton is grown without pesticides.

Who would you recommend this to? For a sweet little girl who needs a versatile jacket to wear year round. A timeless piece that grows with the baby and matches any wardrobe.

One Eco-Babyz reader will be blessed with an item of your choice from the Vyssan Lull sale section!
