Tell us about Golden Curly Tail;
Golden Curly Tail (GCT) is a new online webstore that specializes in eco-friendly baby and toddler wear. The mission of GCT is to make small changes each day to cherish and preserve our environment. We believe that even taking baby steps, we can make a big difference when we make conscious decisions and take conscious actions to take care of mother earth's natural resources.
Any significance behind the name and designs?
Golden Curly Tail (GCT) was inspired by the birth of my daughter, who was born during the Year of the Golden Pig in 2007. Some say, children born during the Year of the Golden Pig bring many blessings, and also 2007 was a rare year that happens once every 60 years. There was a baby boom all over Asia and also in the U.S. that year, as many Golden Piglets were born.
After my daughter was born, I realized she had eczema, and had skin that was very sensitive to many fabrics. After many sleepless nights of seeing her scratching and suffering, I went online and researched all I could do to help relieve her suffering, from fabrics, to lotions to toys, etc. After learning about the many benefits of bamboo, I fell in love with the bamboo fabric. Its so soft and is also hypoallergenic.
Currently, GCT has 3 designs. The GCT Logo, the "Golden Piglet" and the "Yoga Piglet".
The GCT Logo is an icon represents a new generation of Change Makers.
The "Golden Piglet" is a cool and playful character, and loves to be the center of attention.
The Yoga Piglet is calm and present in its natural yogi state. He also brings wisdom and inspiration to the next generation.
How Long has Golden Curly Tail been in business?
Golden Curly Tail officially launched in December 2009.
Your products are made with Bamboo - Could you explain the benefits etc?
Yes, our products are made of 70% bamboo and 30% Organic Cotton. Bamboo fabric is organic, natural and comfortable. It is also amazingly soft, highly absorbent, naturally anti-bacterial, biodegradable and dries faster than cotton. I couldn't believe how good bamboo fabric felt after I bought a bamboo towel for my daughter. Bamboo fabric is perfect for skin that is very sensitive skin to chemicals, dyes, etc.
What types of products do you offer?
We currently offer onesies and toddler tees and have three designs: The GCT Logo, the Golden Piglet and the Yoga Piglet. The onesie sizes include 6-12 months, 12-18 months and 18-24 months. The toddler tee sizes include 2T and 3T.
