Smart Art for Growing Minds

Who They Are

Babies go through immense development within their first five years - so much, in fact, that learning during those first years far exceeds what comes later in life! This fact spurred new parents, Surya and Dave, to do a deep dive into what babies need most during this period. They learned that for the first few months of their lives, little ones are only able to see as far as 12-15 inches in front of them, are most fascinated with their parents' faces, and are taken with black and white images and geometric shapes. With this knowledge in hand and through experience with their own kiddos, Surya and Dave launched Wee Gallery - a company dedicated to ethically and sustainably sourced products that support both cognitive development and fine motor skills. The pair came equipped with backgrounds in teaching, graphic design, botany, zoology, and chemistry - all of which are apparent in their delightful nature-inspired, educational products!

The Global Organic Textile Standard is an international processing standard for organic fibers that covers everything from processing, packaging, and distributing organic fibers. GOTS certified products are labeled organic if they contain 95% or more certified organic fibers, and are labeled as “made with organic” if they contain at least 70% organic fibers. GOTS assures that textiles are produced with socially responsible labor and environmentally conscious manufacturing. Certified textiles must follow guidelines on chemical use, energy and water consumption, safety and living standards for employees, waste produced throughout the manufacture process, and more.

Companies can adopt multiple practices to print clothing, books, and catalogs in a more environmentally safe way. Low impact inks can include vegetable, soy, or water based alternatives, and generally do not contain harmful toxins like heavy metals or phthalates.

Recycled paper can contain both pre- and post-consumer recycled content. Once paper is sent to a recycling facility, it’s washed to remove any inks and converted to a watery slush called “slurry.” This slurry is spread and rolled to create different types of paper. This process keeps paper out of the landfill, prevents trees from being cut down, and saves the energy and resources needed to create virgin paper products.

As a member of the grass family, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. It requires no irrigation, pesticides or fertilizers to grow, and can be harvested within 3-5 years, as compared to approximately 30+ years for traditional hardwoods. Bamboo is extremely adaptable and produces more oxygen per acre than large tree species, while using a fraction of the water to grow. Its durable and lightweight qualities make bamboo a great alternative for hard wood products!

Organic cotton production uses zero chemical pesticides and fertilizers, promoting a healthier use of land and decreasing harmful agricultural runoff. By steering clear of toxic chemicals, workers experience less exposure to hazardous conditions, promoting social responsibility as well as environmental stewardship. Plus, farming methods for organic cotton have been shown to use up to 20% less water than nonorganic production methods. Choosing organic cotton eliminates the use of insecticides and other harmful chemicals, promotes efficient resource use, and results in a safer products and a cleaner planet!
