Every brand has a story, and ours comes from the heart.
A few years ago, our family was caught in a distressing situation: our 20-month old daughter was diagnosed with Atopic Dermatitis, or eczema. It’s a common form of eczema, but starting at childhood, it’s also severe and long-lasting.
The diagnosis was just the dawn of our journey. We learned to identify the triggers to her breakouts, which medications and treatments worked best, and what to avoid. In our constant search for the most natural approach to alleviate the flare-ups, we found a tremendously helpful solution: Pima cotton.
There is a downside, however. Pima fabric and clothes are expensive, and children’s options are few. Seeing our daughter’s transformation inspired us to take action, and we realized we had an opportunity to bring this level of relief to many families who struggle with this condition. This was the inception of SUMYCOTTON, a community outreach effort of our company, SUMYMCA.
SUMYCOTTON designs, manufactures and distributes a line of children’s t-shirts, PJs and blankets made of 100% Peruvian Pima cotton, to fulfill a dire market need for comfortable clothes suitable for children afflicted with eczema. The line, available soon through our website, www.sumycotton.com, features Bella and Sebastian, a brother-and-sister team that parades colorfully across our garments, appealing to children and parents alike. Comfortable and affordable, our garments will ship initially from the U.S. and Canada.
