Where do Simply Fido colors come from?
The Pure Water Wash process is the secret to creating such charming colors. Untreated cotton thread is woven into gently flowing fabric and then brightened with nature's own plants and minerals. The fabric is then triple-washed in pure water to set the color. As a result, each toy has its own unique appearance and color variance.
Colors from Mother Nature:
- Beige is from a Chestnut Bur
- Yellow is from a Gardenia Seed
- Red is from the Madder Root
- Gray is from the Mineral Charcoal
Being a consumer of organic goods means not only keeping chemicals out of the air, water and soil, but most importantly, our bodies.
One third of all the world's pesticides are used on cotton crops alone. This is not just bad for the planet as the pesticide toxins affect all levels of the food chain, but according to the World Health Organization (WHO), some 20,000 deaths occur each year from pesticide poisoning in developing countries, many being from cotton farming.
Thanks to the pioneering efforts of organic farmers, biologically based methods of growing cotton are emerging. Working with nature rather than against nature, organically grown cotton becomes sustainable.

The CE Mark is not a quality mark, but rather a symbol that indicates conformity to the legal requirements of the European Union (EU) Directive. Every manufacturer or first supplier in the Community must place a CE mark on his toy to indicate that it has been made in conformity with the essential safety requirements of the directive.
