Company Profile

Satsuma Designs: Co-founded by Fashion Group of Seattle Board Member Jennifer Porter

 

Satsuma Designs – Good for your baby, Good for mother earth™.

 

This summer marked the launch of Satsuma Designs (http://www.satsumadesigns.com/) a company dedicated to providing shoppers with elegant and earth-friendly gifts for baby and home. Satsuma’s first product, a 100% bamboo baby swaddling blanket is both naturally antibacterial and made from sustainable resources. Production is under way in time for holiday release of the bamboo velour collection featuring plush blankets in sizes for the entire family. 

 

Founded to address the growing consumer demand for products that are safe for children and the environment, Satsuma took special measures to source materials and manufacturing practices that served its dual mission – to make socially responsible business decisions while creating quality products. The company’s first product meets these criteria. The creamy colored blanket is soft to the touch and fights bacteria and odors commonly found in the home, nurseries, and in public spaces.

“My partner, Shannon and I recognized that as parents and consumers we were responding to the increase in environmental awareness in lots of different products. We were both making purchasing decisions about how healthy, green and good for the environment different items were - from cleaning products, to a new mattress, to researching a hybrid for the next family car. We saw an opportunity to connect our evolving philosophies with products that are good for our own kids and every kid,” shares Porter.

Satsuma Designs promises a growing collection of earth-friendly and elegant products for children and adults. The collection can be found locally at Village Maternity, Birth & Beyond and Fresh as well as online at www.satsumadesigns.com.
