Infant & Child Products

When it comes to infants and children, there isn’t any room to compromise. On materials, on safety, on anything. 

We can bring you technologies that will stand up to teething and germs. If you need colors and surfaces that will appeal to picky toddlers, or sustainable products that will please even the most environmentally conscious of parents, you can count on us too. We can also help accelerate the design process, making sure the materials you select work to the best of their ability. Because the smallest consumers deserve the very best.
