COMPANY INFO

CastleWare Baby

After working in the clothing manufacturing industry for many years, Maureen Smithey dreamt of creating garments that would reflect her values of respect for people and our environment. A line of unique, ethically made organic pajamas and clothing for babies, toddlers and children that are designed with comfort and movement in mind. A line that is well made and uses only the highest quality, made in the USA organic cotton knit fabrics. Since 2008, we at Castleware Baby have stayed true to that vision by manufacturing a complete line of organic cotton sleepers, sleeping bags and pajamas for babies and children to size 8. We remain committed to using the finest fabrics, manufacturing from start to finish in the USA and designing for real families, well built pajamas and sleepers that hold up to the test of time. We focus on classic designs in high-quality fabrics that feel good next to the skin. We combine functionality with comfort. We believe that pajamas should last long enough to be passed down to a little brother or sister. Our customers agree! At Castleware Baby, we are dedicated to keeping children safe, warm and comfortable at night so that the entire family sleeps better.
