1Mby1M Incubation Radar 2010: Sock Monkeys Clothing

Posted on Monday, Jul 12th 2010

By guest author Praveen Kumar

Sock Monkeys Clothing is a clothing line designed for children suffering from skin conditions such as eczema, epidermolysis bullosa, chicken pox, and other sensitive skin issues. The primary benefit is the scratch protection offered by the permanent “hand socks” that make up a part of each garment’s sleeves and cover fingernails while allowing children to still use their hands to pick things up. The clothing is made from extremely soft organic cotton to provide maximum comfort. Additionally, all stitching is on the outside of the garments to prevent chafing, the snaps are nickel-free to prevent allergic reactions, and the tags tear away easily to avoid irritation. All products are hand-made in the United States. >>>
