Eco-luxury Infant Clothes Competition: Featuring Zia and Tia

Zia & Tia Pure Luxury Organics offers collections for babies and toddlers. The passionate design team directed by owner Julie Jonas is loyal to everything sustainable in Montreal.

These hand-knit items are made from the finest 100% certified organic Merino wool, spun entirely from unbleached, 3 ply or 8 ply un-dyed Merino fleece. No harsh chemicals are used in dying processes and garments are BIO-GRO certified.

Pictured example is a long-sleeved organic frill dress, also available with short sleeves. Note the moss stitch bodice with a frill trim around the collar, hem and sleeves. This soft adorable dress is a must-have for all little girls to wear alone, over pants, or with a shirt underneath.

Great color choices for all Merino wool knit items are cottontail (cream), cocoa, peach blossom, vintage rose, sky (blue), pale celadon green, or mellow (light yellow) ‒ five are colored from plant and tree extracts. Cottontail and cocoa are spun entirely from unbleached, un-dyed organic Merino fleece. The cocoa is from brown sheep. Certified organic baby alpaca yarn garments are a nice almond color. All are hand washable.

In summary, Julie and her company design luxury, practicality and beauty with handmade and vintage-inspired organic designs. Check out the site to see a sale going on now.

Written by Delia Montgomery

I am Delia, d/b/a Chic Eco on, and established myself as an eco fashion guru by learning "who makes what in the world of environmental fashion and design."

Enjoy reading some of my freelance writing about environmental design, fashion and art -- from both consumer and supplier perspectives. You may notice I focus most on individual eco designers, movers and shakers.

From sustainable fashion apparel to paint and flooring, discoveries are a rush. I get my kicks this way. I also offer sales representation of earth-friendly designed products for wholesale buyers. Retailers may take advantage of my services with factory-direct pricing. Spend less time sourcing and prevent green-washed purchases!

My other forte is connecting suppliers with business-to-business tools. Aspects of my business vary with consulting services while I'm proud to be the aide that embraces unique and innovative gigs.

I'm originally a Kentucky Blue Grass gal who relocated to Maui early 2006 and the tropical Puna District of Big Island, Hawaii late 2007. Walk the talk is my motto here.

Early 2009 I constructed a yurt home office in a semi-urban setting on a tiny lot. My water comes from the sky, contained in a catchment that's not likely to dry in this rain forest. The electric is designed for solar conversion. I grow about 30% of my food organically, compost, and recycle to the hilt. Permaculture with a full eco system is my gardening style.

In fact, gardening is my ultimate joy. I seek gigs like design, weeding and planting between other jobs. My love is Hawai'i which has more climate zones than any state. There are frequent earthquakes here, typically under a 3.0 magnitude, and I happen to dig the vibrations. It's a wonderful simple life in paradise. As I grow older and wiser, I become more and more grateful.
