At Bobo Choses, they love creating fun clothes in comfortable shapes for kids to play with; writing crazy children's books, that give meaning to their collections and designing beautiful objects that lift our feet off the ground.
Bobo Choses love working in an old toy factory two blocks away from the Mediterranean Sea; learning from local manufacturers’ know-how and turning ten years old in 2018.
Bobo Choses love being kids stuck inside adults; acting seriously funny and caring for the world and everything that is part of it

Fibres for life, fibres for fun!
Bobo Choses like to replace conventional materials with more sustainable ones that have a lower impact on both nature and human health. They use GOTS-certified organic cotton as the main fibre in our collections. Increasingly, they are incorporating more sustainable fibres such as linen, cupro, recycled polyester and LENZING™ Lyocell.
• 63% of the cotton used in our AW20 kid collection is GOTS certified organic cotton.
• 72% of the cotton used in our AW20 baby collection is GOTS certified organic cotton.
Our garments are made locally. 91% of our AW20 collection was produced between Spain and Portugal, of which 70% was produced no more than 12 miles away from our headquarters. We love to support our local manufacturers and to learn from their know-how.
All of our suppliers need to comply with our Code of Conduct which helps us share our mutual responsibility for fair labour and a safe working environment. We visit our suppliers regularly in order to assure that they are meeting Bobo Choses ethical standards. The production and finishing factories we work with are OEKO-TEX certified, so we have a clear and transparent view of our entire textile supply chain.
• 76% of AW20 production was made in Spain
• 15% of AW20 production was made in Portugal
• All of our suppliers need to comply with our Code of Conduct
Corporate Social Responsibility
On the corporate social responsibility (CSR) side, we usually collaborate with The Red Cross and several other social organizations to help families and children in need. We like to get involved with summer camps, foundations, and other social projects along the way.
Our garments are analyzed by one of Europe’s leading research centres called AITEX. This is to certify they are healthy garments! All of our products are free of nickel and chromium.
Our outerwear use BIONIC FINISH ECO water-repellent treatment. It is free from dangerous chemicals such as fluorocarbons, formaldehyde and paraffin.
• AITEX certifies our production.
• We are chromium and nickel-free.
• Our water-repellent treatment is free of fluorocarbons, formaldehyde and paraffin.
Re-use, re-cycle, re-duce
Working with organisations such as MADE-BY and ANTHESIS helps us with action plans to address carbon, water and waste reduction. In five years we have managed to reduce our carbon footprint by 7.4% and our water consumption by 30%.
We make an accurate forecast when we buy fabrics to avoid overstock and all the scraps generated at the production stage are donated to a local foundation called CEO El Maresme for recycling and re-use. At the moment, we are working on a dedicated project to expand the lifecycle of our overstock materials with the Waste Agency of Catalonia and Hallotex-The Loop. We hope to share more information in the near future.
• We’ve reduced our water consumption by 30%.
• We’ve reduced our carbon footprint by 7.4%.
• All the scraps are donated for re-use.
Our shipping bags are environmentally friendly because they are made of resistant kraft paper that is 100% recyclable and biodegradable, and have the international Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
A double closing system makes your returns much responsible and easy and their smaller size compared to other traditional packaging options helps reduce their environmental footprint: less transport volume, fewer costs, less fuel consumption, no seal, or fillings. No waste!
Plus, it’s a great blank canvas to let kids’ creativity fly!
