Organic, functional materials boost baby bibs' value


The latest releases benefit babies’ skin and help reduce mess during feeding.




  • Green fabrics: Organic cotton, soybean and milk protein fiber, and bamboo rayon and charcoal are the popular options. The last is preferred for its odor resistance and comfort, while makers adopt bamboo rayon because of the input’s anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic properties. Companies employ milk protein fiber as it retains heat well and resists pilling. Soybean protein variants are said to contain 16 amino acids that benefit the skin.
  • Plastic models gain ground: Manufacturers are launching pieces with PP, PVC or EVA fronts to facilitate cleaning. Versions that are made entirely of plastic available as well. Some upscale baby bibs also adopt 100% food-grade silicone.
  • Pelican-style releases: Several silicone designs come with built-in crumb catchers. A number of EVA pieces have bottoms that can be folded into a pocket for collecting spills during feeding.
  • Price projection: Rising material and labor spending are expected to raise quotes in the next six months. Makers, however, will limit increases to 5 percent to remain competitive.
