ManyMonths ECO Hempies Bubble Shorts
Main material: 55% hemp, 45% organic cotton (light summer jersey)
The waist and leg openings are elastic and adjustable. Use these first as cute roomy shorts on top of nappies. When your child grows, loosen the elastic at the waist and remove the elastics at the leg openings to create ordinary shorts with straight leg openings.
The Bubble Shorts are made of our new very soft and airy, light hemp/organic cotton jersey, perfect for hot weather. Suitable also as sleep shorts, get several pairs. Prewashed twice - ready for immediate use and almost no shrinkage. Somewhat uneven, natural fiber surface, four different colours. Completely biodegradable fabric.

ManyMonths ECO Hempies
In addition to ManyMonths Natural Woollies we offer ECO Hempies clothing that has similar growing-with-your-children features as the Woollies.
Benefits of Hemp Clothing
We combine hemp with organic cotton in all our ManyMonths ECO Hempies (55% hemp/organic cotton 45%). The woven items are lightweight linen fabric and the knitted items are light or medium weight jerseys.
Our hemp blend fabrics are pre-washed twice to avoid shrinkage and make the clothing ready to wear straight out of the package.
Like wool, hemp can absorb quite a lot of humidity (up to 20% of its own weight) and keep feeling dry to the touch. Our ManyMonths ECO Hempies are highly breathable and feel cool in the summer heat.
Hemp itself is UV-resistant and has antimicrobial properties — clothing made of it also carries these properties. This means that hemp fabric naturally holds out against microbes and can repress the growth of bacteria. Your clothing stays fresh longer and you can opt to wash them less often than other clothing, which is better for the environment as it saves both water and energy. Hemp clothing doesn't mind washing though — actually, your pieces become even softer with every wash!
Combat Global Warming and have a Clean Water Future
Hemp is one of the oldest crops known to man. Hemp fabric was made and used already 10 000 years ago. Hemp detoxifies the soil, prevents ground erosion, and absorbs carbon dioxide from the air. It requires no pesticides and much less water than other crops, and so saves lakes, streams, and rivers from pollution. Hemp doesn't need fertilizers either, because the shedding of leaves provides the soil with natural nutrition.
By choosing hemp (and organic cotton) YOU are part of the natural movement to make things right in the world.
Why choose ManyMonths?
”I want natural and sustainable materials for my children, to shop less, and have more time and resources to spend together with my loved ones doing what we like.”
Does this sound like you? Then a capsule wardrobe is the way to go.
All ManyMonths clothing *grow* with our children, having clever solutions to extend the time of use much further than conventional clothing. As children grow very fast their clothing gets small quickly, and they go through a whopping seven regular sizes in rapid succession just during their first two years.
Choosing clothing that fits longer is a very important step for a sustainable wardrobe. This has been overlooked for a long time. More and more clothing is produced each year and according to one study, a piece of (fast fashion) clothing is made to be used only 10 times. This is shocking, right?! Clothing that grows with our children saves us time and money, and helps to reduce our carbon footprint substantially.
ManyMonths clothing is designed to be a perfect base for a sustainable capsule wardrobe: solid colours, versatile items, pieces, and colours that match each other and go with previous and other ManyMonths collections.
