Great Product But Damaged By Packaging
on October 12, 2010
These are affordable and soft organic cotton sets that I would have given 5 stars to had Hudson Baby not placed the the plastic that pierces the fabric to affix the products to the hangers in locations that damaged the fabric, leaving holes that will have to be mended. Unfortunately, you won't necessarily notice this issue until you have cut the plastic to free the items from each other and the hangers, which means you won't be able to return the product. Other companies use the same plastic but are intelligent as to where the plastic pierces the fabric (they pierce the inside seam where no damage that will cause a problem will be done). Unfortunately, Hudson Baby's placement of this plastic has left noticeable holes on the back (by the neck) of the body suit. Many of the holes are large enough that in order to avoid a run or larger hole, I will have to mend or use some sort of iron-on tape on the inside of the items.
I will keep this set and the other sets I purchased with eyes wide open. Hopefully, some of the smaller holes will disappear with washing and drying, but some have truly damaged the fabric. As I am sure is true of all of us, I don't want to mend a new product, but the reality is that the cotton is soft, the set is cute, and the price is right, especially for an organic product. Hopefully, Hudson Baby will hear from enough of us and adjust their method and location of affixing the set to the hangers.
