Hanna Andersson was founded in 1983 in Portland, Oregon by Gun Denhart, a woman from Sweden who created an original line of children's clothing based on Scandinavian principles of happiness and design. It's about celebrating life's simple moments of joy, letting kids be kids, and nurturing their independence and growth.
Over three decades later, Hanna is part of the family, creating a legacy of the softest, most durably crafted clothes and accessories—made to wear and wash over and over and then hand down, making Hanna the original sustainable kids' clothing brand.
They’ve always believed children’s clothes should be made from the best materials and be free of harmful chemicals. That’s why they started using organic cotton and following health and safety benchmarks well before most U.S. companies ever considered such things. Their commitment has only strengthened over time and they’re continually raising the bar on themselves.
Gun Denhart committed to organic cotton right from the start, saying, “We have to go organic. It’s a human rights issue.” That pact to keep farmers and their families around the world safe will always be a priority for Hanna Anderson. Their expanded commitment to Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) helps ensure their partners adhere to social and environmental best practices.
