Since 1998, Under the Nile has been a leader in the organic industry, producing the softest and most durable cotton toys for infants and children.  The brand was set up by Janice Masoud who went to Egypt with her husband to visit his family and fell in love with the country.

Under the Nile products are produced solely with materials sourced from SEKEM, a company which was set up to produce healthy and organic crops including cotton. SEKEM have their own Development Foundation which runs a school, a medical centre, a vocational training centre, various programs for socially disadvantaged children and several research and training programs.

Under the Nile supply villagers with daily fair trade work and enables teaching and education through their 13 Villages Project.  This project is responsible for providing health care and guidance for maintaining overall health.  Under the Nile is empowering these communities to lead happier, healthier lives.

Under the Nile's soft toys are made and stuffed with 100% of the purest and softest organic Egyptian cotton which is organically cultivated and grown, and is certified to the National Organic Program Standards (COAE) and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

GOTS is recognised as the leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres worldwide. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire supply chain of organic textiles and requires compliance with social criteria as well.

Under the Nile has two certifications: one for their manufacturing process, and one for their distribution.  All Under the Nile hangtags feature the GOTS logo.
