Purebaby Purebaby stocks entirely organic clothing for babies and children at two boutiques in the city, as well as online. Organic tends to mean expensive, but while the silk jumpers will set you back 700kr, the company offers regular sales online and in store. A sweet grey one-piece made of organic cotton with a star print and purple trim is currently on sale for 139.50kr. The tiny red rubber boots for 299kr are adorable and pretty hard to pass up.
