Ojala Threads' Buyiri Bodysuit is inspired by the Taino symbol for bats. This is the perfect item to let our descendants know that we are the original batman!
You see our creation story tells us that there are three sacred caves in the Dominican Republic. The sun and moon rule the one in the east. The moon allowed bats to forage during the night, but if any were caught by the sun they were transformed to stone. Eventually the sun realized the creatures needed sun. So any bats that were late were transformed into everything we see today, including humans.
Our Bodysuits are made from a custom fabric that supports baby's movements with built in stretch. We hand-print them using water based non toxic inks that wash beautifully. Generously sized our pieces are cut larger than standard baby onesies taking the guessing work out of shopping for little ones. Shoulder flaps make undressing easier, even in the messiest situation.

I love having clothing I can trust put on my son. I also love connecting to my cultural roots through the clothing so I can bring my son up within this knowledge.
