What makes them different?
Making sustainable fashion accessible is at the very core of what Milki Train does. Milkitrain creates organic nursing tops that are just as pretty as they are practical. Alongside the fact that their designs are crafted from pure, GOTS & Oeko-Tex certified cotton, we also love the smart slits that make breastfeeding so so much easier.
