Encompass® Reusable Apparel has partnered with Starlight Children’s Foundation™ to create Starlight Pediatric Patient Apparel, Bedding and Patient Care Items.
The Starlight pediatric apparel line features unique, vibrant prints designed by children and teens who have been patients and beneficiaries of Starlight’s programs. The designs are intended to help comfort, inspire and cheer other children and teens fighting serious medical conditions.
In a contest held last year, 325 designs were submitted from across the US and Canada. The designs of four young people who have fought their own battles with illness were chosen: “Melody of the Sky” by Myron Laban, 16, of Des Plaines, IL; “You Are Not Alone” by Anna Kristina Alfaro, 11, of San Antonio, TX; “One Small Star” by Noah Yosif, 15, of Chicago, IL; and “Touch of Neon” by Rebecca Gordon, 14, of Manhattan, IL.

The heavyweight knit fabric used in Starlight Reusable Pediatric Patient Apparel provides the soft feel of cotton, with the durability and colorfastness of 100% polyester knit, and meets CFR 1615 and 1616 flammability requirements for children’s sleepwear.
Each distinct design supports simplified sorting and size identification of gowns and tops, which coordinate to a solid color pajama pant.
The Starlight Nonwoven Pediatric Patient Apparel line features a playful purple and green version of Anna Kristina’s “You Are Not Alone” design. The line includes infant shirts, pediatric gowns, pajama pants, and bedding made of high quality materials designed to be soft enough for your most precious patients. The Starlight Patient Cleaners carry the same design on their handy dispenser box.
