Hello and thank you for visiting our shop.
The Little Art Collection is an online baby boutique designing and making Luxury bamboo baby essentials for you and yours.
Here is our collection of Muslin Swaddle Blankets, and this is what makes them special:
We are proud Make It British Members and make all of our Muslin Baby Blankets right here in Britain – check the label on your other muslins and you’ll see that this is very unusual. Designing and making our Muslin Blankets here helps us to reduce our carbon footprint and also supports our economy.
Our Luxury Swaddle Blankets are made from 100% bamboo muslin, not cotton or cotton/bamboo. Often referred to as the ‘cashmere of cotton’, 100% bamboo muslin is extremely Soft and kinder on delicate, sensitive skin. This is due to the naturally round and smooth fibres of the bamboo plant - the smooth fibres lie flat against the skin which prevents irritation. It is partly for this reason that bamboo is also considered naturally hypoallergenic.
Bamboo Baby Blankets will get softer with every wash. This is because washing causes the smooth bamboo fibres to line up in a more orderly fashion and as they become rearranged the texture of the weave becomes softer and smoother.
Our Natural Baby Blankets can help to manage baby’s body temperature. Bamboo muslin is naturally breathable creating tiny ‘micro gaps’ within its weave which allows air to flow freely. These tiny air pockets allow for the temperature on one side of the blanket to regulate against the temperature on the other side of the blanket. In other words, it traps cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter and provides up to 3 degrees of variance. This level of breathability and thermoregulation is not possible with traditional cotton Muslin Baby Blankets.
Our Muslin Swaddle Blankets are 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton Baby Blankets. This is because bamboo wicks moisture away from the skin faster, keeping your little one dry and comfortable whether asleep or awake.
Our Bamboo Baby Blankets are ideal for Swaddling but can also be used for so much more. At 120cm x 120cm they are large enough to use as a flat cot sheet – either over the mattress or tucked in around baby. They make great nursing covers, Large Muslins for feeding, mats for changing, tummy time, makeshift dribble bibs and more.
Each of our Patterned Bamboo Baby Blankets has been designed in collaboration with an aspiring British artist. The details about each artist are enclosed alongside your order. We aim to make only Unisex print patterns but this of course is subjective! Since lots of our customers choose to buy our designs as collectible gifts we offer a gift box option with everything we make, we can also gift wrap your orders and send them out direct.
We hope you are pleased with your Baby Blanket, but if for any reason you aren’t you can exchange or return your order for free (UK only). Our returns information can be found on the back of your receipt / gift receipt.
It is our ethos to design using only the very best natural fabrics we can find. Our bamboo yarn comes from a GOTS certified bamboo farm in India, this means they are formally regulated in their use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemicals. The bamboo yarn is woven into muslin in Europe and then printed using an OEKOTEX standard class 1 printing house. This means that the printing process is regularly tested for harmful substances to ensure it is safe for babies. We also regularly spot test our fabrics here in the UK including additional tests against the EU toy safety directive EN71 (because if your little ones are anything like ours they’ll suck their muslins too!).
