KIDS DESIGN - aden + anais

I came across these lovely contemporary baby products by Aden + Anais when I saw that they were being used to swaddle Stenton David Jones - David Bowie's grandson. A little bit of research later and I was able to enjoy all their other fab designs on muslin baby blankets, swaddles, bibs, onesies etc. Luckily for a Bowie baby prints include lightning bolts and black stars, as well as new arrivals featuring lots of metallics. Aden + Anais was founded in New York by Australian Raegan Moya-Jones, who could not find the traditional muslin blankets in the USA when her daughter Anais was born. So in 2006 she brought out her first swaddle muslin - which can be used for all manner of baby purposes from stroller covers to burp cloths. I really liked the patterns Aden + Anais have put together, which also includes a collaboration with stylish kids label Zutano. You can see everything in their ranges here at the main website or head to their UK online store.
