Ellie Fun Day
These blankets are exquisite.
And so is the mission behind them.
I met the people behind Ellie Fun Day at a trade show last year. I knew of their line, but it was my first time to really chat with them about their mission. These are not your average swaddles.
Ellie Fun Day designs organic baby blankets and accessories that empower marginalized women in India with a fair-wage and dignified employment. Each blanket and accessory has an element that is hand-embroidered onto super soft organic cotton. Their Goddess swaddle doubles as a scarf and nursing cover, perfect for both mama & baby. Yes, these blankets are hand-stitched and STUNNING. These are not a typical muslin swaddle——they’re an heirloom. And they do cost a *bit* more, but they make a wonderful gift———and they support a wonderful cause. One of their partner sewing units provides a safe place for women that have been trafficked or have suffered from domestic abuse. They make these blankets (and adorable hats and bibs) from sustainable materials and the quality is unreal. Hand-embroidered swaddle blankets.
And they’re BEAUTIFUL.
And I am so very happy to finally introduce them to you guys.
