I first came across this absolutely pearfect company Calico Clouds on Instagram when I was looking for baby products for my new arrival.
I just fell in love with all the beautiful prints and how you could have bespoke blankets made that were organic and super soft. Rufus had a growing theme of bears in the nursery so I purchased the Mr Bear blanket in soft grey tones which was perfect to go with his new room and the new grey I candy buggy. Obviously as a new mummy-to-be everything has to be co-ordinated within an inch of its life!
When the blanket came I was so happy with it and as I’d hoped it was super soft and would be just perfect for the new baby. Subsequently I went on to order more blankets for Rufus (Into The Wild another bear blanket) and friends. The blankets have been used all year round and were great for our baby yoga classes in the early days.
What I love about this brand was Leah’s ethos. Leah writes on her website “I care about what we wrap ourselves and our little people in. That’s why I take pride in sourcing organic fabric wherever possible. By using organic cotton I am able to have a positive impact on both the quality of the product and the environment. At the same time, much of our packaging is already recyclable and I am always striving to do better.” What’s not to love?
Calico Clouds is a small independent company not far from me in Bournville, Birmingham. Having worked for myself and been a one-man-band before I know the struggles to get your brand out there and all the hard work and dedication it takes. I feel it’s really important to support these companies and spread the word.
We have bought some lovely things for Rufus’s nursery and with our impending move I’m sure there will be more.
Leah kindly gifted Rufus this organic knitted pear teething rattle. He has loved it. It is made from organic soft cotton and the inner stuffing is filled with ethically sourced wool. The rattle has a “parent friendly” sounding small rattle inside. With it’s bright colours, soft touch and rattle it is a great stimulant to help develop babies motor skills.
Perfect for babies and toddlers its nice to have something different from all the other products out there and you can collect lot’s of different ones and have a fruit & veg bowl of them if you like!
You can find an array of products at Calico Clouds, so many more since I first came across this brand two years ago.
Just shows how Leah has gone from strength to strength with Calico Clouds – when you love what you do it shows!
