There are some delightful things happening at aden+anais. Gorgeous new designs replicated across the range of products that they do so well (oversized muslins, blankets, sleeping bags and much more) with prints for hippychicks, little princesses and dapper chaps.
From the pink and grey florals of Meadowlark (which remind me of cherry blossom in the city) to the chic statement of inky blue Indigo, the bold tribal prints of Flip Side and the crisp, cool tones of Kindred – the new collection is both striking and elegant (as you’ve come to expect from this brand if you’re a fan/addict). View the new designs in full here.
It’s something of a running joke that I will always have one of aden+anais’ bamboo muslins knotted on the strap of my handbag. People think this is silly, but actually it is the perfect ‘reach for’ place when there’s an impromptu spill (me or the kids), or need for an emergency hand wipe. What many don’t realise however is that these muslins are washed almost every day and are really put through their paces (the other day for cleaning the car windscreen when I parked under a tree, for example!)
All aden+anais muslins get softer with washing (and having the corners sucked by little ones) – and this is even true if you use supermarket brand washing powder and a high setting or accidentally chuck them in with jeans – but the bamboo ones really do have an exceptional kitten-softness which makes a difference if your little ones have sensitive skin (try one out over a case of chicken pox and you’ll see what I mean…) The designs are so pretty that you could actually wear them as a scarf (one of our team’s daughters stopped using her muslin as a blankie and started wearing it as a shawl as a sign of being ‘grown up’ recently) and I’ve even used one as a tablecloth in the past.
