I don’t remember how long I’ve wanted to include baby blankets in the Tula line-up, but the real journey started about two years ago while visiting textile mills in Europe. At the time, I was looking into weaving Tula Woven Wraps. What a wonderful journey that was; trying different blends, choosing weaving patterns and working with some amazing old-world masters. It was then that I first felt the fabric for the blankets Baby Tula will be introducing to our line-up this November.
At first, I was blown away by how incredibly soft and plush this bamboo fabric felt. The weave wasn’t like anything else I’d touched before and I was so impressed with the quality of the printing. When the weavers showed me how they could make jacquard blankets using variations on this weave, I knew the Tula community needed these!
Finally this summer, while back in Europe, I was able to work with our partner textile mill to choose prints and jacquard designs for our first line. I designed Tula Baby Blankets to coordinate with Tula Baby Carriers, both some new canvases and some favorite woven wrap patterns. I love that by creating blankets, Tula fans will have yet another way to snuggle their babies and enjoy their favorite prints.
These Tula Baby Blankets are made from 100% bamboo, making them cozy yet breathable. I can’t wait to share them with you, I know they’ll make the perfect addition to your collection for snuggling, swaddling or gifting.
I hope you love them as much as I do! ~Ula
