dot street baby blanket
This super soft Baby Blanket or Swaddle is perfect for baby girls and boys and has been hand block printed in the busy city of Jaipur, which is exactly where the inspiration for our streetscape design calls from!
A sprawling print of turreted buildings, palm trees and turban-clad men, this design is subtle yet encapsulates the bustling, somewhat organised chaos of all Indian cities. As your baby grows, they can start to spot the hidden tigers and racing tuk tuks!
The reverse side of the blanket or swaddle has also been hand printed in a simple dot print, in the same soft grey.
Hand Block Printing is a technique that is highly regarded and highly practiced throughout Jaipur. It has been practiced for centuries and Masters have their skills perfectly honed. The blocks are firstly hand carved from soft teak wood, patiently chipped and carved until the design is just perfect. Meanwhile the colour Master works on mixing the dyes to just the right hue, all matched by eye. The block is then dipped into the dye and carefully stamped across the fabric, with the Master skilfully matching each block to the last as he goes.
The Dot Street Baby Blanket is made up of three layers of super soft cotton voile - the two outer layers with the printed design and the middle layer in plain white. The makes it a perfect blanket, swaddle or wrap that is light enough for summer, but can easily be layered in winter.
The baby blanket is then finished with a soft charcoal and white ticking stripe cord piping - it’s all about the subtle details!
