When owner Robin Riggs was expecting her first child, she had a hard time finding accessories for the baby that were both stylish and affordable. She was sick of seeing baby blankets & bibs with traditional pastel colors and teddy bears.
So she decided to make her own using beautiful designer fabric, combined it with soft & snuggly minky fabric that the baby would love. For the record, I think minky fabric is the softest thing you can touch on the planet – a baby bunny’s belly would come a close second, but I still say minky is softer.
She named the company after her daughter, and the rest is history. Now Ella Jean has grown into a line of beautiful coordinating baby gifts: blankets, burp cloths, bibs, and soft blocks.
Here are just a few of the delectable items:
Kumari Blue Soft Blocks: You could design a whole nursery around these blocks, couldn’t you? I love the yummy colours and the non-facebonking softness of these.
Kumari Blue Blanket: You know what I love most about this – other than the wicked fabric and the baby bunny belly fabric – the size! This blanket is 35″ x 29″ which is a great size for wrapping up, going in the stroller, or using as a little playmat. Nothing drives me nuts than a baby blanket that’s too big (where’s the baby?!) or too small. This is the goldylocks size of baby blankets.
Pink Whale Burp Cloth Set: You’ll have a whale of a time being vomited on with these. Pun fun! (sorry). These are kick ass burp cloths though. They’re even lined with chenille.
Orange Allstar Bib: I love this colour combo. I love that it isn’t too boy or too girl. I also love that is longer and wider than typical bibs. Yep, I love this bib.
