Gifts We Love

Every season, I look around for new summer blanket for my boys. We have some Ikea blankets that are functional, but disappoint me with the thought of my children swaddled in acrylic fuzz every night. I can do better!

My guilt was alleviated last week when a mother at school told me that her children’s clothing line Muny also included Indian hand blocked blankets. One type of blanket, traditionally for the summer, is called dohars. They are made from three layers of cotton and perfectly sized for toddler beds. The other blanket is quilted and come in various sizes (toddler, twin, queen). These are reversible with two different wood block patterns printed on cotton and lined with cotton batting. (Both are machine washable.)

I also like that the blankets are made in Jaipur, India using a traditional hand block printing process. The technique has resisted industrialization throughout the years and is still done without any mechanization. Since it is all done by hand, there are variations in each item so you they are unique.

You can get these on the Muny site, and she is giving Momfilter readers a 20% discount code: SAVE20  –this isn’t a sponsored post!
