Banabae is designed for the young and the young at heart. Positivity and playfulness are at the core of everything we do. Whether it is a gift for your own newborn or a friend, we guarantee our beautiful quality muslin wraps and luxurious knit blankets will be a favourite for many years to come.
As a new mum I was left pretty un-inspired by the offering of prints and fabric qualities on the muslin swaddles that came in so handy during those first few months of parenthood. As a textile designer I thought I could inject a little more fun and colour into these essential pieces of cloth. One that I would be happy to drape over my pram on our morning walks!
At Banabae we use sustainable (and super soft) bamboo, combined with organic cotton on all our woven swaddles. Each design is created in house and digitally printed by our amazing manufacturers in China.
Digital printing eliminates the creative limitations and environmental waste of traditional screen printing whilst also allowing the swaddles to keep their super soft handle. Its a win win!
The swaddles turned out so great I decided to extend the range to include our beautiful intarsia knit cashmere blend blankets. Designed with a little bit of nostalgia from my own childhood, these unisex 'Blankies' don't compromise on colour. They are the ultimate snuggly companion for the cot or in the pram.
We believe in the power of positivity and that every business has an opportunity to make the world a better place. Live on the bright side is an ethos we adhere to both in our unique designs and our business practices.
In light of this, we donate 5% of all Sales to Effective Altruism Australia.
We also strive to use the most environmentally sustainable products and manufacturing methods available.
We aim for transparency in our supply chain and have a friendly collaborative relationship with our suppliers.
