Tilly + Cub

Tilly + Cub
Hello expecting mamas, I have something for you. These moses baskets from Tilly + Cub are so beautiful. And they have a matching version for little mini mamas and their dolls too.

The baskets are hand woven in Ghana and are very special because they are much more than beautiful. They are eco friendly, fair trade and sustainable on top. Something your family will treasure into the future.

The baskets are woven using dried Elephant Grass, which is native to West Africa. The grass is hand dyed using plant based & mineral dyes to achieve the bright and distinctive colours. The basket handles are covered by cured leather.
A custom made breathable mattress comes with each moses basket. It has been manufactured in the UK to ensure it meets all safety standards.

The best rainbow prints for the kids room

The best rainbow prints for the kids room

A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon! Caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky.

Rainbows appear in seven colours because water droplets break white sunlight into the seven colours of the spectrum. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. You can only see a rainbow if the Sun is behind you and the rain in front.
Rainbows are rare and beautiful. And kids love them. They make us happy, we love to draw them. We like to give them artistic variations and get creative with the colours.

Rainbows make great art for kids rooms because they are fun, gender neutral (fun fact right?!) and come in many different versions.

The band of colour in 16 different prints, one as gorgeous as the other! Which one is your favourite?

Here are the best rainbow prints for the kids room:
