one of the most memorable new brands that caught my eye at playtime new york a couple months ago is ellie fun day. i knew i wanted to tell you guys about them the minute i saw them! founded by the sweetest husband/wife team of sarah and elton lin, ellie fun day (named after sarah's own baby blanket 'elephant pei' -- pei means blanket in cantonese) offers these amazingly soft and adorable multi-layered muslin blankets that are good for babies and good for the world.
they create their organic, handcrafted, hand-embroidered blankets with the help of a group of marginalized women in india who receive a fair wage along with crisis counseling, education and housing in return.
each blanket is adorned with a repeating object embroidered onto it, with one fun little surprise. the layered muslin is perfect for any season, and the neutral, unisex colors will go with pretty much any room. these blankets would also make the perfect baby shower gift! shop e l l i e f u n d a y
