This design is inspired by the enormous blooms spotted in London’s flower stalls during the Summer which make our days extra happy. Living in South Africa we would see these bloom in December (Summertime), hence the nickname “Christmas Roses.”
Our muslin swaddles are such an essential item for any mamma to carry along – being used to cuddle and provide comfort to a new born baby during the early days, right through to the toddler years as a comforter or “blankie.”
They are extra large in size (120cm x 120cm) and made from a luxuriously soft 70% Bamboo 30% Cotton blend.
My name is Lara & started Sweet Pea in June 2020.
I work from home & have a daughter (almost 4 yrs old) and new baby boy (10 weeks old).
Emma, my daughter (is my Sweet Pea) and her special companion, “Donkey” (the little character you might’ve spotted in the logo) have been together since birth.
The idea for Sweet Pea was inspired by our many walks together and surroundings filled with so many different things, I couldn’t help seeing the little things through a child’s eyes.
A muslin swaddle is the one item I always carry along in my bag and to me is such an essential item – being used to cuddle and provide comfort to a new born baby during the early days right through to toddler years as a comforter or “blankie.”
When deciding on a fabric for Sweet Pea muslin swaddles, the 70% Bamboo 30% Cotton blend was my first choice as this not only makes for a baby soft feel but is also kind to the environment.
This was one of my aims – to keep everything from fabric to packaging as eco-friendly as possible, as ultimately it is our responsibility as guardians of the little ones to leave something behind for the next generation.
