This new Winter 2017 collection is definitely reason for celebration! One of our favourites, Kate & Kate have teamed up with the incredibly talented Sydney interior design house, Arent&Pyke to bring us Carnival which we’re bursting to show you!
After 18 months of development, Kate and Kate with Juliette (Arent) and Sarah-Jane (Pyke) have released a collection which effortlessly combines the Arent&Pyke style with the Kate & Kate aesthetic. A celebration of celebrations, there’s a lot of super fun new pieces and some seriously cute new baby blankets including possibly our favourite wee Benny Alpaca blanket.
As well as gorgeous baby blankets there’s also new linen throws, cushions, tablecloths and napkins. We’ve talked about the linen throws before with the last collection and how versatile they are – blanket, beach throw, wall hanging, table cloth, picnic rug (we love a good multi-purpose item for a busy family)
You can see the full new collection here which is available for pre-order right now (there’s an option to personalise your blanket with an embroidered name making a perfect keepsake or gift!!).
The Indoor / Outdoor Playmats are made from natural tree rubber and are a completely safe and eco-friendly solution for little ones while learning to sit up and play. As opposed to other foam mats on the market, these are non toxic, free from nasty chemicals as well as being 100% biodegradable! Definitely a VERY useful item to use at home or on the go (includes a convenient carry bag for travelling and storage), non-slip, easy clean AND there is three beautiful patterns to choose from.
For a softer touch there’s also the new Reversible Quilted Blankets / Indoor Playmats! Made from organic cotton with four different ultra sweet patterns to choose from these are the perfect wee double purpose play mat and blanket for your own bub or baby shower gift (gender neutral options – hooray!).
Have a look through the designs with us and then check out the Indoor/Outdoor Rubber Playmats here and the Reversible Cotton Quilted Blankets here
We’ve talked about the fabulous Franjo’s Kitchen before and their Tanker Topper Biscuits (for breast feeding) as well as their Belly Bump Biscuits (for pregnancy). They now also have a range of cleverly coined crackers for your cans and crackers for your cravings (for both breast feeding and pregnancy). Yum!! We are so impressed with the quality of Franjo’s products, a must for pregnancy and breastfeeding mamas. These would also make a beautiful baby shower gift!! (See their amazing Christmas GIFT BOXES on sale this week ONLY!)
With all of the recipes are naturopath/nutritionist created and approved, Franjo’s biscuits and crackers are full of goodness for Mums and Mums to be. Both pregnancy and breastfeeding demand a lot from your body. Not having the time to prepare healthy snacks while juggling babies and lacking in energy is exactly where Franjo’s comes in! The pregnancy crackers are specially made (vegan, gluten free, dairy free, egg free and sugar free!) to be an easy, nutrient dense snack that can be eaten alone, dipped in soup or topped with any range of things (avocado & tomato, cheese, pesto… check here for more ideas). The belly bump biscuits are equally great, filled with superfoods for those minerals and essential fats needed in pregnancy as well as calcium while remaining dairy free AND free from refined sugars!
The lactation (Tanker Topper) cookies and crackers are also made with Mums in mind and full of goodness to keep that milk flowing, reduce sugar cravings and give you that extra energy you need while breastfeeding. Also free from wheat, dairy, egg and refined sugar, these really are an all round PERFECT snack for mamas! It is a must, must, MUST to take care of YOURSELF during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and these tick all the boxes! Speaking of boxes, we’d definitely recommend taking advantage of the one week only Gift Boxes on sale now! (or grab a box for a friend!)
Our heads are swimming in the beautiful world of Kate & Kate. Luxurious natural fibres of linen and hand woven cotton mix with bright pops of colour, free-form hand drawn shapes and contrasting geometric designs. The new Eastern Point Summer range is on… point!
We’ve talked about Australian brand, Kate & Kate before and we’re overjoyed to see their range expand since we talked about them last (these guys are ones to follow!!). As well as GORGEOUS 100% cotton baby blankets (which are soft, breathable and a nice generous size perfect for babies AND kids! – Hooray!) we’re also totally crazy about the Linen throws! Linen is such a luxury fabric and these throws bring them into everyday life even for a busy family. You can use them not only as a blanket (for the couch or bed) but also a beach throw, wall hanging, table cloth or a picnic rug. Multi-purpose – Yeesss!
Cushions.. Cotton Blankets.. Tea Towels… Napkins.. Ahh they’re all so beautiful!! Have a scroll through with us and see their whole collection here
