Spain, Inés RiR Diseño / Inés Rodríguez, Baby Blanket with Blue Lavender Border
HANDMADE BABY BLANKETS- D-leite Collection
The casein fiber is extracted from the leftover milk not suitable for human consumption. It is sustainable, so that its manufacture does not involve chemical processes and the consumption of water for its production is very low. This is how a certified ecological fiber is achieved, with an appearance similar to shiny silk, very soft and respectful of people and the environment.
In our Textile Study we are interested in incorporating more and more ecological fibers, producing clear benefits for both users and the environment. Milk fiber being a highly absorbent, antibacterial, hypoallergenic and biodegradable material; And thinking about the clear relationship that exists between breast milk and babies, we consider it an ideal fiber for making newborn lullaby blankets. With these blankets a sensory bond will be created in which the touch, as well as the smell, will benefit both the mother and the child, wrapping them both during intimate moments such as breastfeeding.
Taking care of the details ...
Manual processes are essential in creating these blankets.
D-leite is a blanket woven on a handmade loom made with merino wool and certified organic milk fiber. Based on the textile tradition of yesteryear and in combination with this novel fiber, each one is different from the last.
In memory of the old grandmothers' blankets, which were finished off with embroidery, we have incorporated this detail into our new D-Leite collection. In this way, we add a touch of color and exclusivity to the natural tone of the blanket.
To achieve these colors we have dyed the milk fiber naturally with local plants, such as blackberries, ferns or fig leaves. The result is soft, unisex shades suitable for timeless children's environments
