Buy Multiple Muslins For Savings

Designed by up-and-coming artists, NINA muslins are full of creativity, inspiration, and stories. They're works of art in muslin form! And limited edition too. Only 100 will ever be made in each design. 

A parenting essential, ideal for swaddling, mopping up spills, breastfeeding, a little extra warmth in the buggy, or even acting as a sunshade. At 110cm x 110cm in size, they are extra large muslins meaning extra useful. 

You’ll immediately notice how soft and light our muslin blankets are. They are made in India from 100% organic cotton, with dyes that are Oeko-Tex certified, so are safe for delicate, newborn skin.

Perfect as a unique gift for new parents. For an extra something special, order a gift box too and we'll wrap it really nicely with a handwritten note, ready to send to your friend/family/colleague/neighbour/anyone with great taste.

Machine wash low and tumble dry low (if you can hang the muslin blankets out to dry that's always best).

About the design

Designed by Sasha Compton

"The original of this artwork was a lino print, inspired by one of my favourite paintings, Botticelli’s 'The Birth of Venus'. A shell can seem so small but have many functions; a place of home, a decorative ornament or a means of protection for example. There is so much beautiful detail in a very organic and fragile object, fitting for a goddess or a loved one...

I experimented first with the idea of bringing some of the ocean fluidity into the artwork by using a variety of watercolour washes, and in the end decided to keep it simple with more emphasis on the shells themselves...

I found this print challenging to create as the details needed to be carved very precisely into the lino print, and the lino needed to be lightly inked up to print the details well I like the foamy effect the ink created on some of the shells. I had to include cowry shells as love collecting them when on Scottish beaches." 

These muslins are extra large, you'll notice the difference!

At 110cm x 110cm in size, they are extra large muslins meaning extra useful. 

A parenting essential, ideal for swaddling, mopping up spills, breastfeeding, a little extra warmth in the buggy, or even acting as a sunshade.

Our large muslins are made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton by Chaitanya and his team in Northern India. All dyes are Oeko-Tex certified so have been tested to be safe and free from harmful chemicals.

By choosing organic cotton you’re making a good choice all round. It’s better for the environment since only natural processes are used to grow the cotton (e.g. ladybirds help to control pests rather than pesticides). No harmful chemicals (from pesticides or fertilizers) seep into waterways or degrade the soil. And less water is used compared to conventional cotton.

The GOTS certification also covers social standards like decent working hours and no child labour (which has shockingly been an issue in lots of cotton-growing areas around the world).

While a muslin blanket feels a world away from farmers’ fields, by choosing organic cotton you are helping to create a healthier environment for all those who make our products and for our future planet.
