You heard it hear first: Modern Burlap is officially available on SA shores! And we’re giving you 20% off!
I am a sucker for fabric prints, designs and patterns. So I have had my eye on Modern Burlap (together with the other 146k Instagram followers) for a while now. But I couldn’t get my hands on the actual product because it wasn’t available locally. Until now. Thanks to Full of Beans Baby & Kids Boutique, Modern Burlap has officially been ticked off my wish list… and I am the proud new owner of one of these blankets (I chose the Greatest Adventure one).
The Brand: Meet Modern Burlap
Now as you know, my all time favourite baby blanket is aden + anais (read more about this brand here), but their prints are a lot more understated. Think pretty pastels, newborn neutrals and gentle hues, as opposed to the high intensity monochrome of Modern Burlap.
Modern Burlap speaks to the boldness of motherhood – its memories & moments that form the tapestry of this journey.
My favourite thing about this brand is the way the blanket has become a statement of beliefs & dreams.
The brand has managed to create an entire pop culture and social language of collective motherhood. The blanket is part of the hopes, dreams, milestones (and all the memories in between) of mothers around the world.
Since the beginning, our customers have been our village, our family, and the faces behind the Modern Burlap brand. It is the greatest joy to be a part of your moments and days. We’ve felt your joy, peace, love, gratitude, kindness, honesty, perseverance,
humility, and everything in between. You are Modern Burlap.
Made from 100% organic cotton muslin, Modern Burlap is not just about the trendy prints. A large part of the brand ethos is that they only use breathable, pre-washed and natural eco-friendly cotton. And the blankets feel as beautiful as they look (in my honest opinion, aden + anais still wins in the softness department though).
But it’s a good thing that babies need a lot more than one blanket 🙂 So you need not deny yourself.
The range consists of Saying / Scripture Swaddles (the big brush-script sayings across the full blanket) and Patterned Swaddles (regular trendy monochrome prints).
One thing is for certain, if you are doing a baby photoshoot, you need a Modern Burlap blanket. I love how the blankets have become actual “props” in baby photography. And they’re also popular as part of your nursery decor – as a hanging tapestry to create a feature wall.
