Are you excited? I AM!
Time to kick off Listen to Lena’s month-long series of features on Canadian artists – plus giveaways – with It’s One of A Kind!
Now it’s no secret that I’m a One of A Kind Art Show JUNKIE. I gleefully wait every winter and spring to visit my favourite artisans and indulge in their unique, fashionable and always trend-setting goodies.
One of my most anticipated stops is Bamboo Lily. Created by local design guru Lillian Chiu, she offers up a chic line of Asian-inspired baby and toddler clothing using the ultimate in sustainable living: rayon from bamboo fabric.
Nice to know:
Bamboo Lily is the ultimate in green luxury! Rayon from Bamboo fabric is a renewable resource that has a cashmere-like texture,and is so incredibly soft. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world – making it a sustainable and renewable resource. It is also eco-friendly as it doesn’t need pesticides or fertilizers to grow. It wicks moisture from the skin; keeping baby’s delicate skin cool and dry.
Need to know:
These fashions are beyond adorable. Baby onesies, hoodies, dresses, hats, kung fu pants and more – all with painstaking attention to detail and fun, flirty pictures and sayings such as “Miso Cute“, “I Love House Music“, “Buddha Belly” and more. Could it get better? Indeed! The quality is SUPERB. The clothing is incredibly soft and smooth. It’s the perfect compliment to baby’s delicate skin, and is strongly recommended for babies with eczema or other skin conditions. The material is just about all-natural with NO chemical treating of any kind.
Need to have:
The new swaddling blankets and the popular baby blankets. Lillian graciously sent Baby Reid the most supple, perfectly posh blanket trimmed with a gorgeous Chinese Brocade border – personalized with his name!
I was immediately impressed with how luxurious it was – the kind of blanket you want to put to your face and softly stroke. Combine that with the fact that it’s lightweight, breathable and just cozy enough, and you’ve got quite conceivably the PERFECT blanket. The personalization option makes it wonderful gift for baby showers, birthdays, or just because. I’ve already decided that this is my new signature gift item – so guess what preggo friends… you’ve got one coming your way! (If ordering online, the blanket arrives beautifully wrapped and ready to give.)
JUST FOR YOU!
