About Öko créations
“Since August 2009, Öko Creations has been designing, manufacturing and distributing environmentally-friendly textile products for the whole family. Marie-Noël and Melanie Beetz, sisters with strong ecological and humanitarian values, are at the heart of this family business. Their unique experiences in textile design, health sciences and travel, combined with a childhood steeped in the smells of fabrics and the whir of sewing machines, led them to this path of entrepreneurship in the field of textile manufacturing.”
My first two children had no interest in blankets when they were babies and all of the adorable ones I so looked forward to using collected dust on the shelf. Looking back at those years I realize that it’s quite possible that they were just not happy with the ones I was offering them. As I prepared to welcome my third child into this world (with a greater knowledge of using eco-friendly products) I began searching for companies that made organic baby blankets. My search eventually let me to a wonderful company called Öko créations, a company that creates such elegant and high quality eco-friendly products for mom and baby. From bath towels to diaper bags, the collection is simply amazing and I am so in love with all their designs. I found myself especially fond of the beautiful Enchanted Forest Organic Cotton Baby Blanket, which has quickly become my newborn daughter’s favorite! They are not exaggerating on the description of this blanket when Öko créations states “A high quality blanket, so soft for baby’s skin!” The softness and stretchiness of this blanket reminds me of my baby wrap and it makes swaddling Adeline so easy.
As you can see from the smiles and content look on her face, Adeline adores this blanket just as much as I do. She is my first baby that actually holds blankets while napping and requires one when I rock her to sleep. Just today I draped this blanket across her as I rocked her to sleep and she fell asleep right away. I put her in her swing once asleep and she proceeded to clench the blanket and snuggle it for the remainder of her nap. She seems to sleep so much better during the day when I put her down for a nap with it and I am very confident it’s the softness that she loves. Fantastic quality and extreme softness aside… I am completely in love with this print! The colors and forest animals on the blanket are perfect and it’s such a breath of fresh air to escape from all the pinks and purples and indulge in a more earthy look. The fact that Öko créations creates their products with sensitive skin in mind means a lot to me, as my family is prone to hives and eczema if exposed to harsh scents or fabrics. Knowing that my baby is completely free of those harsh chemicals and rough fibers is very reassuring.
This blanket is truly a treasure and one that I know is going to be loved by my sweet baby girl for many years.
