One glimpse of this adorable mom and baby brand, and you can’t help but fall in love. Bohemian baby lifestyle brand Rikshaw Design is known for its Indian block printed baby apparel, accessories and bedding. Recently, they launched bedding and kurtas for moms! Their chic kurtas are block printed on incredibly soft Indian cotton voile and include hand stitched details. They come in a traditional style which fits like a tunic for $70, and tuxedo style which fits like a blouse for $85.
We were able to experience first hand the superior quality in both design and manufacturing when we received the gorgeous Udaipur Kurta. Long enough to wear as a swimsuit cover up, and stylish enough to wear out and about over jeans or shorts, we loved how lightweight and soft the fabric was. Easy to dress up or down, this is our new favorite versatile wardrobe addition. And for those who love the mommy and me look, there’s even a matching baby size.
Browsing through the collection, you’re hard pressed to select just one item. Cute bloomers, sunhats, babysacks and adorable burp & bib sets, and diaper pouches all in fresh, bright, colorful designs are just a few of the items that caught our eye.
Founder Catherine Fitzsimmons’ travels took her to India where she fell in love with the people and the beauty of the country. Captivated by the tradition of Indian block-printing, Catherine dreamt of a way to bring the compelling color combinations and charming imperfections of block printing to a lifestyle collection here in the states.
“Watching the Indian artisans create gorgeous block printed textiles in person left me mesmerized”, says Catherine. “I fell in love with the imperfections of a block print, the saturated colors, and the true artistry and dedication that it takes to finish just one meter of fabric. I instantly knew that I wanted to incorporate those techniques with my design sensibility for pattern and color, to create a line that would be loved both by the child as well as the parent. While our customers might first be drawn in by the prints and color palette, they are won over by our quality- each piece is soft, comfortable, and truly get better with age,” says Fitzsimmons.
