Animal Alphabet Baby Blanket

90.00

I designed this animal alphabet blanket when I was pregnant with my daughter!

Each letter of the alphabet is illustrated with a different animal that I drew and carved onto blocks of linoleum before printing it by hand. All 26 prints were then gathered into a grid and made into a big screen print. Each blanket is printed by hand using an oversized screen and a very long table, in the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn. We use non-toxic black ink and the finest linen in the world, made in Belgium using only sustainable, pesticide-free production methods.

The blanket measures 44x31" and is made of medium weight ivory linen. It can be used as a summer blanket, playmat, stroller cover or can be hung on the wall above the crib or changing pad to provide baby with lots of high contrast creatures to look at. (My daughter really likes the monkey and the goat.) Oh and it's machine-washable, goes in the dryer and only gets softer with each wash.

(And for those of you who like to play with natural dyes, linen as a natural fiber takes dyes really well. If you're into it, try onion skins, avocado pits or indigo to turn your blanket into a true one-of-a-kind heirloom piece.)
