CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Our products get even softer and more nurturing with each wash!

They have all been pre-washed multiple times, to ensure the fabric doesn’t shrink and the colours don’t run.

Protect the environment: Gentle wash at 30 degrees, with similar colours. Do not tumble dry or dry clean.

Khushi Kantha means “happy blanket” in Bengali – a fitting name for the social enterprise behind these beautifully vibrant baby blankets that do good. 

The brand was set up to create sustainable employment for women in Bangladesh, after founder Laura was gifted a bundle of traditional, hand-stitched kantha blankets for her newborn half-Bangladeshi twins. The brand’s artisans are a community of mothers in the village of Rajarampur in north-west Bangladesh.

Khushi Kantha has four key values driving their ethical business. Resilience ensures the blankets are designed to last, instilled with the strength of the mothers who make them. Regeneration centres breathing new life into everything they do, from upcycling materials to regenerating local communities. 

Re-envisaging community means the team is always thinking up ways to use collaborative power to build better futures for everyone. And lastly, Khushi Kantha is all about reframing the narrative. They champion “made in Bangladesh” as a statement of pride through their blankets, which show off exquisite local craftsmanship. 

The distinctive, high-quality blankets are a handy addition to any new parent’s baby bag, coming to the rescue in all kinds of scenarios. They can double up as a make-shift changing mat, a pram liner, playmat, breastfeeding cover or sunshade. 

Each Khushi Kantha blanket arrives in a reusable cotton drawstring bag, handcrafted from a vintage sari off-cut, together with a photo and story about its maker. Follow in the Bangladeshi tradition of gifting one to the parents-to-be in your life.
