Designer of the Week - Boondie Baby

On Saturday afternoon, I experienced one of those moments that makes me truly appreciate the creative wonder that is {KID} independent. I made a trip to visit a friend with a newborn, to gift her with a delicious Boondie Baby mini fleecy and matching comfort toy, and to seek her opinion for my Designer of the Week review. Newborns + new handmade products = happy, happy day!

The Product Review

Before I discuss beautiful babies bundled up in Boondie Baby goodness… I should start by sharing my appreciation for the lovely 100% cotton mustard blossom fabric. Perfectly paired with cream and silvery grey, the Mini Fleecy is lined with certified organic cotton fleece, which is super soft and velvety and ultra warm in winter.

“This is a beautifully modern set with a stylish design that I would be proud to display anywhere in my home. The organic fleece is very snuggly for a newborn, and the workmanship is superb. I also like that it’s machine washable, and it’s the perfect size (70cm x 75cm) for keeping my baby warm when she’s out in the pram”. [Reviewed by Krystal, Mum to 1 month old Louisa].

In the matching set, you’ll find the Mustard Blossom Comfort Toy, which is also made from organic cotton fleece (40cm x 40cm). This i s definitely one to add to your favourites list for upcoming baby shower gifts!

The Verdict… Precious, Practical and Perfectly Handcrafted

The Indie Label

Boondie Baby came to life in January 2011 after the birth of designer Lauren’s third child. She explains, “I had an urge to create something practical, modern and stylish as I just couldn’t find the style I was after in a store. I just adore creating something unique for a new baby, matching their nursery items, but most importantly offering mums something modern and handmade that you can’t find anywhere else”.

Having a background in design and the customer service industry, Lauren decided to expand her skills and give her little dream an opportunity to become reality. She started with a simple Facebook page, added a website a few months later and the rest is history! Lauren now has a wonderful little team of people that work together to build the Boondie Baby collection.

The Creative Mind

Lauren is Mum to three beautifully busy children; Jay (8), Mia (6) and Summer (2). She draws her design inspiration from gorgeous bold fabrics that compliment your home, while also giving your nursery a contemporary edge.

Lauren explains, “Our design process all starts with practicality. Most of our products are ‘needed’ items for babies and children and then we have playful accessories for their Nurseries and rooms. Being a mum myself I always go for simple, practical, stand out designs that are functional, but also feature stunning fabrics. Every item is tried and tested right here in my own home”.

The Whimsical Spirit

Here’s three fascinating facts about Lauren (in her own words):

  1. I love running.

  2. I enjoy quality wine and cheese.

  3. I love renovating!

The Handmade Collection

The Boondie Baby collection includes cot quilts, crib blankets, nursery linen sets and newborn baby gifts. You can view the full collection at the Boondie Baby website, or visit Lauren on Facebook for all the latest news.
