Oh, baby! Introducing, Henry & Bros, a company focused on beautiful baby blankets for babies and tots. Founded by a mom with her Ph.D. in textile design, you can only expect the best, the softest, and the most luxurious of designs. Woven with brightly colored dyed yarns so the fashionably colorful patterns are visible on both fabric sides, these blankets have been made with yarn-dyed stripes and checks which are fade-resistant and have deeper color saturation (in comparison to muslin fabrics). Prepare to fall in love… we sure have!
When Jennie came to Asia in her early twenties to work in the textile production industry, she learned the specifics of fabric manufacturing and quality design. Falling in love with textile design she also earned herself a PhD. When she became a mother, she recognized a major gap in the market for quality cotton baby and toddler blankets. With her experience in textiles and connections, she knew she could make a range of affordable, lovely blankets. And after all, all kids love their blankies!
Their blankets are all made with 100% natural cotton fibers. The fabric has been specifically engineered with a three dimensional structure which allows air to move through the fabric easily, while retaining optimal body temperature. These blankies have a light, lofty feel due to the 3-D design. Such light breathability is ideal for hot and humid South East Asian climates such as Singapore and Hong Kong.
A lot of thought has gone into the design of the product. Each blanket has been woven with dyed yarns rather than printing on the fabric. In this way, there is beautiful design on both sides of the blanket and the color is more true without color fading. The blankets are machine washable and due to the specialized weaving structure, they are quick-drying and ultra-light. This summer they are launching baby and toddler duvet/pillowcase bedding sets. Watch this space!
We love a company that gives back! Henry and Bros have donated over 2,000 blankets to charities in Hong Kong and the USA. Children from deprived homes get to feel a little bit of love from these beautiful blankies. They’ve also donated bibs to babies in need, where impoverished babies and newborns would otherwise go without. The Founder is passionate about giving back so stay tuned for more of their generous initiatives.
Due to popular demand they will be making adult sized blankets (hoorah!!). Often sneaking in a snuggle of their kids blankets due to their large size, they saw an opportunity to include the entire family. These blankets are also popular living room throws because they are made with two layers for a thicker, warmer blanket.
