Snuggly designs with the environment in mind
We love the super-soft Minky material that is perfect for snuggles, nap time or movie night. All Blankids’ inks are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified – this means they are environmentally-friendly and free from harmful chemicals.
All Blankids’ blankets are wrapped in custom-printed, eco-friendly tissue paper inside a reusable calico bag. The team at No Issue Tissue designed the eco-friendly tissue which can also be reused or repurposed. All of this comes packaged in a 100% home compostable plant-based Dirtbag mailer. We love Blankids commitment to plastic-free packaging.
Here at Minty, we are always on the lookout for home-grown brands that are designing unique, fun, yet practical products for babies and kids. When we discovered the work of these Brisbane-based ladies creating custom made blankets, we knew it would be a hit! Check it out online here Blankids or on Insta @blankids_au
