Muslin is a finely-woven breathable fabric believed to have originated in Bangladesh during the Middle Ages.* One of the purest, simplest, most gentle and, in our opinion, most perfect fabrics in the world, Aden + Anais are big believers in muslin’s long legacy and ability to bring caregivers and babies together.
The open weave and lightweight fabric of muslin helps reduce the risk of baby overheating, while still providing comfort and warmth. A workhorse fabric, any products woven in the natural fiber of muslin have the ability to withstand countless washes and become softer—and better—with age. The delicate, yet durable weave of muslin evokes stretchiness and a ‘natural give’ which allows the swaddle to be tucked snugly around baby—without being overly restrictive.
