Fab Fabrics: Organic Prints from Baby Bird Design

How sweet are these organic cotton prints from Baby Bird Design? I ran across Emily’s shop over the weekend, and I’ve got to say: I’m swooning from cuteness!

Emily Burger, proprietress of Baby Bird Design, is a stay-at-home mom and freelance designer who’s just recently gotten into fabric design. She says she’s chose to print her designs on organic cotton because:

I love to know that I’m creating fabric for childrens items that are healthy for them. My fabrics are 100% organic cotton and come in either knit or sateen. No chemicals or dyes are used as they are made with water based inks.

She’s got all sorts of fabric themes from forest and jungle creatures to the basics like polka dots and stripes. I’m particularly smitten with this Forest Friends pattern.

All of her fabrics are certified organic by Global Organic Textile Standards. You can find Emily’s designs in the Baby Bird Design Etsy shop and her other shop, Wall Candy.

    Great to see organic fabrics for children at last, and they are a really lovely design, too. I’m sure most people are unaware of the fact that many fabrics contain susbstances such as formaldehyde to improve crease resistance and make the fabrics ‘easy care’. These chemicals offgas into the room from curtains, covers etc. and can also pass through the baby’s skin into their blood stream from clothing. We will be adding more organic products to our site in the next couple of months.
