why muslin?

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, here at aden + anais we are big believers in muslin’s long legacy and ability to bring caregivers and babies together.

  • Breathable and comfortable:
    safe for baby

    The open weave and lightweight fabric of muslin helps reduce the risk of baby overheating, while still providing comfort and warmth.

  • Durable and soft:
    gets better with age

    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.

  • Gentle and strong:
    ideal for swaddling

    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.
