I am not sure if anyone else has noticed the incredible number of BABIES and / or pregnant bellies in Melbourne at present.  It is quite the baby boom.  They’re popping up everywhere, I tell ya!  Luckily, babies are super cute and I quite like hugging them and tickling them, as long as I can give them back afterwards :)

The thing is, BABIES = GIFTS.   At present I am finding myself constantly on the hunt for new and gorgeous baby-related gifts… and you can’t go buying every expectant Mum the same thing now, can you!?

Never fear!  The clever girls at Ink & Spindle have joined forces with Dana Leviston of Twiglet to produce Inklet – an ULTRA CUTE range of T-shirts, bibs and baby blankets for the stylish indie tot!  (Twiglet + Ink & Spindle = Inklet, get it!?). I am DYING with the cuteness of that Pirates and Sea Creatures print on grey marle!  SO gorgeous, and geniously unisex. There is no longer any excuse to dress your little person exclusively in pastel-y powdery hues!  It’s all about the GREY MARLE, people.

Of course as with ALL Ink & Spindle things, the Inklet range is 100% certified organic, printed using eco-friendly inks and manufactured in Australia (even the jersey!).  The fabric is printed by hand in Ink & Spindle’s studio in Kensington, and the garments are designed and sampled in house by Dana, seamstress extraordinaire, who shares the same studio space!  It doesn’t get more local, ethical or handcrafted than that!

Love your work ladies!
