Everything Starts Somewhere

This is our story.


Hello! And a big Thank You for stopping by our little corner of the world wide web.

I’m Leah, the human behind the machine (and most of the creations at Calico Clouds). I make it my mission, one stitch at a time, to bring colour and happiness to you and your little people.

My first ever blanket was made for a close friend who had a little boy. I wanted to give her a gift that was funky, organic and high quality – something to impress the new baby AND his yummy mummy! Much searching later, I was struggling to find the answer. That’s when I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I bought a second hand sewing machine from a sewing shop and some nautical fabric, and got to work.

After seeing my friend’s reaction (and her snuggle-icious baby in the blanket), I decided to keep sewing…

I care about what we wrap ourselves and our little people in. That’s why I take pride in sourcing organic fabric wherever possible. By using organic cotton I am able to have a positive impact on both the quality of the product and the environment. At the same time, much of our packaging is already recyclable and I am always striving to do better.

Alongside the core range of blankets – where it all began – Calico Clouds is also thrilled to offer a selection of other products that match our high standards. That’s why the popular dinosaur theme of some of our prints can now be found in a range of stunning ‘dino’ lamps for your little person’s bedroom (keep it a secret, but plenty of grown-ups like them too…).

Similarly, your baby may be at an age where the perfect accompaniment to one of our super-soft blankets is a carrot teething rattle – cute, practical and made from organic cotton, naturally. They are stuffed full of soft wool which is also bio-degradable.

With unique cards, designed and made by yours truly, Calico Clouds always looks to offer something memorable and different. So if it’s a bespoke blanket you’re after, with a print you don’t see on the website, drop us a line (hello@calicoclouds.com) – custom products are right up our street! Or, if you would like your purchase gift wrapped and shipped directly to friends or family, just say the word.

We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy bringing them to you. And thanks again for finding us.
