Marloe London is a brand we were introduced to via our trip to Dot to Dot earlier this year (we were drawn to the array of gorgeous ice cream colours featuring on the swaddle scarves). Marloe London is the creation of two friends Marina and Chloe who have been sharing their journey through the highs and lows of parenthood and wanted to introduce an accessory which was not only useful but stylish. We loved talking to them; as well as having a fabulous idea for making beautiful and functional luxury swaddle scarves, they were both friendly and full of enthusiasm for their label…and we can easily see why.
The swaddle/muslin cloth has become a must have for mums. The Marloe is extremely large (140cm x 140cm) and, as a result can be used for a multitude of purposes from a shade over a baby’s pram or buggy to a breast feeding shawl to even a flattering sarong! Each swaddle scarf comes beautifully presented in a box and includes a handy little card full of ideas as to how to maximise the use you’ll get from it.
The fabric Marina and Chloe created (a blend of organic cotton and Bamboo viscose) makes the Marloe incredibly soft. Bamboo is great for sensitive skins and is known for its anti-bacterial and thermo-regulating properties which is a definite plus when looking at a product for a baby.
Not only can the Marloe be a wearable wardrobe piece and handy baby accessory, Marloe London can also personalise a swaddle scarf. If giving it as a gift, a child’s name or initials would be a perfect addition to this luxurious item which any new mum would find useful.
Georgie and Katie’s little ones are beyond baby years yet the Marloe has proved to be adaptable and, importantly, has washed well. It has been used in many situations already, from a (very cosy) scarf, to a blanket on a long car journey, to a picnic rug, to even an impromptu towel.
These swaddle scarves are so soft and of such good quality we think they are a perfect baby shower / new mum / generally being a fab mum gift. Ours will definitely be a permanent fixture when we’re out and about (and a definite holiday necessity). So you can also try a Marloe for yourself (or treat someone else to one – this is a perfect Mothers Day gift) Marloe have kindly offered readers a 15% discount off all dip dye swaddle scarves using “MAMBAM” at checkout (the offer includes personalisation and excludes delivery). This is valid until 31st March 2016.
Marlo very kindly sent us each a swaddle scarf to test out and see how we would use them. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
