Pre-baby, my husband and I enjoyed exotic vacations and adventures. Since becoming parents, we have decided to put a few things on hold for the time being such 15 hours flights! While travelling the far east back in the day however, I fell in love with rich, handwoven, painted fabrics and gorgeous block prints. I have always wanted to incorporate more of these worldly designs into my home but never imagined doing it in the nursery. I now have proof that this look transcends beautifully into baby. Introducing Rikshaw Design…
Rikshaw Design is a baby bedding company based out of San Francisco specializing in hand block printed Indian cotton textiles, designed especially for the “bohemian baby” (and parents!). The designer/owner, Catherine Fitzsimmons, is a former textile designer for Pottery Barn and Ralph Lauren who noticed that the baby bedding could use something new and different.
Rickshaw currently offers four bedding collections along with pillows, diaper pouches, burp cloth and bib sets.
In our opinion, it’s incredibly refreshing to see crib bedding options beyond cute characters, polka dots and stripes. Catherine has done a brilliant job incorporating a casual, global look and feel into a baby’s world with an ancient art form.
