Shibori Natural Indigo Dye Baby Bandana Bibs

I made some new bibs. They are triangle neckerchief style.

They will be available in our etsy shop for international customers or at aiaii.blue for customers based in Japan.

These are 100% cotton, double gauze. The double gauze is nice and absorbent for all that baby dribble. Hands up who else has a soggy baby? It can also help with sweat rash if you happen to live in a stupidly muggy place (Japan). Just put a fresh one on once it gets damp. Another benefit of the gauze is it a woven fabric that stretches when pulled on the diagonal. That means it has give around the baby’s neck.

I made two designs. The first is baby blue with rich deep indigo zebra stripes. Lets call it ‘baby blue zebra’.

Design number 2 has some ‘hotaru’ firefly circles and some experimental stitch resist parts.  It’s dyed with a slight gradient from dark to mid-blue.

So here is our model (aged 1 year and 2 months) just learning to walk.

As you can see he’s quite pleased with himself about that.

A small plastic popper for easy putting on and taking off.

And here is the firefly design. I think it looks very stylish. They work great with plain white clothes or matched up with more indigo (of course!) . It would also be cute to wear with a mum who had a matching scarf..
