Luxury and comfort. Remarkably Markian.

Keep your little angel snug or present a mom-to-be with the perfect baby shower gift with the Dion Organic Cotton Baby Blanket. 

Our baby blankets are individually woven on Mungo's 100-year-old Lancashire looms. Weaving the blankets on the antique shuttle looms allows for a looser tension than the new-school rapier looms. The end result? You have a baby blanket with a softer feel and a self-finished edge that prevents the fabric from fraying or unravelling (known as a ‘true selvedge’). 

These baby blankets are a win for both mums and the environment. Made from pure organic cotton which has been organically grown in pesticide-free fields, Mungo baby blankets are non-toxic to babies and the earth. 

The textural weave is designed to be gentle and soothing to soft skin – making it ultra-comfortable for your bub. The Mungo Organic Cotton Baby Blankets are woven with a traditional basket twill weave that is warm and chunky, but also loose and breathable – making it equally suited for the warm summer months. 

Our baby blanket range is designed, woven, and made at the Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa.

"The way I encourage people to use clothes is to amplify their own identity. And that's what I'm trying to encourage with the types of products that I design." - Dion Lee

Dion Lee is a designer brand hailing from Sydney, Australia, established in 2009 by its eponymous Creative Director. Renowned for experimental construction combined with traditional tailoring, the brand has pioneered a modern identity for Australian fashion.

Born in 1985, Lee debuted at Australian Fashion Week in 2009 after graduating from Sydney Institute of Technology the prior year. Lee was the first designer to stage a runway presentation at the Sydney Opera House in 2010. The morning presentation captured the optimism and youthful spirit of the Australian brand and was followed with international acclaim and commercial support from retailers in Australia and abroad.

The Dion Lee aesthetic is technical with an intelligent sensuality. Each collection marries innovative construction, with a consciousness of the form. Textiles are engineered to form sculptural embellishments.  Architectural silhouettes are dissected to enhance movement and the flow of air and light. 

After debuting at Australia Fashion Week, Dion Lee presented collections in London before relocating to New York, where the brand has become a permanent fixture on the seasonal schedule. 

In early 2013, Dion Lee announced that iconic Australian fashion brand, Cue Clothing Company, had acquired a shareholding in the Dion Lee business.
