baby gifting with atelier choux paris
When we were first approached by Daniella Gelman and Nicholas Smolarski, founders of baby brand Atelier Choux Paris, we were immediately drawn to the beauty of their heirloom quality baby swaddles (or carré in French). Our brands were new at the time - kodomo and Atelier Choux - and now years later, we are still proud to be one of their first and longest continuing retailers in the US.
Atelier Choux's carrés are one of our favorite gifts for baby showers and newborns.
Their multi-purpose carrés are an elegant everyday essential. They can be used as a swaddle, a nursing or stroller cover, or even as a special blanket for tummy time. They're also beautiful as a collectible piece of art, for the whole family to enjoy.
The signature GOTS certified organic cotton weave was developed specifically for Atelier Choux alongside an eco-certified factory in France, in order to create an ultra-soft, breathable and absorbable fabric that serves as the perfect backdrop to showcase their whimsical prints.
Atelier Choux works with acclaimed Swedish illustrator Mattias Adolfsson who is recognized around the world for his whimsical landscapes. From his studio in Sigtuna across from Lake Mälaren that borders Stockholm, Mattias fills the pages of his journals with kind robots, gentle animals and elaborate architecture, often in pastels and always with a touch of humor and fantasy. His book, the Second in Line, was awarded the Most beautiful Swedish book of the year in 2014. Mattias has worked with prestigious publications such as the New York Times, Wired and The New Yorker, along with Disney and Nickelodeon.
