Baby Spotlight – Plum & Sparrow

By September 26, 2016 One Comment

Happy Monday and welcome to another installment of newborn heaven!!  Leah and I are taking today to share yet another amazing baby brand that we have fallen in love with, well actually, we fell in love with this brand even before these boys came into this world!  Today, the spotlight is on Plum & Sparrow, a gorgeous and one of a kind moses basket line that also offers other pretty accessories.  Leah and I had seen Plum & Sparrow around and fell in love with the look of the baskets and now have fallen in love with the functionality as well!  The baskets are made so incredibly well and the variety of colors are really gorgeous, not to mention the sheet options and cute little pom poms that come attached!  We get to have our little men with us around our house easily and in style!  Another great side note?  All Plum & Sparrow products are sustainably made and they are a supporter of the Fair Trade Federation which means 10% of each purchase goes back to the African weavers and their families who make the baskets – providing them with school supplies, healthcare and the funding and building of the community weaving centers.  To good to be true?!  Check out these amazing baskets and the cute little men who adorn them!

“Our baskets are made by an amazing group of weavers in a village in Africa, the group consists of both men and women who have developed this skill and art form which has been passed down from generations. They are also now passing it down to their children in hopes of creating a lasting legacy that will benefit their children.”

“When I was pregnant with my 4th baby, someone gave me a Moses basket. I fell in love with it and I used it all the time. At the time, the baskets came in just the natural and espresso colors. I am a color person so I decided one day I was going to locate and purchase a new colorful and bright basket. I searched everywhere to see if I could find one but had no luck. It was then that I knew this idea had to come to fruition.”
