Baby bloomers for a cause

Handmade African Baby BloomersI have already espoused my love for baby bloomers here on Cool Mom Picks. Their versatility really make them the perfect warm weather baby accessory. But with the adorable baby bloomers from CMP fave Raven & Lily, I just added another reason to my list – supporting an amazing group of women.

Unlike anything I’ve ever seen, these beautiful baby bloomers are handmade by female artisans in Africa from repurposed local fabrics. The money they make benefits a co-op which offers assistance and support for these women and their communities. I love them under a dress or tunic, or pair them alone with a t-shirt on a young toddler.

I’m partial to the elephant (top), but seeing as how these $14 bloomers are less than $10 each when you buy the whole set of three for $26, there’s really no reason to pick just one. -Kristen

Visit Raven & Lily for these baby bloomers, as well as a wide selection of gorgeous handcrafted jewelry and accessories, all supporting a fantastic cause.

    How cute are those? I am just trying to figure out if they’ll fit my baby girl now.

    The elephant is not showing up as available and there is currently no option to buy all three.

    Hi Kristen, indeed it would seem the elephant is sold out…which is why the set of 3 are not available. I’d imagine if you were still interested in 3 at the reduced price, you could email the shop owners and get say, 2 zebras? They’re quite nice over there!

    Thanks. I may just do that. It is a bummer on the elephant though, I think it was my favorite.

    Ummmm….I LOVE these!! Not only are the gorgeous, but for a great cause. One question: I’m thinking that they are unisex…no? When my little guy was young, I tried to find boy bloomers to no avail. These might be just the thing for #2.
