Stormy Collection

So in all the excitement of introducing the new Ashkii Teepee inspired range I realised I had completely overlooked sharing with you the updated Stormy Collection.

We can now offer a bigger range of co ordinating items for the Stormy collection to cater for your nursery or your move into a big bed.  Range includes cot fitted sheets, bunting, cushion covers, single quilt cover, cot quilt and swaddles. i am so happy with the quality of all the fabrics and the finishes.  As with the Ashkii range..these are our own exclusive designs which are screen printed by hand and then made up by talented artisans in Indonesia.

Look at this adorable bundle below..Storm Organic swaddle pictured on the Black Raindrop fitted sheet.  Both the sheet and the swaddle are also available in soft grey..great for unisex.

Finally… New range sneak peek

 

brave moodboard ..new range by alphabet monkey.com.au

Good morning all and happy monday…

I’m very excited to present to you our next two mood board for our coming India style ranges…Ashkii and Brave.  There are many pieces that can either work together or work alone.

In fact , when I look over what we have designed and ordered I think wow..so many designs and options. No wonder it has taken so long to sort out!!  These ranges will be produced in extremely limited runs of 12 at a time.

So my inspiration for the Brave range has been to take the vibe of the American Indian trend and translate it into pieces that will look great in any space.     I’ve worked  in the arrow motif into an understated monochromatic look for those of you who love the minimalistic look or you can add it into the colour and astern of the Askii range below.

Ashkii (which means Boy in Navajo) is inspired by the colour and pattern.  And we are featuring a rich green and mint for those looking for something new.

We have collaborated with talented illustrator Pete Cromer ,  who sketched our super cool teepee design.  We love this sketchy free hand style and think it works very well in our new pieces.

Ashkii and Brave are both inspired by and made for little babes and boys who are free spirited and full of energy.

Who love to play make believe in the forest or in their makeshift teepee.

Who want to chase and roll and throw things and explore.

ABOUT THE PRODUCTS..

Our patchwork quilts will now come in the boori size as the standard size.  At 100x140cm we know you will get maximum use out of your quilt and I also think this is a great size to then use as a throw on the single bed.  We will have two styles of single bed quilt cover and matching pillowcase  and they will be reversible with cool prints on both sides (one in Storm range and one in the Ashkii/Brave range).

All our quilts will be larger than our current sizes and our fitted sheets are big enough to use on a boori cot or a standard cot so we hope we can keep more of you happy.

I am also excited about the patterned fitted sheets as I feel that it is great to be able to have the sheet be such a feature..especially when we don’t use the quilts for sleeping when they are so young (Check SIDS recommendations in your country)

I know many of you have boys that share rooms so the range will be able to be used on both cots and single beds..and you can mix in a pillowcase or a cushion here and there with what you may already have to create a coherent look in the room but that doesn’t have to all be identical.  And before you ask about king singles or doubles..no we can’t accommodate those sizes due the fabric width and printing restrictions.  So our primary focus remains on the nursery but we are allowing some options to assist you in transferring to the big bed..

I have learned over the past nearly four years of creating and growing Alphabet Monkey is that my mums and mums to be are very design savvy.  They love to invest in quality, cool design and they like to get a bit creative when putting their children’s rooms together.  I like to think that we can give you access to designer items that can be worked with in many different ways so that every little boys room is as unique as they are.  We encourage you to mix items we have with things you already own or go all out and get the full range and your little guy is set for years to come.

We will be doing preorders in June..stay tuned or keep up on Facebook.

Stormy Collection grows..

I know that I have shown you our Stormy design before in our cot quilt sizes but I recently completed a couple of quilt cover orders in both the Stormy cloud and raindrop fabric so I have photographed them to show how they can be styled with our other items.

Quilt covers are made from 100% organic cotton sateen top and printed with eco friendly dyes in the USA. We offer this product only as a custom order to give you the opportunity to match up cots with big beds or to continue your style through as bub gets bigger.

I wonder if you like the clouds or the raindrops quilt better??

And I am still making cot quilts in the raindrops and the patchwork as well and lots of cute cushions to go with them. You can check them out in store here.

Stormy Collection..

stormy crib quilt by alphabet monkey.com.austorm2

Think moody grey skies, lightning bolts and raindrops..the Stormy collection has been extended with a new patch quilt and a few new cushion covers in a heavy weight drill.

As I have mentioned before this ranged is designed by me for Alphabet Monkey and printed up in a small supply to create this nursery look. And as we know black is becoming more and more acceptable for nurseries so don’t be afraid to use it to create a bold statement.
I like the print so much I have used it for Campbells room. For a bigger boy you could mix the cushion motifs with other plain lined or something you find in bold geometrics to contrast. you know i don’t do single bed sizes but what some of you have been doing is getting a boor size quilt 105x140cm and using it as a feature throw as it covers almost half the bed. I can turn the prints to make it a horizontal quilt. And the good thing about that is it is a perfect size for cuddling up in the front of the tv or for trips or make believe lounge room picnics.

I have just listed most of these items in the etsy store with some ready to ship..

And don’t forget there is only 12 more days till we draw the $100 voucher so subscribe or tell your friend to subscribe soon.
