This photo from @tea.lopez made us so happy. Partly because her little babe is so precious. Partly because we want to feel the sand in our toes as we walk along that beach.
And partly because it captures our hopes for this little company. When we created Chasing Windmills, we set out to design timeless pieces that would become more than the sum of their parts.
We hoped that our rompers would pass from sibling to younger sibling; that our swaddle and companion blankets would become the favorite blankie that traveled everywhere with a little one; and that our beanies could be worn in the nursery or outside on a cool spring evening. In short, we hoped that our pieces would be functional yet imaginatively adaptive.
And so, this photo made us happy indeed. We never envisioned our swaddle laid on a beach, and that’s precisely why we smiled when we saw it used this way.
Yes, we’d choose our swaddle hands-down over anything else out there to swaddle a little baby. It’s super soft with just the right amount of stretch- Moms and Dads tell us how perfectly snug and cozy their little ones stay in our swaddles.
But we didn’t design just a swaddle. It’s a beach blanket. It’s the roof of a play tent hoisted by a toddler builder. It's a play dress or cape. It’s the comforting blanket a little one grabs before that car ride up to the mountains. It’s anything a little one can dream up.
We’d love to see how you and your little one use our swaddles. It’s a big beautiful world out there, and we’re only limited by our imaginations.
