Today's Crib Bedding Trends

Crib bedding sets need to be soft, comfortable, stain resistant and above all safe so that parents won't have to worry every time they lay their infants down at night. There are so many different designs, styles and flairs that sets have, from fish and safari animals to modern contemporary designs and geometric shapes that you will have a good time trying to choose the one crib bedding set that will suit your child well.
Most of the sets that are out on the market today are 4 piece sets that include a comforter, a fitted sheet, the bumpers and a dust ruffle. These 4 piece crib bedding sets are available in many popular infant and toddler colors, themes and motifs. There are also some sets that include more than four pieces- some might include everything from a changing table cover or a small table lamp to diaper stackers, window treatments and mobiles. Most people prefer to follow not only the same theme for their nursery but they will want to stay with the same sets of crib bedding items in the exact design from the same manufacturer.
One of the current fashion trends today is baby clothing and supplies that are organic. Cotton is the natural fiber that is most often used for organic products, and those that are certified organic are the products that were made without harmful chemicals or toxins in them. There can be no harmful synthetic chemicals used during the planting, growing, harvesting, manufacturing or processing of the fibers that are used. This natural way of processing clothing is better not only for the farmers who grow those crops, but also is healthier and safer for the people who manufacture the clothing, in addition to the children who wear them.
It seems these days that modern crib bedding is either bold in color or neutral in color, one or the other. Earth tones that are nice, light and easy on the eyes are common, but so are the bright, vivid, bold solid colors like deep red and sea blue. Although small patterns had been popular for decades in the past, the modern look today for crib bedding is large, simple geometric shapes or stripes or large prints. The tiny, flowery prints are out for the time being as far as current trends are concerned. If you are undecided about what is trendy for the year in crib bedding styles, you only need to go as far as the Internet for thousands of pictures of some of the current best sellers.

New Modern Pillows and Throws from Bholu at Bobby Berk Home

Bholu is the work of Australian designer Jodie Fried.
The Bholu philosophy is about creating beautiful products that we love and live with, while benefiting communities we work with along the way.
Bholu products are brought to life by traditional artisans from rural and urban communities in India. Each piece is individually hand embroidered or handwoven using ancient techniques, giving each product its own unique and original personality. By using their traditional skills, the artisans gain an income, hence independence and opportunity as well as keeping a traditional craft alive.

With designs that are bold and free, it is Bholu’s childlike simplicity that gave the label its intriguing name – a Katchchhi word, describing a term of endearment and also the naivety and free expression of a small child.
Part proceeds from the collection go back to the Bholu Anganwadi Project which has now built a total of 8 pre schools with Architects Without Frontiers Australia, in underprivileged communities and have several more under construction, which provides over 280 poor children with love, education and a nutritious meal.
In 2008, Bholu won the Australian Telstra Business Award for Social Responsibility for demonstrated leadership and contribution by a business to the environment, people, education or the community. Most recently Bholu was selected as TIME Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential Green Designs of 2009. Bholu's pillows have also been featured on ABC's Modern Family.

Bholu is proudly a Fair Trade and Climate Neutral Company and operates with social and environmental responsibility.
