FAVOR x Anchal Baby Collection

Buying for the kiddos in your life can be stressful. With an overwhelming number of options and an ever-growing list of considerations, choosing what’s best for baby gets complicated. We always want to consider health and safety first, but let’s be honest, aesthetic matters too, right? 

To offer the right mix of ethically sourced and on-trend baby items to our Favor customers, we partnered with Anchal to design this exclusive line of super-soft goods for babies (and their grown-ups, too!). We love everything about Anchal’s mission and have been working with them since Favor launched in 2019. Anchal is a nonprofit organization producing textiles with an emphasis on fair trade and ethical working conditions for women. These bibs, burp cloths, and quilts are made with luxuriously soft organic cotton with rounded corners, and they all feature a sunset arc design that’s hand-stitched in tiny rows using traditional kantha techniques. You’ll feel connected to the world with the hand-stitched signature of each artisan from Ajmer, India.

What are the top three considerations you took into account when designing this line of baby products?

Comfort, ease, and delight!

In your experience, what do most parents look for when selecting products to purchase for a child?

Products for baby not only need to be easy to use and super soft to the touch, but using calming colors and playful motifs are always a plus!

When it comes to materials and construction, what sets these products apart from other baby lines on the market?

The bibs, burps, and quilts are all hand quilted using multiple layers of luxurious organix cotton.  This technique of layering thin cotton is inspired by the classic Indian kantha quilt—it provides comfort but remains lightweight.  Additionally, the bibs & burps are lined with an absorbent terry liner, made for easy clean up.

“...parents these days are loving unique combinations and more natural colorways.”

We're enamored with the color choices for these products, which are a breath of fresh air compared to the typical pastels we always see on babies.  How did you narrow down the color palette of this line?

We love designing with unexpected subtle tones.  It's easy to revert to the classic pinks and blues, but parents these days are loving unique combinations and more natural colorways.

The stitching patterns reminded us on sunrises and sunsets.  What was the inspiration behind the aethetic choices of these products?

Though the little one might be waking you up before the sunrise, the time shared with your sweet baby early in the morning and as the sun goes down can be so special!  We also find that beautiful repeating scallop designs offer such a calming, relazing motif.
