Review & giveaway #26 – Fabric 41

How often does an A & E Doctor decide to diversify and start making and selling bibs? Not very, that’s for sure. Which is why Fabric 41 slightly intrigued me. Amy (the Doc) and Katy (her sister) have started up a little company dedicated to making dribble bibs – you know, the ones that look super cool, like neckerchiefs. The kind sported by very cool kids.

So Amy and Katy sent me some bibs to review and I have to admit to being a little skeptical at first, after all these dribble bibs, whilst perfect for older teething toddlers are often, frankly a bit rubbish for babies. They don’t tie properly and hence milk sits in neck creases which any parent knows can provide a pretty rank aroma after just a few hours. The thing is these bibs are not like that – they’re super, super soft so they wedge into neck creases really well, plus they’re easy to tie, using a popper rather than my pet hate, velcro. (Which seems to collect all manner of debris in the washing machine. Ewww.) And lastly, but most importantly, the designs are delightful. I haven’t seen the fabric designs before. My little boy Lawrence has been sporting the apple and snail designs and looks mighty dapper in them.

Things I liked: Priced honestly – £6 each or buy 3 or more for a fiver each. The softness. The popper fastening. Made in England – supporting local businesses. The fabric designs are lovely – of which there are LOADS. The perfect baby present for any new parent. Oh and the website is gorgeous, very premium.

Things I didn’t like: Amy and Katy, you need to include more about you both on your website (in my opinion). I’d love to know more about your styling and textile credentials. I’d love to know more about the A & E background and how that led you into bib land. I am intrigued. People buy people after all. I think you should up your story. I also think you should apply for Dragon’s Den. Look what it did for that Just for Tiny People business. I would also like to know why you’re called Fabric 41. I could be being sleep deprived and thick on this point though.
