A Letter from Anjali: Introducing the Marigold Swaddle

A Letter from Anjali: Introducing the Marigold Swaddle

Hi everyone, 

It’s safe to say that the world is going through a strange time right now, and we’re so touched by the current situation. We’re all in this together, experiencing the magnitude of the circumstances. I hope all of our blog readers and our customers are keeping safe and following the social distancing rules wherever you are around the world. We love hearing your updates and have been so moved by some of your birthing stories the past few weeks.

I’ve been in India for just about two months, spending time with my family and little one in Malabar Hill. India has been on a full lockdown for more than 50 days. This time has given me the opportunity to reflect on the importance of family.  We’ve slowed down, learning some patience and gratitude along the way… 

Malabar Baby: painting, printing and final product of our Marigold Swaddle

While huddled up at home, Malabar Baby has launched a new print for our swaddles: Marigolds. The flowers remind me of my days growing up in India, and the irony is I’m back here, in my parents home in the middle of a lockdown. It’s reminded me how things come full circle and how important friends and family are. Malabar Baby is also proud to announce that during the months of May, June and July 2020, upon purchase of a Marigold Swaddle, one will be donated to a baby in need as part of our One for One charity initiative.

If you know a small non-governmental organization (NGO) or special cause that could use our help, kindly send us an email at snuggle@malabarbaby.com. I’m amazed at the kindness I’ve witnessed during these difficult times, and I’m passionate about being part of the cycle. 

Finally, I’d like to end on a poignant note with a quote from author Jumpa Lahiri: “Rather than interpret this malady, resist it. Stay home, connect through conversations. Let words become pathways to new spaces. Let them prevail over our isolation. Let them be the air that we breathe.”

Sending you all love and light,
