Product Quality

At Malabar Baby, we take great pride in our diverse range of baby and lifestyle products designed with the whole family in mind. Our dedicated focus is on the artistry of hand block-printing and responsible production in small, carefully crafted batches. We firmly believe that our pieces are not one-size-fits-all, as we value the use of different fabrics, customization, and the time invested in creating each item. If a particular print is currently unavailable, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We are committed to going the extra mile to accommodate your needs and strive to create a unique piece just for you!

  • GOTS Organic Cotton: All sleep sack and knit PJ sets are GOTS certified
  • Pesticide Free Natural Indian Cotton: Artisan made products (Cotton Quilts, Dohars, Dining Collection, Dresses and Shirts) are hand block-printed on pesticide free natural Indian cotton voile 
  • Organic Muslin + Chemical Free Dyes: Our Organic cotton muslin range is commonly known for its breathability, extra open weave and chemical free dyes.  While these products are not GOTS certified they are indeed created in small batches and derived from water coloring hand sketches. 
  • All products at Malabar Baby are vigorously tested by International Testing Bureaus, Intertek and/or SGS.  If you'd like to learn more about our sustainability efforts please visit here for more information.

Product Care

Most of our products are machine washable on a gentle cycle and can be tumble dried on low. We recommend you hang dry all of our quilts AND playmats since they have cotton batting and should be dried naturally. Please refer to wash care tags on your products for specific care instructions and when in doubt, dry clean.

All of our muslin and bamboo products are pre-washed and will not shrink much with the use of the dryer. As for all our handcrafted, made in India products, slight shrinkage is natural by 5% if high heat is used on the product. We strongly advise that our made in India products are hung dry and when necessary put in the dryer on a basic air cycle setting (with little to no heat).

We recommend avoiding the use of powerful detergents or bleaching agents to retain the original color and print quality of our products.
