My sister asked me for some pictures of the sari blanket that I'm basing our baby bedding around. So, I thought I'd just post about it on the blog and give proper credit to Sari Bari who made the blanket and are in the business of freedom. Here's a link to their amazing and beautiful website.

The basic idea around the company is to give women caught in the sex trade in Kolkata an alterate way of making a living that gives them dignity and freedom.
So, this baby blanket has basically been the only thing we've had to buy for our baby so far. And we didn't even have to buy it! I just wanted to and I loved the idea of wrapping our baby in something that gave to others.
On the other hand, the crib bumper, crib skirt, basinet, and crib sheets we've chosen are all major baby brands. But, if we don't get them, it's no big deal. However, they are all the same sage color, except I went with some pink sheets because...she's a girl! Also, my mom is cross-stitching a baby quilt with a pink chenile backing...so the girl will have some pink.
I'm so thankful that while I may not have a home of our own to bring our baby girl to when she is born, I can at least create a sactuary of a bed where I hope she knows rest and comfort and love.
