Less is more. We at Rugs by Roo have always believed in this. In today's world, a significant amount of chemicals are poured into our fabrics to achieve certain textures or colours that are desirable. What we don't realize is that these chemicals can be very harmful to our health even after washing and can continue to live on our fabrics for the duration that we use these fabrics, whether its a piece of clothing, a bed linen or a rug in our home.
Brands like Blaynk are like a dream come true for us. Their standards go beyond what certifications require and really focus on making better fabrics by removing stuff rather than adding stuff.
This Blaynk Organic Baby Bundle is made from organic, unbleached and undyed cotton because the truth is, bleaching and dying simply aren't necessary. Breathable and silky soft, this natural cotton burp cloth is made without any dyes, bleach or processing chemicals, perfect for taking care of your baby's delicate skin.
It all starts with the farms. The cotton that goes into the making of this Blaynk Organic Baby Bundle comes from Chetna Organic, a nonprofit organization that works with cotton farmers in India. Members grow their crops without genetically modified seeds or pesticides, and they use significantly less water than conventional farmers. Chetna is certified by Fair Trade USA, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and Fairtrade International.
Founded in 1947, the weaving and finishing facility where this Blaynk Organic Baby Bundle is made abides by the most stringent environmental and social guidelines. They are certified by the GOTS as well as Oeko Tex 100. They provide advanced education programs and quality healthcare for their employees. And did we mention that this factory is 100% wind powered meaning there are no carbon emissions? The perks go on and on.
The versatile swaddle can also be used as a nursing cover, shoulder bib, stroller cover or changing table cover.

About Organic Cotton
As you're probably aware, cotton is a natural fibre that comes from the cotton plant and grows commonly all over the world. It is a renewable and eco-friendly material that is easy to clean and maintain. Cotton offers an unparalleled feeling of softness, comfort and warmth like no other fibres.
Things you might not know about cotton, however, is that conventional cotton farms uses heavy amounts of pesticides in the crop fields that not only poses a health risk for the farmers but also results in the cotton fibres being leached with toxins and chemicals that can impact your health.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides and toxic chemicals. It doesn't damage the soil, has less impact on the air, uses less water and less energy than conventional cotton. The result is a cotton that offers the best of both worlds - safe for the farmers and safe for the end consumer.
Wash before first use.
Machine wash with cold water on a gentle cycle. Do not use any bleach or fabric softeners.
We recommend air dry for best results. May also be dried on low heat with minimal additional shrinkage
About the Brand
Talk about innovation. Blaynk developed a proprietary method to producing fabrics using no chemicals and fewer steps. While most manufacturers go through a five step chemical process to arrive at their desired fabric, Blaynk's process is just one single step - rain water! Their water comes from a rain harvesting system that can hold over 1 million gallons. Rain water is used to spin, weave and finish the fabric, resulting in bed sheets that gets softer with each wash. And using physical principles like friction, temperature and pressure to replace the use of chemicals, Blaynk's production process is reduced from a conventional 11 step process to their proprietary four step process. This not only shortens production time but also results in huge energy savings, which is important when your factory is 100% wind powered.

Love that this chair is tested for chemicals and it's not toxic for kids, which is important to my family. Also love that the fabric unzips for easy cleaning, love that it can fold down into a little day bed. I would highly recommend this if you want something minimal design and easy to clean!
After looking through dozens of options, online for a rug in our sons room, we came across Rugs by Roo. We are so happy we found this company! They have lots of different options and patterns, and we also like the fact that the rug we chose was cotton and washable. It arrived quickly after ordering and is incredibly soft; perfect for an infant to lie and crawl on. We are really happy with the purchase and would highly recommend this company!
This totally warms our heart, Tim. Seeing the beautiful smile makes every ounce of our work worth it. It really means a lot to us.
Much love, Sandy
I really love the look and that this rug is safe for my baby ... but after 6 months I'm giving up and buying something else - it SHEDS SO MUCH!! Specifically, it sheds more on my black dog than he sheds on the rug, it fills the Dyson vacuum in <5 minutes EVERY time it has ever been vacuumed and shows no signs of slowing down, don't even think about walking in the room wearing black leggings, and my baby gets wool fluff in her mouth and eyes any time I set her down on the rug.
I understand that shedding is part of life with shag wool, but this is the most-high maintenance rug I have ever encountered. It might be nice for a guest room, but it just isn't suited for a space where you will ever sit/play on the floor.
Thank you so much for giving us feedback on this rug. I am extremely concerned that your baby is ingesting wool fibres from the rug. We typically do not recommend a wool rug for children under the age of 3 for this specific reason.
Have you tried giving the rug a wash in the washing machine? That should help alleviate most of the shedding.
I do understand that this rug was quite an investment for you and I am committed to you having a floor solution for your child. Is it okay for me to reach out to you today to see if we can offer you an alternative that would be better suited for your child?
Please do let me know.
Can’t express enough delight as we received the rings for baby’s nursery. The quality and customer service are both unmatched! Super soft and shaggy while nontoxic for baby - it’s all in the details and these rugs are perfect! And the fact the rugs can be machine washed is everything. Nursery is coming together!
