Winner Update: Noelle at Winging it in the Windy City is the winner of the beautiful Tomo&Edie organic baby kimono. Congrats Noelle! Don’t forget to consider Tomo&Edie the next time you are shopping for a unique baby present. 10 percent of their sales are donated to Unicef.
In celebration of all things baby this week, I posted a giveaway at Blissfully Domestic for this beautiful kusakizome kimono from Tomo&Edie. Madder root has been used for centuries to achieve deep reds and oranges. The rich colors symbolize the rising sun and new beginnings and are a unique alternative to blue or pink.
Each kimono is lovingly hand dyed using a traditional Japanese technique on certified organic cotton–a work of art for that special baby in your life.
Tomo&Edie was founded by two friends, and mothers, who share a passion for other cultures, educating children, doing their share to preserve the environment, and promoting a peaceful existence. The business name was inspired by their young children. I happen to know one of these wonderful mamas (she teaches at the fabulous 12South Yoga studio here in Nashville) as she is a good friend of my big brother. The mamas also blog at Southern Sushi. Is that a great blog name or what?
Staying true to the principles upon which their business was founded, 10% of all Tomo&Edie profits are donated to Unicef. Tomo&Edie also features a unique line of beautiful hair accessories hand-crafted from vintage Japanese silk kimonos.
Check out the details of this great giveaway over at Blissfully Domestic. The contest closes Monday at midnight.
p.s. Does anyone know how to get a Tomo&Edie kimono to Angelina Jolie? Hey, it could happen.
