Early parenting involves a rite of passage: doing a lot of laundry. So why not embrace that fact? Brooklinen’s latest collection, a range of colorful kids’ bedding called Brooklittles, created by cofounders (and new parents) Rich and Vicki Fulop, was specifically designed with practicality in mind—and with six fresh patterns, that doesn’t have to mean sacrificing nursery style.
It starts with the material: All the products, from baby swaddles to crib sheet sets, are made in a percale weave. “After having our son, we realized that you’re going through 10 washes by week two!” says Vicki. The classic cotton fabric actually gets softer with each wash, so you don’t have to worry about anything wearing out.
As for the inspiration, the duo sifted through the print archive of the Design Library to pick out vintage patterns in vivid pastels. “The colors play well with each other, so you can use them all together to create an energetic vibe or just use one or two for something tranquil,” explains Vicki. “We see this as a necessary function for baby collections, because you’re changing out sheets and swaddles so much.” Who says grown-ups are the only ones who get to enjoy a bedding refresh?
The collection starts at $14 and is officially available to shop now—whether you’re looking for one single piece or want to mix and match, here are our favorites:
