story time

for your little ones nest

Inspired by the most favourite of all British birds, the Robin and her beautiful and unique blue eggs. The nest is a symbol of warmth, comfort, security and tradition and so our textile baby products embody these values for your baby’s nest.

You’ll find our products timeless yet modern, playful but stylish, made from only the finest quality organic textiles.


Hello I’m Ila, founder and owner of Little Blue Nest. As a new mum, I was uninspired by the abundance of primary coloured, oh so typical baby textile patterns out there. I set out to create an elegant, timeless British textile brand; combining sophisticated colour palettes, natural textures and delicate hand drawn patterns all with a child-like wonder - Little Blue Nest hatched in November 2016.

unique illustrated prints you'll love

We believe what you buy for your baby should be special and cherished in those precious early years. Not mass manufactured or mass marketed.

And so, we make beautifully unique hand illustrated patterns you won't find in the typical high street baby shop. Passion, care and genuine love has been put into every ounce of a collection - From deliciously refined colour palettes to the purposeful illustrated or painted print details, all inspired by typically British themes.   

soft. snuggle. safe

It should come as no surprise that standards for product safety are not just met, but in most cases exceeded, sourcing only the finest, purest organic threads. Manufactured by our trusted overseas partners who are certified according to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, our products are then tested in Great Britain to certify quality. They’re also finished and packaged by us in our little workshop here in Richmond. You can rest assured that the products you'll receive are the highest of quality and safe. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
