Eco-Décor Delights: Yumi & Laurie Organic Blanquettes

| 7/29/2009 4:21:26 PM

A hearty hello to you! Welcome to the brand new eco-home décor blog. My name is Victoria Klein—I’m one of the many writers who will be introducing you to the numerous facets of staying sustainable in your abode. 

Once a week, in my Eco-Décor Delights column, I’ll be acquainting you with some of the genuinely planet-conscious brands that can make your house (or condo or apartment) truly feel like home. 

It may seem a bit odd to do a post about cozy blankets during the dog days of summer, but these beauties are a year-round luxury. Yumi & Laurie was started by mother and entrepreneur Laurie Sukuzi, who used her travels as inspiration (which is very apparent in each unique design collection).

All of Yumi & Laurie’s “blanquettes” (as they call them) are made from 50 percent organic cotton and 50 percent bamboo fibers. Currently available in five different collections, each collection features one design in four to five different color options, making it super simple to pick a favorite! Yumi & Laurie also recently released a baby blanquette collection in subtle pastels and a few strong primary colors.
