Aden & Anais
Born and raised in Australia, Raegan Moya-Jones grew up with her native land’s centuries-old practice of swaddling babies in cotton muslin blankets. For countless generations, Aussie parents have comforted and secured their children in this supremely soft, breathable fabric.
Raegan relocated to New York City in 1997 with her future husband. Even though she was far from home when she became pregnant in 2003 with her first child, Anais (pronounced UH-nay), Raegan was comforted knowing she could carry on the time-honored Australian tradition of swaddling her baby with a muslin blanket. But after scouring stores across the US for the muslin wraps used by parents everywhere in Australia, Raegan came up empty-handed. Much to her surprise, the only available options were made of fleece, flannel or heavy cotton—none of which she thought were right for swaddling. That’s when the idea for aden + anais was born.
Inventing by way of necessity, Raegan introduced the first muslin swaddle blanket to the United States in 2006. With their versatility, quality, and modern aesthetic, the aden + anais muslin swaddle blankets instantly resonated with American parents. Since then, aden + anais has brought the Australian legacy of cotton muslin to the forefront of lifestyle baby care around the globe, pioneering signature products that combine comfort and assurance with style and simplicity.
