The magical feel of a soft security blanket is both comforting and soothing to newborns and toddlers alike. We are sure our issie™, made of gentle, breathable muslin and lined with silky satin, will become one of your child’s most cherished simple pleasures. And like all aden + anais® products, the issie™ is playfully designed in our exclusive, modern prints to bring together comfort and style.
Each issie™ security blanket is made from aden + anais®’ signature fabric – natural cotton muslin – and lined with an ample strip of soft satin. Muslin is breathable, and the fabric’s light, open weave construction allows liberal airflow that helps prevent overheating. Measuring 16x16 inches, the issie™ is designed to be portable and the ideal size for cuddling. Each pack contains two identical issies™, so there is always one available for snuggling while the other is in the wash. Playfully designed in our exclusive, modern prints, the issie™ is available in several different patterns.

|Cotton muslin is one of the world’s oldest, most cherished woven fabric. It adorned the members if the Indus Valley Civilization 7,000 years ago. It was used by the Egyptians to both swaddle their babies and to wrap those who had passed away. It graced the robes of ancient Greeks and Romans. It was used for the elaborate petticoats of 17th century France and as garments worn by the underprivileged working classes of medieval Europe. The story of muslin is the story of civilization. |
Muslin has protected its wearers from the heat and the cold. It has swaddled countless babies from every land and draped the shoulders of the wise and the elderly from every corner of the earth. It is a fabric that binds us all together-- through out all time, all places, and all cultures.
It is the purest, simplest, most gentle, and, in our opinion, the most perfect fabric in the world.
So when it came time to decide what fabric we would use in our products and, especially, in our swaddles we turned to the traditional practices of motherhood -- practices that transcend all boundaries of time and culture -- and chose muslin. Durable and gentle. Soft and strong. Breathable and comfortable. Time-tested and pure. Today, aden + anais is the steward of muslin’s long legacy and ardent believers in its ability to bring mothers and babies closer together.
