Project Description

milimili logo in teal

 

 

We are MiliMili—a bold and colorful nursery goods company. We believe that nurseries don't need to be baby-pink or pastel-blue; that gender neutral need not mean colorless. We want to help you create a color-filled nursery that reflects the vibrant personality of your little one, and their fun, modern grown-ups.

 

milimili - colorful, modern, soft, safe - sleep sack wearing baby and mom

 

MiliMili specializes in making stylish and oh-so-soft    sleep sacks,        crib    sheets, and small coordinating luxuries for mamas and babies. Our products make the       perfect new-parent gift.  They are beautiful, surprising, and always useful.

Wearable Blankets (aka sleep sacks) keep your little ones      warm (and safe!) at night, without worry of blanket suffocation. They provide efdfomfort, signal bedtime when used in a nightly sleep routine, and keep older tots in their cribs as they start getting more mobile. The MiliMili wearable blanket is most definitely the chicest (and dare we say, softest!) sleep sack on the market. This high-quality blanket is made in Los Angeles with the utmost attention to detail.

Our silky-soft and   OKEO-TEX certified bamboo jersey fabricis breathable, gentle on sensitive baby skin, and naturally anti-microbial (i.e. you can wash it less, woo hoo!).   This ultra-soft fabric is showcased by our artfully-inspired modern, and colorful print      ( (- that you’d not so secretly want for adult-sized goods.

We also have    THE BEST ZIPPER—seriously. Our custom-designed, dual-molded zipper (i.e. opens from both the bottom and the top    !) is easy to zip-up at bedtime and is great for those lovely middle-of-the-night diaper changes.  Our zipper's high-quality construction won’t bust open from those surprisingly strong little kicks, and a tab snaps easily in place over the zipper's top to protect baby's chin from irritation.
Our blankets are currently made in two different weights:  a .5 TOG blanket perfect for preventing your little one from overheating in warmer temperatures like we have in Los Angeles  (71°F +), and a 1.0 TOG sack for temperatures 68-74°F.

What Else You Got? [white type on teal background]

 

In an effort to create as little waste as possible in the production process, we save all of our unused fabric pieces         (literally every last scrap) and turn them into adorable nursery goods       and luxuries for adults. Our "Reborn Collection" includes teethers and baby beanies for littles, eye masks, scrunchies, and a small collection of pajamas for women—all of which are handmade by local mamas in Los Angeles.

 

We also offer a small collection of coordinating  crib and bassinet sheets—made in our same ultra-soft bamboo jersey, so that your baby’s sleep space can be both safe and super stylish.

This is where things get exciting—our second collection, inspired by Mexico, is AMAZING and with your support we can bring it to life. The collection features three new prints including a custom-designed Otomi-style print by LA-based artist Jeanetta Gonzales  Plus -  we made some slight tweaks to our sleep sack design based on feedback from our customers to make them even more user-friendly.

These new prints will be available in sleep sacks (each print will be available in two different blanket weights!), crib sheets, and all our small goods including teethers, beanies, scrunchies and eye masks.
We will also be launching one KILLER new product:  a women’s sleep romper.   Your go-to quarantine attire, our romper easily goes from bed to WFH with the addition of a jacket or dangling jewelry. And because it’s made of our same buttery soft bamboo fabric,    you’re going to want to wear it ALL.THE.TIME.

 

 

"How Your Funding Helps" Header [white text on pink background with yellow doodles]

 

When 2020 started   we were already dreaming up this next collection. But then our fabric-house shut down, shortly followed by our LA-based factory that manufactures our sleep sacks...not to mention the whole wrench-in-the-plan that shelter in place created for our childcare situations...
BUT we’ve regrouped, are working with our local factories to safely get the work done, and with your suppor   t  , we can move our latest collection            into the next phase of productio— manufacturing all these amazing products with new prints, plus a restock of our kona banana print

The Campaign FAQs

got questions? featuring 4 babies dressed in milimili sleep sacks

 

DOES MY PURCHASE INCLUDE SHIPPING?

Yep! Free Shipping is included within the U.S.

Worldwide shipping is available at an additional cost.

Please email us at hello@shopmilimili.com to coordinate.

 

We do not cover any import taxes, duties, or customs fees.

 

 

HOW DO I SELECT WHICH PRINT OR SIZE I WANT?

We will email you within 48 hours of purchase to get some key details (like which swag item you want). 

Digital items will be sent within a week of purchase - after we receive your selection, swag items will be shipped at the end of the campaign, and pre-sale items (sleep sacks and rompers) will go out after they are produced (hopefully in January!).

 

 

WHAT ARE THE RISKS + CHALLENGES?

Well it’s 2020—so as much as we’d like to say that we have all our factories set and products perfected (that part we do!)—we also know that things can happen (like a pandemic, with wildfires, and killer bees…). That is to say, there is always a risk for delays with manufacturing or shipping our products.

Just know, we will do all we can on our end to do this right. We’ll be giving you frequent updates on the project and if there are ANY problems along the way, we’ll keep you in the loop.

Disclaimer: Unless the order has been improperly fulfilled or is damaged, our pre-sale and swag items are non-refundable.

 

 .


CAN A SLEEP SACK BE WORN WITHOUT CLOTHING UNDERNEATH? 
It is recommended that wearable blankets be worn over snugly fitting clothing, like a onesie or PJs.

.

.

HOW DO YOU WASH YOUR PRODUCTS?
Like you would most of your own nicer clothes—on gentle cycle, cold, then hang to dry. Warm iron if you're super wrinkle adverse. No bleach.

Full disclosure: you CAN throw your blankets/sheets in the dryer on low (We do!)—just make sure to run it by itself, and know this might cut down the lifetime of the product.

 

 

DO YOU HAVE HEAVIER WEIGHT / WARMER WEARABLE BLANKETS TOO? 
We offer two weights of blankets right now: super light weight and medium weight. 
Not to say that we might not dabble in those super heavy weight sleep sacks in the future, but for now, we are focusing on blankets that fit our needs here in LA.
