Announcement   “IT’S HARD TO FIND GREAT THINGS FOR BOYS”

Alphabet Monkey is a modern baby homewares brand inspired by a love of textiles, quilt making and a desire to create.

The brand is known for its ability to infuse the nostalgia of quilt making into contemporary nurseries with a focus on stylish nurseries for boys.

The story began with a girl, Nicole who grew up watching and learning from her creative mother Denise. The joy she experienced from designing and making beautiful things with her own hands still inspires the brand today.

The label began when, after the birth of her son, Nicole noticed that it was hard to find great things for boys. So Nicole - an interior stylist, enlisted Denise - an award winning art quilter and seamstress, to help create the first Alphabet Monkey quilts. Denise was thrilled to finally pass on the skills first taught to her by her own mother and grandmother.

From there the brand grew, and today you can find Alphabet Monkey quilts in stylish nurseries on every continent.

Coming full circle the brand will soon launch a range of patterns and quilt kits based on their much-loved patchwork designs and exclusive fabrics. Now you can experience the joy of creating too.


We have had products featured in Little One baby magazine and Cosmo Pregnancy magazine in Australia.
We have also been featured on Apartment Therapy website, Babyology website and Decor8 blog ..check it all out on Facebook or blog.

About

Bedding for modern nurseries

Alphabet Monkey is a premium baby bedlinen brand specialising in exclusive limited edition baby quilts.

It all started with an alphabet cushion..with a little hand stitched 'c' for my own little monkey.

To be honest it was a little dodgy.. but I made a few more (much improved versions) and decided to set up shop on this new Etsy website I'd read about online ( I don't think anyone had even heard of it in Australia back in 2010 ). It all grew from there.....

The hand stitched felt motif was to become our signature as I moved onto creating quilts..following in the footsteps of my mum, an award winning art quilter. After she recovered from the shock that I finally wanted to learn to sew, she taught me all I needed to know.

Creating on a little table in my lounge room at night we put all our love and attention into these little quilts ensuring we were creating quilts of the highest standards and finishes. Knowing they were destined for beautiful little nurseries all over the world gave me an awesome feeling. As did the amazing feedback we received. Originally catering only for boys, we filled a niche in the market that was being overlooked at the time. As many others have joined the marketplace we've expanded our offering to include girls, boys and gender neutral designs.

Alphabet Monkey continues to help our clients create a special place to bond and share time with their little one. We aim to tap into the nostalgia of quiltmaking and reinterpret it for contemporary nurseries... creating modern keepsakes.

We are now supporting small cottage industry in Indonesia to produce our products. We are proud to bring to you superior quality fabrics and products and I travel personally each year to visit and work with each maker that we have collaborated with to ensure this. In fact you can even stay at our house. In 2016 we have made a conscious decision to stay tiny and offer more choice of design and colours for our popular patchwork ranges. We will continue to produce very tiny limited runs of 12-20 at a time of any design which will allow us to change our designs more regularly and respond to what you are asking for.
