The Bird & Elephant

The Bird & Elephant brings modern fabrics to well-crafted baby sensory blocks, bandanna bibs, natural wood teethers, loveys and more! B&E uses premium fabrics and now carries all organic versions of the items listed.

Beth Hartman-Peters is the owner and operator of Bird & Elephant and she comess from a long line of quilters and seamstresses, painters and drawers, gardeners, welders, woodworkers and bakers.Her work in some form or fashion draws from all such things, drawing inspiration from the memories of childhood and the stories told of those old black & white photos. She is a mommy to two amazing, inspiring, beautiful babes (1 boy 1 girl), and the wife to a spirited artist/musician.She recently relocated back to Lynchburg, VA from Nashville, TN where she received a BFA in photography. Installation work is her passion, alternative processes/photography is next in line, but work of that kind is not as easy to execute these days. She’s a heavy thinker and constant doodler, but have come to love the colors and textures that fabrics offer. She began working with textiles while pregnant with her first as a way to create in a non-toxic medium. Her shop, style and technique is ever-evolving.

We loved hearing about Beth’s story and once we decided to take a peek at her shop, we where there for a while! Being a huge fan or color and cheer myself, I couldn’t help but to put most of her inventory on my wish list! 😉

After much thought, we selected one of her bandana bibs!

A favorite to the shop, this modern style bib has an Echino linen blend fabric in your choice of gray triangles against golden yellow backing, or hot pink triangles against a gray background. Both have a little black rhino making an appearance here or there. For absorbency, this super hip number is backed with a 100% organic cotton fleece in natual, and secures with a single pink snap. Bibdannas add style and functionality to any drooling babes wardrobe.

About the Rhino Fabric:
Linen cotton blend (45% cotton, 55% linen blend)…..very soft feel!

About the organic cotton fleece fabric:
100% GOTS-certified organic, ensuring that it is produced in an environmentally and socially sustainable manner. The fabric is not treated with fire-retardant.

So besides being super soft, I must add that the bib is not too bulky either! Lucca had a fine time moving his head and didn’t seem to mind it one bit. I knew I loved the print, and it seemed like everywhere we went people where ohhh-ing and ahhh-ing over the baby and his cute little accessory!
