"aden + anais is a wonderful addition to the little77 line, and a great fit for brand," says Betsy Schumacher, chief merchandising officer, 77kids by American Eagle. "We look forward to developing innovative, inspiring products that will complement the magical experience of caring for a baby."
aden + anais was founded in 2004 by Claudia Schwartz and Raegan Moya-Jones, Australian natives who relocated to the U.S. in 1998. After becoming mothers, they were concerned by the lack of large muslin cotton fabric baby wraps traditionally used "down under." They decided to make their own version of these safe and breathable swaddles by creating aden + anais. Response from nurses, pediatricians, obstetricians, celebrities, industry experts, lactation consultants and other mothers has been overwhelming. aden + anais are recipients of the Creative Child Magazine 2007 Seal of Excellence and several prestigious iParenting media awards. Raegan-Moya Jones is also the author of Swaddle Love, a book on the art of swaddling.
