There’s a Canadian mama who’s changing the baby sleep industry to better newborn’s sleep patterns and prevent a myriad of common issues with her product! Silkzees, by Jovana Prica, is the first to introduce a 100 per cent mulberry silk and organic cotton bassinet sheet to cradle baby for the first six months of their precious lives. Designed after Jovana discovered bald spots and rashes on her wee one’s head, it’s an eco-friendly, luxury solution for all newborns. —Noa Nichol
Hi Jovana! When and why did you launch Silkzees?
As a mother myself, I have a deep appreciation and understanding of how difficult a new parent’s journey can be. After the birth of my daughter, I was deeply inspired to provide a solution for some of the most common issues related to a newborn’s sleep, specifically things I experienced with my daughter and know many other mothers globally also experience. After my daughter was born, I noticed that she started developing a bald patch at the back of her head, which also resulted in a rash. After researching further, I found it was due to the friction of plain cotton bedding and sleeping on her back. Even though I had purchased all of the latest high-end baby equipment for her, including the Snoo Bassinet, SnuggleMe Organic lounger and UppaBaby stroller, I couldn’t find luxurious quality bedding to put inside of these pieces. Personally, I always used silk pillowcases to aid in my own hair growth and prevent breakage, so naturally I wanted my little one to have the same! After a year of back-and-forth prototypes, Silkzees Fitted Bassinet Solution was born in June 2021!
What makes this baby bassinet sheet unique?
There are a lot of bassinets to choose from on the market from low to high end, however, when it comes to bedding the only options, until now, were different variants of cotton. While organic cotton is excellent for babies and adults alike, it doesn’t provide all the same solutions as mulberry silk. When creating this product, I wanted to ensure I included the most beneficial elements from both cotton and silk, thus half of each Silkzees bassinet fitted sheet is made from quilted organic cotton to ensure durability and comfort for the baby’s body. The area where the baby lays their head is made from 25 momme Grade 6A mulberry silk, making it the highest grade of silk bedding on the market for babies. This combined with unique design elements – fuses together both functionality with a luxury aesthetic. The quilted aesthetic was inspired by my love for the quilted design of the iconic Chanel classic bag, and because quilting provides durability and comfort with minimal padding, I knew this was important to incorporate into the overall product. As an extra personal touch, we offer a custom embroidery option to monogram initials for a bespoke look. We also wanted to create packaging that was deeply special for the purpose of gifting. It is beautifully wrapped and ready to be gifted. The box includes a laundry bag, quality assurance and care card.
Please walk us through all the benefits of Silkzees for babes!
The benefits of having your newborn sleep on the Silkzees Bassinet solution include: preventing balding, hair breakage, cradle cap and rashes by up to 40 per cent! In addition, silk is hypoallergenic and temperature regulating, so it will keep your baby cool in the summer and warm in the winter; plus, it is hydrating in the sense that it won’t strip your baby’s delicate skin of its naturally produced oils.
What, in your mind, makes Silkzees the perfect baby gift for a new/expecting parent?
Silkzees is for the eco-conscious mom, the bougie mama, the mother who wants the very best and most luxurious slumber for her little one. Our philosophy is “only the best for my babies and yours!” When creating this product, quality, safety, benefits and gifting likeability were the four pillars of the design. Receiving beautifully packaged bespoke luxury bedding for your little one, would delight any expecting parent. It’s best to use Silkzees from the newborn stage up to six months in order to prevent baldness and rashes from the start. The best part is that the fitted bassinet solution is compatible with all oval standard sized bassinets from Bugaboo, Snoo, UppaBaby, SnuggleMeOrganic, SilverCross, etc. So you can take the guess work out of wondering if the mama will have any use for it.
