Muslin (mousseline) Is a plain weave fabric made out of cotton. It’s adopted the name muslin based on the place where it was first named, in a part of Iraq called Mosul. In some countries the mosul fabric is a very popular fabric for babies since it’s characteristics are baby friendly.
For Raegan Moya-Jones, an Australian that introduced muslin cloth in America, it all started in the year 1997 when she moved to New York together with her husband. In 2003 when she became pregnant with her first child, she knew what kind of cloth she wanted to have. It was about trying out muslin cloth for her baby, since growing up, this was a tradition that she got used to. It was only natural for her to follow her roots. But it wasn’t that easy.
Muslin is not in the U.S.: You see muslin cloth was not available in The United States, it was all swaddle and flannel that are too heavy. Instead of doing it the easy way, she did what she thought was right, thus the idea of Aden + Anais was conceived. It wasn’t in the year 2006 that the first muslin cloth was introduced in The United States and it went off from there. Fast forward today, Aden + Anais is already a household name that is now available in a total of 65 countries.
