Au Baby

Au BabyAlexandra Ulmer seeks an investment for Au Baby (pronounced OH Baby), her ethically and sustainably manufactured baby blankets, in Shark Tank episode 1513. “Au” is French for “for the.” Ulmer spent the better part of 20 years as a knitwear designer at Nike. It was there she learned that most baby blankets are made with synthetic fleece or cotton ladened with chemicals. Part of the company mission is “to clean up the toxic textile industry” and she’s doing it one baby blanket at a time.

Founded in 2019, Au Baby uses all natural Merino or Cashmere wool. It’s soft, sustainable and stain resistant. Stains wipe off with a damp cloth. The wool is dyed in Italy using sustainable ingredients like plants, barks, flowers, leaves, and even insects. Blankets are produced in a small, woman owned facility in Los Angeles.

Sustainability doesn’t come cheap. The blankets cost $160 each, but they’re literally heirloom quality. They come in a variety of styles and colors. For $10 per letter, you can add a monogram. Ulmer is likely in the Tank to gets a Shark’s help upgrading her machinery to produce apparel and adult-sized blankets.
