For more than twenty years, Blauen Ltd. has been one of the most
exclusive sources for premier quality linens for the nursery. From
luxuriously ruffled skirts, bumpers and pillows to exquisitely trimmed
blankets, coverlets and canopies, owner Margaret Scheffs offers an
extensive collection for the bassinet, cradle, crib, and heirloom.
In Switzerland, where Margaret was raised, she first encountered the
rich fabrics that became her passion. She carries on the legacy of
her grandfather, a master tailor, in recreating the old world quality and
craftsmanship she remembers from her childhood. The resulting
collections marry the sophistication and superb construction of adult
bedding with the color palette and sweet motifs of the nursery.
The beautiful Egyptian cotton damasks, for which Blauen is best
known, are designed by Margaret in-house and woven exclusively to
her specifications in Europe. Blauen's distinctive batiste embroideries
are produced and custom colored in Europe as well. Select fabrics --
from traditional textured piques, quilted cottons, and ginghams to rich
brocades and bridal satins -- along with opulent trimmings, delicate
laces, and glorious ribbons -- are brought in from all over the world.
Blauen's state-of-the-art factory, located in New York, houses all
materials and production to assure attention to every detail. Each item
is made to order and individually hand tailored.
You are invited to visit our boutiques or showrooms where you will
find Blauen linens on display. Our extensive Collection Book includes
samples of the fabrics, embroideries and accents, photographs and
design inspirations. A Blauen representive will be happy to provide
personal service and assist you with custom gift ideas or the creation
of your dream nursery. Please email us for the location nearest you.
