Jane Blakey founded Lou & Olly in July 2008, in Auckland, New Zealand. She named the company after her affectionate nicknames for her two small daughters, Brooke Lucy and Olivia (Lou & Olly).
Jane has designed every item in the Lou & Olly range with Brooke and Olivia in mind (and usually on hand too). She meticulously researches and tests all her designs and materials - and the girls' take their jobs as the official test subjects for the blankets very seriously! It's important to Jane that each item not only looks great, but is also as comfortable against your baby's skin as it can possibly be.
Brooke and Olivia love that the company is named after them and Jane is incredibly proud to be sharing both her designs and the purity and softness of New Zealand merino wool with mothers and babies all around the world.
