DockATot's Indigo Chambray in the Sun & Sea Expansion Collection
Our Sun & Sea summer expansion collection is now LIVE! And we just turned up the heat with a new colourway drop: classic, natural, tranquil - we give you the DockATot Indigo Chambray.
Inspired by the timeless appeal of your favourite pair of jeans, this new dock is already an instant hit. The faded, natural indigo-blue is an irresistible shade embodying the summertime hues of cloudless skies and ocean expanses.
The colour blue has long been a symbol of serenity, peace and tranquility, and this deep, opulent indigo dye further conveys a sense of integrity and sincerity. We wanted to play our part in bringing some of these qualities into homes across the globe after such a turbulent year.
Sun & Sea Collection
Our Sun & Sea collection is all about celebrating the wonder of nature’s enchanting colours. They perfectly capture bright, summertime shades - injecting fresh, joyful vibes into your home. Our photoshoot was taken against a scenic seaside escape in Athens, Greece and we still can’t get over those deep blues.
The DockATot Deluxe+ and Grande docks are the perfect accessories for both indoor and outdoor playtime and lounging. Whether you’re at home, abroad or somewhere in-between, our textured chambray prints won’t fail to lend a stylish touch to your activities.
We guarantee this summertime collection will brighten up every corner of your home, bringing a sense of joy and playfulness to your new parenting journey.
Chambray is a cotton-weave fabric made up of one dyed thread - here, a deep, luxurious indigo - and another usually white ‘filler’ thread. This fine, dense weave makes chambray the perfect summer fabric: durable, breathable and 100% cotton - the perfect choice for your baby.
The word ‘indigo’ comes from the Latin word for Indian, as it was originally imported from India to Europe. One of the seven colours of the rainbow - indigo has to be one of the richest colours on the visible spectrum between blue and purple.
And of course, we love it for its natural origins. The dye was first cultivated from the indigo plant (Indigofera tinctoria) or woad plant (Isatis tinctoria), one of the reasons only aristocracy and royalty could afford it.
Denim’s eternal appeal
A white tee with jeans. This twinning has been integral to the modern wardrobe for decades. Jennifer Aniston is living proof of this timeless style formula. And we love it.
Straight-cut, skinny, flared, mom style, boyfriend, high-waist - which is your favourite?
With the Indigo Chambray’s faded-denim hue, we wanted to evoke the timeless appeal of your go-to pair of jeans. Familiar, stylish, comfy, classic - the guiding inspiration behind our design.
Versatile and gender-inclusive
The faded, naturally-hued blue of the Indigo Chambray is wonderfully versatile and can complement a wide variety of interior styles. Try contrasting against a backdrop of crisp whites or a subtle neutral palette to make an impact.
We think it’s perfect for gender-neutral nurseries too. The indigo weave lends an artisanal quality to a traditional blue and brings a warmth and depth to natural textures like antique wood, rattan, hessian and jute.
Paired with on-trend yellow or a soft grey, you can introduce a more playful vibe. Take a look at Pantone’s colours of the year - ‘Ultimate Gray’ and ‘Illuminating’ for more inspiration.
Make it playful: accessorise your dock
Here at DockATot, we want to stimulate your baby’s imagination and encourage their physical development all the while keeping them safe and snug. That’s why we teamed up with New York artist, Matthew Langille, to create the Cheeky Chums toy set to attach onto the mobile toy arch.
The toy arch helps keep your little one entertained whilst safely lounging in their dock. It helps develop fine motor skills and strengthen their muscles as they reach for and grab the little black and white crinkly toys. Happy baby, happy parent.
And if you’re making magical memories outdoors this summer, why not snap up one of our Cabana Kits. Designed to protect your baby from the sun’s rays, it comes with a fully retractable SPF 50+ UV shade, mosquito net, and weatherproof base to keep your dock pristine.
