What is the difference between Kishu Baby and Indi By Kishu Baby?
Our Kishu Baby mainline is made in California from premium imported Japanese muslin and sold here on kishubaby.com, Amazon, and through various wholesale accounts. About 75% of our Kishu Baby products are actually handmade which allows us to sell on Etsy as well. Our Indi By Kishu Baby line extension is beautifully and ethically made in India and is exclusively available on Amazon. While you will find a mix of both conventional and organic muslin products here on kishbaby.com, our Indi By Kishu Baby line extension (sold on Amazon only) is made from Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Certified 100% organic cotton muslin. Both brands are luxuriously soft and of extreme high quality. Our Kishu Baby products are priced significantly higher due to the fact that they are made in the USA from premium imported Japanese muslin.
Why does this bib fit tight around my baby's neck?
Our kishu bib is one size fits most and depending on which style, has 3 to 4 KAM snap closures for a 2-way adjustable or 3-way adjustable neck size. For babies who are not very active yet (crawling/standing/walking), our bibs may fit snug because of all that extra cute baby fat. As your baby grows and becomes more active, his or her neck will actually become thinner and our bibs should fit beautifully! Muslin fabric will also sag/stretch over time. With the snap closed, simply pull on the bib with your finger to stretch it a bit before putting it around your baby's neck.
Can I machine wash them? Will they shrink?
Yes, our bibs are machine washable. Made from premium 100% cotton muslin imported from Japan. Not only is muslin fabric super soft, but it gets softer every time you wash it. Please keep in mind that 100% cotton muslin will shrink 8 to 10% on average. If your bib shrinks more than expected, please note that muslin will sag and stretch over time. With the snap closed, simply pull on the bib with your finger to stretch it a bit before putting it around your baby's neck.
Why does this bib look small on my baby?
Our bibs are intentionally sized smaller than most other bandana bibs on the market. If you are looking for an oversized bandana bib that fully covers your baby from neck to waist, this is not the bib for you. Our bibs are tastefully sized and look proportionate to your baby's body size when worn. We do not recommend using as a feeding bib at mealtime. Our kishu bibs are primarily a fashion accessory. As for function, it works best as a dribble bib for teething babies and as a nursing bib. You can also use as a wipe cloth and hand towel – LEARN HOW

Why is this bib so thin? It doesn't seem very absorbent.
Some of our muslin bibs are thinner than others, particularly our Reversible Solid Collection and our Organic Collection. While muslin fabric is certainly absorbent, it is also lightweight, breathable and quick to dry. With teething babies who are drooling excessively, our bib will get easily soaked. When this happens, you simply unsnap it and flip it to the reverse side. If you are looking for an extra thick and extra absorbent bib, our kishu bib is probably not going to satisfy your needs. If you are looking for a bandana bib that is luxuriously soft, adorably fashionable, tastefully sized, lightweight, breathable, durable and quick to dry, our kishu bibs are exactly what you've been searching for!
Why does my bib have tiny dark specks on it?
This is simply the nature of the fabric and an indication that no bleach or harsh chemicals were used in the production of your kishu bib.
