Elks and Angels is the brainchild of an Australian-born interior architect and designer, Janet Kennedy Ault, who left the laid-back country of Australia to live in the dazzling and frosty city of New York. It is here, Elks and Angels was born.
Australians have a long history with their use of sheepskin. For over a century the ‘aussies’ have known the benefits of this miracle fibre, ‘aussie moms’ have been using them as rugs for babies at sleep time, play time and tummy time.
Janet like most other Australian babies, had her very own sheepskin. Her mom loved it and had many uses for it; it became a portable bed, the most luxurious play mat and a stroller liner when on the go which provided extra comfort. Her sheepskin became a familiar environment providing the calming security a child needs.
Inspired by the meeting of an age old wisdom and the frosty winters in New York, with the necessary skills in design, Janet began designing a sheepskin cocoon for babies that meet the flexibility and lifestyle of a busy parent.
