We absolutely adore Olli Ella Baby Changing Baskets here at Milk Tooth. Each one is so gorgeous and can add the perfect finishing touch of texture and natural beauty to a nursery. They are all handwoven under fair trade conditions, and we think this makes them extra special for your precious baby. They also all take the soft Olli Ella change basket liners: the beautiful new Luxe Organic Cotton Liners in Sage, Rose, and Mustard, and the original Cotton Insert in White.
One of the questions we're asked frequently is: Which Olli Ella Baby Change Basket is the best? What are their differences? How does the Nyla compare to the Reva? Is the Bayu different again? Here's a quick Milk Tooth guide comparing the three:
With a ribbon of white included throughout the seagrass weave, the Reva baby change basket strikes a beautiful balance between natural and modern.
Both strong and flexible, the Reva wins our vote in this aspect. The basket has some give but is excellent at keeping its shape. It's slightly heavier and more solid than its two sisters.
The Reva's handles are also very flexible; they're a strong rope-like texture.
The most natural-looking of the lot, the Nyla is a beautiful, pale, seagrass colour that gives it a certain delicacy, perfect for a baby basket.
The Nyla baby basket is the most flexible of the lot! So much in fact, that you could almost shape it to your will. However, this flexibility does mean it offers less strength than its sisters. Push on the sides of the basket and they will squish down.
The Nyla's handles are made from the same seagrass material and actually pivot into and out of the basket.
The newest kid on the block, the Bayu Change Basket has a more classic basket-weave look with vegan leather handles in a matching light tan colour.
The Bayu has fairly rigid, non-flexible sides, which means it's great at keeping its shape. On the downside, we think if you accidentally leant on one of the sides they would be at danger of cracking or breaking.
A point of difference for the Bayu, its handles are made from vegan leather, adding extra texture and luxury to the look.
