The Rijks aims to produce the winning product and sell it in the gift shop.

Our entry is a breastfeeding blanket based on ‘Cimon and Pero’ by Peter Paul Rubens. 

This breastfeeding blanket is for those who want to make a statement around the stigma of breastfeeding in public. Narrow minded members of the general public have often decided to get offended by the natural act of a baby getting fed by its mother's breast? No worries, this monstrous act can be hidden with this new breastfeeding blanket portraying an old man sucking a woman’s breast instead. Way more appropriate!
