Sture & Folke: So In Love!
It's a beautiful moment in my world today because I received a gift that absolutely blew my mind a few seconds ago and made me, for once, speechless. As I opened the package, I gasped upon seeing the most gorgeous baby/toddler blanket ever handmade by Karin Stenmarck, the founder of Sture & Folke, a Swedish designer living in Switzerland. She presented this to me & my growing family and I cannot wait for my son to enjoy this blanket when he arrives in January! I want to watch him play with the tabs and linger on the lush velvet and linen top. I also adore the reverse side of the blanket since it's a Liberty print and everyone knows about my long running obsession with their fabrics... Want to see my new blanket?
To say this made me happy today is an extreme understatement. I am leaping for joy and while I'm gushing about things less and less the older I get (and the more I see), this is definitely gush-worthy. It's so well made and special - the materials are of such high quality - so if you are having a baby or know someone who is (they also stock toddler size) then you simply must consider this blanket. Sture & Folke has many to choose from in their small online shop so be sure to check them out. Here are others in their collection for girls and boys. If you want the exact blanket that I have, it's called the Crowberry comforter and is available here.
I really appreciate the combination of soft, natural materials on the front with the tiny florals on the cotton reverse. Such a stunning combination. I don't know about my baby-to-be but his momma here is already in dreamland...
Thank you Karin for this beautiful gift.
