Just when you think you’ve seen it all in the world of children’s textiles, comes this spectacular collection from Israel.
This is one of those posts that’s difficult to write. Not because I have writer’s block, but quite the contrary – I just don’t know where to begin telling you about these brilliant pieces. Other than to say, if you’re in the market for children’s pillows and blankets, do yourself a rather huge favour and read on.
I’ll begin by telling you that this collection is beyond gorgeous. The pillows and blankets are made from ecological combed Egyptian cotton (translation – they’re insanely soft and luscious). And they are adorned with the most gorgeous designs, created by two very clever sisters, Lior and Paz Brouk. The Brouk Sisters’ fledgling brand is called 100% Brouk, and each piece is designed and manufactured in Israel – their home country.
The pillows are my absolute pick of the bunch. They’re unique and fun, and there’s no doubt they’d make a fantastic comforter for an older toddler who has hit the pillow stage. They come in two characters, Phillippe the cat, and my favourite, Oliver the long-nosed hedgehog. They’re a generous size (37cm by 37cm), and cost US$29 each.
Both of my sons are blankey boys – and there’s nothing sweeter than seeing them snuggle with their lifelong blanket pals as they drift off to sleep. The 100% Brouk Blankey Blankets are just beautiful – sure to become loved comforters long after they’ve ceased to cover the child for warmth. They measure 70cm by 70cm and cost US$29.
