The story behind
My story begins with the birth of my twins - they were so small and fragile that they were cold even in the middle of summer. At one point, the NICU nurse suggested I have someone knit natural, coarse wool vests for them to wear on their bare skin, so my mom came to the rescue with two tiny handmade vests. They were such a lifesaver! After my mom knit those little vests, I had a thought: nature knows best when it comes to protecting and caring for your babies. If handmade clothing could be natural and comfortable, while also modern and beautiful, it would be perfect for my babies and for other babies around the world.
GeraBloga is rather a feeling than a clothes. It is something that comes from childhood memories, storytelling, traditions and nature. It’s not kind of things you will throw away after your child outgrows them. You will wash them by hands with a similar care as if it would be alive and you will leave it for the little bro or sis. Or even a grandchildren. This is about making lifetime memories and collect treasuries we can share with our loveones. Memories of all first laughs, steps, words...
I want to create necessary things, and I want them to be valuable. I believe in nonsense-free baby clothes that are simple yet magical: the kind of things you can pass from one child to the next, from one family to another.
This is me!
