What We Are Buying Today: Arty baby puff quilts

TamTam is a Saudi brand for handmade baby cozy quilts. It was established in April 2014 by Saudi cousins and art quilters Mariam and Sara Al-Hamrani who learned the craft through classes in the US and from family members.

Quilt making is a huge industry that has its roots in America, but the cousins have transported the craft to Saudi Arabia with their arty quilts specially designed for babies and young children.

TamTam’s puff quilts can be used as a soft and comfortable play mat on wood, marble, or tile flooring.

Babies love vibrant colors and extra soft textures and the brand offers a range of colorful and embroidered puff quilts, blankets, burpees, gabby blankets and play mats that are soft and perfect for cuddles.

Each gabby is handwoven and dyed in Ethiopia and has four layers of 100 percent organic cotton, making them breathable and ideal for any season.

The puff quilts are made from a vast selection of high-quality fabrics and Polyfill and are good for the motor development of babies who use them to pull themselves forward, which in turn helps them learn to rotate their bodies and crawl.

And the quilts also provide an excellent backdrop when taking photos of babies.

TamTam quilts are great gifts for expectant moms or at baby shower parties and they can be customized to meet individual preferences.

Items are available on Instagram @tamtamdesigns.
