A great sister

By the time the baby bump starts showing, transformation is in full swing. Somehow everything starts changing then. Not just your body, but also your mind. Ideas, concerns and wishes. Priorities, fears and hopes. And, of course, hormones will change, too. (But that’s a whole different story anyway.) And then suddenly, there is this new person that will turn your world up side down. Feeling overwhelmed by all of these changes, it’s easy to forget to capture special moments and create memories. The Berlin label Gretas Schwester is here to help: their Babybuch (baby-book) is a charming hand-illustrated book printed on nothing other than finest Munken paper, made with love and ready to be filled with lots more. Later on, your kids will be pleased about all the memorabilia you held on to. But Gretas Schwester also sells lots of lovely things for babies to hold on to themselves. Illustrator Sarah not only works on paper, she also creates lovely items made of enamel and soft materials inspired by nature and children’s books. Noah is our favourite – and probably the smallest whale to ever swim the ocean. His tummy is 24 centimetres long, made of organic cotton and filled with a little rattle to cheer up small terrestrial mammals and get them used to everyday sounds. We’ll keep the lovely travel and wedding-day diaries in mind for later…
