This is the story of
love, a grandma, a mom, her babies and their favorite blankets.
Taryn's Story: On a trip to Cape Town to visit family I picked up some beautiful South African
made blankets for my newborn son and instantly fell in love with the texture,
quality and classic look of the cellular weave blanket. I had not seen anything
like it in the US. They were woven like an adult blanket but perfectly sized and
weighted for babies.
So what was so special about these blankets? For me it was the luxurious cotton
weave that has a traditional classic look of a hand knitted blanket. Also the
weave was loose enough to allow air to flow so baby does not overheat. At the
same time the natural cotton fibers provide warmth without causing static. It
was so easy to care for and machine wash and tumble dry was recommended and the
blankets kept their shape perfectly. And most importantly my sons really loved
them. Over the next five years we collected many of these with each visitor
bringing a few for the boys.
It was time to spread the word and share this little secret.
My mother Roslyn and I established Romy & Rosie in 2010 with the
mission to provide natural high quality cotton blankets. The name Romy & Rosie is the connection
between a mother and her daughter. Myself, Taryn Romy and my mother Roslyn. I am in New Jersey and my mom, Roslyn in Cape Town. Our symbol, The African elephant baby is
always close by its nurturing mom, who provides guidance and selfless devotion.
Romy & Rosie, South African manufactured blankets are now being sold in
Soon to be your baby's favorite.
