Once there was a boy. He was just new in this world. He was so small that he couldn’t yet understand the difference between day and night. He slept a bit and then he was awake again, then he slept a bit more and in less then an hour he was awake again. This continued from the morning till the night till the morning till the night and so on and so on. His parents loved him more then anything, so they would always wake up when their boy
The Sleepness Nights Robe
opened his eyes again. Even if they were so tired that they forgot where they were, what time it was and sometimes even who they were. But as the nights were getting colder it became harder and harder to get out of bed to go to their little boy. That is why they made a special sleepless night robe. A Japanese one, because they would go there one day, and nights are for dreaming.
Suddenly a baby starts reaching out to everything close enough to his newly discovered hands. His parents are quickly removing everything that might break or cause damage in any other way; precious teacups, plates, pencils and pens, buttons, loose change. A safe circle of unbreakable and harmless objects is forming around the baby's little body. Then he starts crawling and all possible dangerous objects move upwards, on tables, in
cupboards, in little boxes. When the baby suddenly starts walking, everything is moved even higher. And only a few months later he starts climbing on chairs to reach everything he is not supposed to reach.
The wooden tray is made of plywood with hardwood details at the corner. The pencil box is made of a tropical hardwood and the small box is made of oak with dark hardwood details on the lit.
Some of our quilts are unique in their kind. For instance the blue block quilt, inspired by an old sweater Anna’s brother used to wear almost thirty years ago. Once her brother grew too big for his sweater, his favourite bear also wore it for quite some years. And when our son was born the sweater suddenly popped up again. Another example is a quilt made out of old
brown and black pants and striped blouses. Re-using material or building on a memory, gives us the chance to find unexpected shapes and colors.
Both quilts consist of three layers – the top fabric, the batting and the backing fabric - quilted together in an angular pattern.
