My brother is fortunate to have a very close friend who has been wonderfully supportive of him for many years. My family was overjoyed when the news came that this friend and his wife were expecting a baby. Given how important he’s been in my brother’s life, I wanted to design something very special for his child. This blanket - inspired by textiles derived from the baby’s Italian heritage - is the result. The new parents loved the blanket, and I hope you will, too!
