Nothing But the Best for Your Baby.
Sometimes, things just come together to create something amazing. That’s what happened when Tamre Sutphen, a toy industry executive of 16 years, had her baby. Tamre found out the hard way that all the baby blankets she was given, although soft and cute, were made out of polyester and other synthetic, chemical-treated fabrics. When her little son developed a rash, she tried her best to comfort him, wrapping him in the softest blanket she had to soothe his irritated skin. Yet ten minutes later, her baby boy was sweating a storm and his rash was much worse! Discovering the blanket to be made of polyester, that day she decided to develop a line of baby blankets that were 100% natural, safe, and soft. She believes that parents should be able to place their trust in the blanket wrapped around their children.
Since 2008, Tamre has made a success of her mission with her line of SHI SHU blankets for BABY and HOME. These hand-woven, all-natural blankets are made of cotton and bamboo yarn. Tamre chose bamboo after doing research in India, where for centuries high-quality, natural blankets have been made from it. Bamboo is very soft, strong, and breathable. It naturally regulates temperature, and is even antibacterial. Tamre quickly fell in love with bamboo, and knew she’d found the perfect material for her baby blankets.
SHI SHU BABY blankets come in two varieties: standard baby blankets and baby snugglers, both of which are trimmed with 100% bamboo sateen trim. Both styles come in five sweet colors to match any baby room. These blankets are made to last, and will be treasured as classic family heirlooms for generations.
After making such high-quality baby blankets, Tamre realized she’d like one for herself, and began making SHI SHU HOME throws as well, in three chic neutral tones to combine tradition and sophistication. These throws are made to fit mom or dad, while baby enjoys one sized just for him or her. Everyone in the family will want their own SHI SHU blanket!
