Misha*Puff – ljubav na prvi pogled

Click here for English version

Zima je vec odavno stigla ovde gde smo mi, a to zahteva još poneki dodatni sloj, po mogućnosti vuneni. Oduvek sam bila zaljubljena u stvarčice od vune , u nešto sto je neko napravio svojim dvema rukama da te greje i čuva od hladnoće. Nemam ništa protiv industrijski spravljenih stvari ali su one nekako previše savršene, dok ručno naštrikani komad ima neki poseban karakter ( i izgleda preslatko na bebama). Te vunene stvarčice često nisu savršene, potkrade se pokoji klot u moru frketa, ali kada sam prvi put (pre otprilike dve godine) videla Misha and Puff stvarčice za decu, otopila sam se  ( istovremeno pomislila ‚‚C! zašto ovo nije moj biznis” ) i poželela celu kolekciju – od kapa i šaleva, preko šortseva i kombinezona do prsluka i džempera.

Misha and Puff je  2011. godine pokrenula Anna Wallack nakon što je njena beba provela svoju prvu zimu na krajnjem severu Amerike ušuškana u vunene stvari koje je Ana naštrikala. Svaki Misha and Puff komad se ručno štrika u Peruu (Lima) – grupa žena je organizovana tako da može da štrika od kuće ili u okviru centra (gde su obezbedjene hrana i jaslice za decu). Na svakom komadu, na etiketi se nalazi ime žene koja ga je napravila, što dodaje toploti celog koncepta.

Za svoje komade (koji su trenutno dostupni u veličinama od 0 do 4 godine) koriste samo prirodna vlakna – uglavnom merino vunu i ređe vunu alpake a pošto ih boje ručno, dobijaju divne nijanse plavičaste, roze, sivkaste, krem. Lepo, toplo i funkcionalno u jednom!

Od pre nekoliko meseci imaju u ponudi i šeme za one koji nisu toliko vešti da odokativnom metodom skinu mustru a žele da uzmu igle u svoje ruke. To bio mogao biti divan poklon za bebu u porodici, zar ne? 😉

Winter is in full swing around here, and that calls for more layers, preferably woolly ones. I have always been in love with woolly stuff, especially hand knitted ones – there is just something special in the thought that somebody, with their two hands and pair of needles made something to keep you warm and cozy. Nothing against industrial machine knitting but, in my opinion, pieces made this way  could look too perfect sometimes, while hand knitted pieces show some sort of a particular character (and look too cute on babies). Although they may not always be perfect (in a perfect kind of way), when I first came across Misha and Puff web shop – more than two years ago – my hearth almost skipped a beat. I loved (and still do) literally everything – from bonnets and scarves, bloomers and one pieces to vests and popcorn sweaters – everything looks so tasteful and timeless.
Misha and Puff was founded in 2011 by Anna Wallack   after her baby spent his first New England winter all wrapped up in knits Anna made. Each Misha and Puff piece is hand knit in Lima by group of talented knitting ladies who knit from their home or knitting center, where meals and day care for children are provided. You can easily find out who your piece was made by since hang tag contains a name of a knitting lady who lovingly made it.
They use only best natural fibers – mostly merino wool and a bit less baby alpaca (which is naturally antibacterial therefore kind to babies’ skin). Fibers are hand dyed resulting in truly special shades of grey, blue, salmon pink, brown and more.
I should not forget to mention that size range is 0 to 4 years and as I have noticed so many fans and followers are cheering for bigger sizes.
If you are feeling crafty this winter, Misha and Puff has released  their first collection of knitting patterns that could make for a great last minute diy Christmas present for a baby in the family. 🙂
