I first bought a quilt from Naartjie late last year when the Sandton City store opened, and I half wished winter closer so that I could start bundling my toddler in it. The beautiful quilt lives on our sofa for warm snuggling and afternoon naps, and I also put it over my son’s duvet at night for extra warmth. And I’ve just ordered another one for myself.
The quilts are back in store, this time with extra padding, and in colours for boys and girls. They’re lovingly put together by Heartworks, an organisation made up of local crafters. A porton of the profits from each quilt goes to the Naartjie Love Foundation, which helps various children’s charity organisation.
