Baby blanket

Anatolian women value the importance of visual stimulation in infant development, and have so for centuries. The bright colours and simple shapes embroidered onto these wool blankets attract babies’ attention when they are wrapped in them, just as toys occupy babies in their strollers or cribs today.

What did your baby blanket look like and how does it compare to this Turkish baby blanket?

My baby blanket did not look like this at all. It had a hood, and was white with lace trim and little pink rose patterns. But it was passed on from my older sister so it was worn. The turkish blanket is much more colorful than mine and more decorative, but the blanket seems very fun and playful.
