Blabla was created in 2001 by us, Susan Pritchett and Florence Wetterwald,
two good friends with the same philosophy of life and beauty.
While visiting Peru, we came across entire villages of expert knitters
who had been keeping the tradition alive for generations.
Inspired by their talent and the incredible quality and softness of Peruvian cotton,
we decided to start our own company of cuddly knitted products for children.
Joseph, Flo's husband, joined us a couple of years later.
Florence is a French artist who studied sculpture and industrial design in Europe and the USA.
She is the creative force and designer of Blabla.
Susan is from Albany, Georgia. She worked as a photo and film stylist in NY and Australia before coming back to Atlanta.
She is the voice of Blabla and is in charge of marketing and communication.
Joseph is from Atlanta. Film and business were his majors. He is Blabla's locomotive and CFO.
We have now been collaborating with the same artisans for over fifteen years.
With a commitment to fair trade, environmental awareness, and continuous involvement in various humanitarian causes,
Blabla's mission is to continue to inspire joy and laughter and to make the world a better place for all of us.
Look out for our latest adventure!
We are creating a series of modern Baby Board Books published by Random House,
featuring our colorful characters who inhabit a papier mâché world.
Their stories, told through little photo vignettes, are sweet and humorous.
The first two will be released October 25, 2016, with more to come in 2017.
