Meet The Quiz Family

Karla Quiz

This season, we decided to approach the baby portion of our catalog a bit differently. We wanted to capture the real moments. Those moments where mom sits quietly with baby… enjoying the calm before the day’s storm. The sibling moments, the details of tiny toes and curled fingers — The everyday magic that happens at home.

The Art of Origami

5W22125-393The ancient art form of origami has been handed down from parent (or relative) to child through many generations, all over the world. The word origami comes from the Japanese words “ori” which means “folding” and “kami,” which means “paper.” To make origami, paper is folded in many different ways to form beautiful creations. Origami art is a highly revered art form in Japan. It was once taught in schools, but today, children learn the craft at home.

Origami served as inspiration for our newest collection, particularly on our Boy’s Origami Graphic Tee. The graphic on this tee is of a origami crane. The crane is perhaps the most well-known origami model. It is also the international symbol for peace. While it may look hard, origami just takes some practice! Learn how to make an origami crane and pass the art form down to your little citizen.

FOREIGN CORRESPONDENTS: A Family Trip Through Greece

paragraph 1Our summer was magical.  We are so lucky to be able to bring our children to the place of their roots, Greece, where my parents grew up and where my husband’s paternal grandfather hailed from, too.  Greece is a country that loves children, embraces the sun, respects the sea, and takes great pride in its very ancient history.
