Wrapped Attention

From their sweet rosy cheeks to their delectable little toes, you know your baby looks good enough to eat, and now he or she can dress the part with this fiesta-worthy rendition of swaddling clothes. Soft layers of stretchy cotton-polyester blend "tortilla" envelop your cutie keeping them cuddled, secure, and looking deliciously adorable. Since too much heat can cause baby (and his or her parents) to lose their cool, the breathable fabric blend ensures that the little one will stay at a comfortable mild temperature even through summer's most scorching days. A matching hat provides the perfect topping, and a tortilla-style bag with zesty "nutritional" facts provides ample fodder for laughs during the baby shower. When it comes to standout baby gifts, this set is the whole enchilada. Cut and sewn by hand in Los Angeles, California.

Katharine Harlan Owens

Before going into the baby business, Katharine Harlan Owens began her career in Wine Marketing in Napa, CA. She loved working in the wine industry because it allowed her to combine her passion for wine and food with her entrepreneurial spirit and love of marketing. As a self-proclaimed "foodie," Katharine credits Julia Child for inspiring her to be a strong woman both in the office and in the kitchen.

In early 2012, she embarked on a new career path, deciding to develop a product idea to keep her mind active and inspired while she hunted for jobs. She never thought this idea would develop into her company but she is so grateful to be where she is today.

Katharine's goal when she built this company was to inspire every mother and baby to enjoy the greatness of life. As Julia would say: Bon Apetit! collection

        Our daughter and son in-law laughed hysterically when they opened this gift. They can't wait to use it for their newborn baby. A truly unique gift. Loved how the blanket is round, just like a tortilla.

              I bought this to give to our nephew and his wife who is of Mexican descent, and its a joke that she is his hot tamale'. this is the perfect gift for their soon to be born baby girl. I purchased it as a cute joke but was so impressed with it when it arrived. sooooo soft. made very well. this was my first purchase from uncommon goods and was very pleased with it.

                                    How cute will my grandbaby look dressed as a burrito? Utterly cute, that's how much! The fabric is soft, and the blanket (Seriously here) is a great size. There was no skimping on the making of it.

                                                  We saw this in the SkyMall magazine while flying and thought, "OMG, we have to get this for our newphews baby shower!!!". My nephew is 1/4 Mexican and embraces his heritage. There have been plenty of healthy jokes over the years but this one took the award for best baby present, EVER! It was the hit of the baby shower.
