Our Quilted Playmats are true heirloom pieces. Exquisitely handmade in Nepal using our hand-blocked Celestial moon and stars print, they are thickly wadded with cotton to give them a substanial, weighty feel. Each block printed mat is bound in bright yellow cotton and completed with a sheer muslin cover which can be removed and washed.
Good to know
All of our fabrics are block printed by hand by our artisans and cooperatives in India and Nepal.
The generous fill also makes them suitable as a play surface on hard and carpeted floors
Each mat measures 110 x 100cm
The muslin cover is machine washable at 30 degrees and the mat can be carefully spot cleaned by hand
Can you use the mat without the muslin cover? Absolutely! These mats look fab with or without the cover, just bear in mind that the mat can only be spot cleaned by hand
What age range are these mats suitable for? Newborn upwards. These mats are real favourites and seem to end up staying in nurseries for years!
Can you gift wrap playmats? Yes! We fold them before wrapping in our recycled cotton paper and them tie them with ribbon. They then go into one of our bespoke pink envelopes for shipping

We are a small business making lovely things for small people
Willa and The Bear was founded by Hattie in 2014. Mama to Willa, Maud and Gus, Hattie knows a thing or two about the parenting journey and the stuff that helps make life a little bit easier!
We believe in quality and longevity
Every one of our pieces is designed by Hattie in Norfolk and made in small, female run studios in India or Nepal. Shilpa in Jaipur and Rojina in Kathmandu oversee our makers who are all true artisans in their field, block-printing and finishing each item by hand.
Ethical production only
We only use trusted makers and supply chains who operate completely ethically. No mass produced, anonymous factory settings for us which means that our products are invariably more expensive to produce but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We know that our customers appreciate this important part of our manufacturing process too.
Our female-led studios mix our environmentally-friendly dyes entirely by hand...
Hattie's designs are painstakingly transferred to specially prepared wooden blocks which are then carved by hand. The designs are then printed onto our fabric by skilled artisans who create perfect repeat patterns entirely by eye.
