Tell me about your drawing: what is happening here?

Emma: We painted our Daddy’s surfboard. We sprayed paint on it. I drew my dad, my sister and me, and other stuff.

Amanda: I painted a treehouse to decorate the surfboard. I drew papi and me, and a rainbow, and the place where papi was born: Caracas.

Why did you draw this?

Emma: I also drew a rainbow, because it’s my favorite color. Rainbow is my favorite color. We wanted to make the surfboard pretty because it was all grey and it needed some color.

Amanda: I painted a treehouse because I wanted to. I also sprayed red on the surfboard because it’s my dad’s favorite color.

Why?

With our brand new Prêt-à-Porter line, children drawings turn into beautiful objects carefully crafted in Montreal and available on our website and some selected boutiques within the city

You may surely have heard what Pablo Picasso used to say: “Every kid is an artist.” Since the beginning of this project, we have been very focused on our goal: making kids’ art more visible. For that reason, we have embedded their artworks into different formats and turning them into art pieces that all the family could appreciate on a daily basis.

We know that loving parents keep all those drawings carefully in a box, but they don’t necessarily know what to do with them, so we collect them and transform them into beautiful books, posters, calendars, and cards that families can treasure and show with great pride.

It’s been four years since we started Tuta & Coco and now we want to take all this to the next level. We want to share the our kids' art with everyone, even beyond the family circle. We want to see those great and honest, colorful lines everywhere around.

With our brand new Prêt-à-Porter line, children drawings turn into beautiful objects carefully crafted in Montreal and available on our website and some selected boutiques within the city.

We are proud to announce our very first collection: L’Ours (The bear), made with the drawing of Armando, a 5 years old boy. We love the story behind this drawing: Armando’s mom kept it carefully for more than 40 years! Today, Armando is an adult, but his picture still shows all his essence as a young artist. Now his bear is walking around our greeting cards, gift tags and notebooks, the very firsts we have made for all of you.
