Bunad Blankets





Even though it's summer and boiling hot at the moment, I really would not mind having one of these Bunad Blankets by Norwegian designer Andreas Engesvik on my bed. Launched only last September as part of the London Design Festival, the blankets draw inspiration from the 'bunad' - traditional Norwegian folk costumes and rural clothes that date all the way back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The blankets are based on bunad motifs from different regions in Norway, which I think is really cool.

To read more about the blankets, you can pop on over here. Various websites have told me they're available for purchase, however sadly I cannot find any online store that sells them!
