{Design} Cross blanket by Pia Wallen

It seems that since I started this blog, everywhere I look... There it is! The Cross blanket by Pia Wallen. Every Scandinavian design lover wants one, including myself.
It is the less expensive version of the famous 1991 Crux blanket. The 1991 version was a 700$ wool blanket made in Sweden, the "remake" version is made in Peru in ecologically sourced cotton and costs "only" 150£. It comes in a variety of colours: red/white, green/white, grey/white... My favourite would have to be the black/white one.

You can get them from Story North in Surrey. They also have the cutest baby size one.

I will keep an eye on the prices, who knows, maybe they will have a 70% sale one of these days... In the meantime, enjoy these gorgeous images.

What is it about the cross that is so appealing? Just perfect!


You can also make your own cross bunting, follow instructions from Bluebird vintage for a quick and easy project.
