It's the season to get cosy and we can't think of a nicer way to keep the chills at bay than wrapping ourselves up in Lapuan Kankurit's Shakki blanket.
This luxurious Shakki blanket is woven in a bold red, green, and white check pattern using a mix of New Zealand Merino wool and bio-organic cotton. The lightweight blanket is fully reversible with a darker design on the reverse due to the jacquard weave. Two designs in one blanket!
Ideal as an extra layer on the bed or to snuggle under as the nights draw in.
130 x 180 cm.
Once upon a time, there was a man named Juho Annala. The Ostrobothnian winters were freezing cold, so Juho decided to open a wool and felt boot factory in Lankilankoski. He worked so hard that year that he did not realise how important it would turn out to be: it was 1917, and in December an independent nation called Finland would be born. The years went by, the wool textiles sold well and children were born.
Nearly a hundred years later, Lapuan Kankurit is a family business that weaves Finnish quality. Felt boots have been replaced by linen, but the idea is the same: to do it right from the beginning and only the best is good enough. Each woven metre of fabric tells a story of Finnish handicraft.
