Progress Chic | Bunad Blankets
These colorful wool Bunad Blankets from UK retailer Really Well Made are inspired by patterns from regions in Norway: Setesdal, Nordland, Fusa, Bringeklut, and Sunnmøre. The blankets offer contemporary graphic design but the ‘Bunader’ they take after are actually traditional costumes with roots in rural clothes from the 18th and 19th centuries. Designer Andreas Engesvik worked with century-old Norwegian manufacturer Mandal Veveri to make the Blankets. Another great exampel of what's old is new again.
