Indigofera x Wes Lang

     Yes, you may have blankets already but allow us to present a likely superior option: Indigofera’s handwoven, 100% Norwegian wool blanket designed by Brooklyn artist, Wes Lang.

     Lang, who has shown his work across the US and showcased at MoMA, is known for heavy use of American tropes in a classic Americana style. Think grim reapers, tattoo roses, American Indian iconography, eagles, pin-ups, The Grateful Dead lyrics and skulls, skulls, skulls. But, in a twist of irony, it was at a gallery in Copenhagen that Indigofera co-founder Mats Andersson discovered Lang’s work. It didn’t take long for the two men to meet and discover a shared love of craftsmanship and detail that led to these incredible blankets.

     Indigofera blankets are made to be used and loved as their finely combed wool ages without wearing out. They will only become softer and more comforting over years of netflix watching, but they are also stunning as wall hangings or draped over a couch. And considering these are seriously limited in supply (only 200 were made) a bit of hustle is in order if you don’t want to find yourself, or a loved one, in the midst of winter without the coolest blanket on the market.
