Indigofera x Wes Lang

November 18th, 2013 / by Kali Hays / no comments / permalink

     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.

Winter vs. Spring

February 2nd, 2013 / by Vincent / no comments / permalink

Winter vs. SpringEarly this frigid February morning in Punxsutawney, PA, the “seer of seers” and “sage of sages” Punxsutawney Phil, emerged from his lair and did not see his shadow. You know what that means, an early spring!

We are not out of the woods yet people. In the cold crisp light of day, it is still going to be frigid for a minute. So bundle up with Jo Gordon’s cozy knit accessories from Scotland. Crafted from locally spun wool and produced in long established mills. Jo’s scarves, hats, and gloves combine Scottish Fair Isle heritage with a bold modern twist.

In consideration of Phil’s prediction, all Jo Gordon will be 50% off. If you’re over it, get a head start on spring with a bejeweled blast of color!
