Name That BlanketMonday, March 01, 2010
Check these out. I was recently given some vintage shop samples of Onehunga Blankets. Beautiful little tabs complete edging ribbon and with a sample of the edging ribbon. If you look closely you can see that some still have a little sticker bearing their names – Dusky Pink, Imperial Red, Sunset, Champagne, Maize and so on.
What on earth am I going to do with them that will do them justice? Their names alone have me falling in to textile love. How can you not adore a blanket named Guava? Those without names feel a little orphaned, so maybe I need some new names too.
