Deep Splendor

The "Deep Splendor“ collection mirrors the moment of renewal between rain and sunshine and the ensuing magical energies. Produced in Scotland, these pieces found their inspiration in the Highlands, where the light seems to dictate all, where each moment gleams in varying colors and the same landscape continually evolves. Clouds, crags and water are part of the constant canvas, and when the rain falls and the sun comes out, everything seems to shine. Colors’ intensity increase, and raindrops turn into diamonds. Red and yellow, green, the flowering heather and the gray of the crags. These are the colors that come together continually, shining and bright but also profound and humble, creating perfect, magical moments to redirect one’s gaze inside. 

 

The collection encompasses blankets and bed throws.

Light Companion

The travel blanket collection is produced in Florence, Italy where Catharina Mende studied the arts. After more than twenty years, she now regularly gazes at the Florentine Dome and visits favorite haunts and old friends. Deep friendship is precious. While traveling, the modern nomad needs a true friend and companion, giving a sense of comfort and warmth. The travel blankets belong in every travel bag, in every car or on a balmy summer night, on every chair.

Spotted & Beyond

The "Spotted & Beyond“ collection pays tribute to magical moments of surprising, visual perspectives. All of a sudden, spaces and details come into focus - like a fleeting impression or a passing thought -, just to disappear a moment later. 

The woven mohair blankets convey somewhere far-off in a diffuse distance, a place beyond details. As if squinting into the horizon, shapes and colors appear in a certain light, only to disappear in the blink of an eye. The fluid transitions and natural sheen of the monochromatic structures and color planes heighten this sense of a dreamy gaze into somewhere far, far away. 

The jacquard knit of the merino blankets allows for motifs with clear contours and details. Organic shapes and graphic patterns catch one’s gaze, suppressing all other thoughts - if only for a moment. An object, the detail of an image or a play of light – each can conjure up an unexpected interpretation … like the pattern of the turtle’s shell. 

 

The collection encompasses blankets, baby blankets and cushions.
