Pia Wallen is a Swedish designer famous worldwide and the Cross blanket above is probably her most iconic project. It is actually related to the Crux Blanket which was born in 1991, becoming quickly a must-have for any Scandinavian design lover (me included but just a few years later). This new version is made of organic cotton and - thanks God I' want to say - much cheaper than the original Crux blanket. The pattern was chosen by Pia by the values, that a cross represents. In Swedish folk art tradition, the cross is a strong symbol for hope. Is there anything better to WISH YOU ALL A MARVELLOUS NEW YEAR'S BEGINNING?

The Cross Blanket is available at Storynorth webshop, where I'll order mine as soon as my pocket will allow me! Happy brand new week!
