In october we are interested in throws
When the wind is blowing from four different ways and nose is starting to change color like leaves on the trees, it is important to have something warm and cosy waiting for you at home. A companion to watch a movie with or an extreme scarf to survive the wintery weather – the plaid is a must have item for the season.
For us the “must have” means that there are quality materials used to make the throw and it also looks good. While doing the research we figured out that when it comes to blankets, one of the important things is the graphic art which makes the throw appealing and different from the others. Here are some products that catched our eyes and had the values mentioned above. Take a look and decide which is your favorite blanket from the selection?
Dotti | www.dotti.ee
Dotti is a textile brand from Estonia. They play with big graphic patterns to create different textiles for home-decor. The big dots on the plaids compose a bold pattern, which we liked. There are some bright color combination as well as some options with more humble color schemas like black-grey-white. The plaids are available in Estonian Design House’s online-store, the price is from 119 €.
