School’s out and it’s time to get outdoors! And whether you’re beach bound or simply relaxing at home, there’s nothing quite like throwing down a rug and enjoying an impromptu picnic with family and friends. Why not have a look at our frazadas: versatile and vintage, these handwoven textiles, created in the Andes using llama wool and natural pigments, make perfect picnic rugs and the most super stylish of throws on sofas and beds too. Vibrant and full of cultural charm, our hand picked throws have a timeless appeal and each is unique. Our softest vintage Indian kanthas make fabulous picnic rugs too. Check out our latest collections: they’re changing all the time.
And what to eat at your picnic? Try a summer favourite: chop up and roast butternut squash, onions, courgettes and peppers in olive oil. Add a little truffle salt if you have it and black pepper too. Before serving add cooked quinoa and wild rice, some feta, broccoli, fresh coriander, mint and avocado. And finish with a good squeeze of fresh lime. Simple and scrummy.
Have a very happy, very delicious summer!
