The group behind Systur & Makar (me, Tota - my partner, my sister María and her husband Börkur) spend quite a lot of time together. Well we have to because of the company, but we also work really well together and enjoy each others company. We have nice patios in each of our homes and during one "patio-evening" we sat around, talking and like so often the talk lead to some brainstorming and idea bouncing. The camping blanket was born!
We were sitting outside during a wonderful summer evening, but as you can imagine here in Iceland, the evenings are cold, and blankets are a necessity!
We got an idea to make a blanket with holes for the arms (you know, to have better access to our drinks), and a closure in the front. It couldn't be to long to drag on the floor when you'd walk and it must be usable for more than one person at a time if you'd spread it out as a normal blanket.
The day after our patio evening I went to the workshop and made the first blanket, soon after we launched it in our stores and now it is available here on-line, simply by clicking the images. The glory of having local production!
A cute gift for the ones who have "everything" and need "nothing"!
Create your own happiness!
