The Antipodean Collection celebrates life’s vital opposites; expansion and contraction, yin and yang, chaos and comfort, hope and despair. We’re reminded that where shadow exists, so too does light; an ever-present equipoise bringing about stability, composure, equanimity…
Available in seven bespoke colour combinations BELLFIELD, WATTLESEED, SHIRAZ, CYPRESS, FERN, ASH, and TERRA ROSSA, The Antipodean Collection Check Blankets are inspired by the rugged grandeur of the Grampians region; the mountains, the terrain, the landscape, the vineyards, the flora and the fauna.
‘Antipodes’ comes from a Greek word meaning ‘with feet opposite (ours)’, and was adopted by Britain to describe Australia and New Zealand, referring to our position on the globe as diametrically opposite theirs.
Perfectly balanced with their muted tones grounding us in reality, inviting us to be at peace with retreat and self-nurture, yet woven in harmony with a POP of colour, a symbol of joy and optimism.
Despite the endless unknowns stretching out before us right now, we can be sure of some things; the world will keep turning, the seasons will always change, and life’s opposites will always confuse and challenge us. Just a part of this chaotic human experience, right?!
