The Antipodean Collection Check Blankets are a bold take on our Heritage Collection; their bespoke, contrasting colour combinations symbolising the coexistence of light and dark within nature, and within ourselves.

We selected these colour combinations specifically to create this exclusive designer range, their THICK check pattern honouring our need to go BIG, to stay open to moments of expansion and grandiose adventures, with BIG feels, BIG dreams and BIG ideas.

The Antipodean Collection Check Blankets will bring an air of optimism into any space; whether it’s inside your home, or accompanying you on spontaneous adventures—lazy paddock picnics, whimsical garden parties, sun-drenched long lunches, BBQs with family & friends when we’re all reunited.

Your Antipodean check blanket is the perfect canvas to the magic hidden in life’s little moments of adventure. Let yourself dream big and DON’T let the bad news stories from our weary world erode your joy, mute your grand adventure dreaming, or steal your ability to tolerate life’s contradictions.

Wattleseed

‘Wattleseed’, a native superfood that has nourished Australia’s First Peoples for millennia, is harvested from various species of Acacia, of which there are almost one thousand species throughout Australia. Wattleseed plantations are scattered throughout the low areas between our rugged Grampians ranges (Gariwerd), including grassy woodland and the wetter pockets of bush.

For us, wattleseed symbolises patience and resiliency. Wattle seeds need to survive drawn-out periods of dormancy, deep underground, their super hard husks protecting the seeds inside for up to 20 years until they’re able to germinate after bushfires sweep through their home.

Our Wattleseed Antipodean Check Blanket is a balance of muted, grounding light brown, blended with a brilliant shot of gold celebrating the wattle blossom bursting through the region in spring.

We love our Antipodean Check Blankets because—

  • They have a luxurious and soft feel – they’re not fuzzy so they won’t shed
  • Their thick plaid checks in bespoke colour combinations make a bold yet balanced statement in your home or picnic spread
  • They’re super durable and are perfect for all your outdoor adventures; paddock picnics, garden parties, family BBQs… you name it, they’ll handle it
  • They can double as a travel picnic blanket or a rustic poncho to stay warm at outdoor festivals

Additional Information

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?!
