Ladak...a new Dutch brand offering some great blankets which are made from recycled material...the base  is an old blanket (I don't know the English name for it, but normally they are being used for transporting fragile goods) ...some old sweaters, jeans, strong fabrics and ribbons are being used as details to give the blanket a new and surprisingly nice new look! Of course each blanket is unique and handmade and... has its own name; named for a homeless and or hero.
These blankets are perfect for an outdoor picnic or and early spring celebration on the terrace. The designers Jantien de Wilde and Jane Stroink are socially involved: 15% of the proceeds will go to a shelter for the homeless in Amsterdam. Their motto: when you are comfortable, they are comfortable! I love Ladak! Would you like to order one ..send the women from Ladak an email. (ps. google translate can help you with the Dutch language)
