Shout Out for Swanky Blankets
Blankets, wraps, throws – cozy up to, take out and wrap around. For impromptu picnics, cool nights outside, days at the beach, for a splash of colour on the sofa, bit of jazz on the bed, to wrap up the baby, to pack for the festival, for the new student digs. To brighten up the bike, cruising on a summers day, a glass of wine to share with friends, glamming up, relaxing down – swanky blankets out and about.
Set up in 2016 by Suzanne Smith to shout out about the humble throw – the Tripster throws look good, feel good, are made locally and from natural fibres.
We hope our photos do justice to the softness and lovely textures of the wools and linens.
- Alpaca is gorgeously fine and soft
- the merino lambswool is super-soft and comes in a range of thicknesses
- the pure new wool is robust enough to be used outside as picnic blankets
- Mohair – is soft, delicate and needs a little more care and attention
- Cashmere – well – is cashmere – enough said
- Linen is fresh, light and characterful
All our throws, blankets, wraps and cushions are made in the British Isles, using traditional methods. You’ll find each throw can have slight variations in colour, texture and size due to the weaving process, and hand finishing – but means that each is truly unique and special. If, for any reason you change your mind, the colour doesn’t suit or the texture isn’t what you had in mind, just let us know - we have a no quibble returns policy.
We have sourced our packaging and other supplies as much as possible from small British companies - this has been a lot harder than going big and international but we think it's worth the effort.
We are updating and expanding the Tripster range each season – so keep a look out for something really special.
