Bunad throws

By Mandal Veveri


  • Description

    Bunad throws (Bunadspledd) is a series of throws launched during the London Design Festival, September 2012. The first Bunad throws were based on bunad motifs from five different regions in Norway; Setesdal, Nordland, Fusa, Bringeklut from West Telemark, and mens bunad from Sunnmøre. In January 2014 two new designs were launched.
    The Bunad Blanket is a new product category that encompasses recognizable aspects from the bunad tradition. Bunads are composed of color in proportion - that means compostition and disposition of surfaces. The bunad is further composed in a series of different materials and techniques such as embroidery, detail seam, pearls, wool, linen, metal and so on. The Bunad throw represents a simplification and transferring of the Norwegian folk costumes. The Bunad throw introduces this rich tradition into our daily environments and interiors.
    The quality of the throws has the right balance between weight and function (not too thick) and it drapes nicely. It is meant as an all-year throw, to be used both at home and in the summer/winter cabin.
