bunad blankets designed by andreas engesvik

bunad blankets is a series of blankets launched during the london design festival, september 2012. the first bunad blankets that will be shown are based on bunad motifs from five different regions in norway: setesdal, nordland, fusa, bringeklut from west telemark & mens bunad from sunnmøre.

the blankets are developed in cooperation with mandal veveri & are woven from pure wool in mandal. mandal veveri is a nearly 100 year old textile company & is the leading producer of textiles for bunads in norway today.

the bunad is a range of traditional norwegian rural clothes & folk costumes with its roots dating from the 18th & 19th centuries. in norway, it is common to wear bunad at various celebrations such as folk dances, weddings & especially the may 17 national day celebrations.
