Starting out as a blog back in 2011, Milo and Mitzy is now the name many of us associate with beautiful wool throws designed and made here in NZ. In an exclusive collaboration, Hawkes Bay-based founder Amy Tennant has teamed up with textile designer Virginia Star Busmann of Forestry in the Netherlands, to produce a stunning new product, the Circle | Grid Blanket.
The name Forestry actually comes from New Zealand's forestry beach on the East coast of the North Island, where Virginia spent family holidays before moving to the Netherlands in 2009. The Circle | Grid blanket reflects both Virginia's love of creating simple, quality woollen blankets, and Amy's passion for New Zealand wool.
Made in Europe from 100% New Zealand lambs wool, this soft, cosy, reversible blanket weaves raw natural beauty with a strong, graphic design that will look amazing in any decor. Of course it couldn't have come at a better time for those of us in the thick of winter, but it easily transitions from the bed to the sofa, all year round. Large in size, I also think it would make the perfect picnic companion!
To celebrate this exciting launch, Forestry & Milo and Mitzy are giving away one of their gorgeous blankets, valued at $199.00NZD!
Update: The competition has now closed. Congratulations to the winner, Melissa Craig!! Thanks to everyone who entered - we had a huge response, and thanks to Forestry & Milo and Mitzy.
For those interested in purchasing a blanket, they measure 130 x 190 cm and are available to buy from Piece Makers here in NZ, or through Forestry in Europe. For wholesale enquiries email Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org
