yesterday i had fun shopping around the city with julie scelfo from the nytimes for the paper’s “” column. we hopped around from store to store in brooklyn and manhattan and ended up at an old favorite, in union square. after scouring their sale section for great deals, we wandered over to the bedding section and i fell head over heels for this pink wool blanket that sadly was above my shopping budget. this beautiful is a traditional tribal blanket of the basotho people of lesotho. decorated with “badges of the brave” (a print commemorating the battle of britain in 1941), the blanket is the perfect weight for using as a bedcover, or as a heavy-weight blanket to keep on the couch if you have a particularly chilly home. to check out all of anthro’s basotho blankets and shop online.
