Forming part of the Indigofera x Björn Atldax Skull Project is The Safe Haven blanket. A history lesson in pirate ship iconography.
FABRIC: 100% Norwegian wool
SIZE: 205cm x 150cm
ORIGIN: Made in Norway
Made in collaboration with artist, Björn Atldax, Indigofera’s Safe Haven blanket is a roll call of woven, nautical warnings. Pirate flags, after all, used many more symbols than the simple skull & crossbones. The flags were designed to frighten and intimidate a pirate's intended victims. Pierced hearts spoke of the willingness to kill, horns invited a likeness to the devil, and the Kraken displayed a fearless mastery of the sea. Nakedness dispensed with any notion of shame, and the hourglass reminded you that your time was up.
This is one of ten blankets that make up Indigofera’s 10 Skull Project - the result of a longstanding collaboration with visual artist, Björn Atldax. Each blanket is individually numbered and labelled with a commemorative 10 Skull Project' patch and includes a cotton twill postman bag for easy carrying.
All of Indigofera’s blankets are crafted in central Norway by a family-owned factory using premium, 100% wool. The factory has been weaving quality wool products for 80 years. They have a hand in every element of the making process, from the spinning and dyeing of the yarn to the weaving of the blankets themselves. Even the wool comes from sheep native to the area. Indigofera’s blankets are built to be lived and travelled in – take them on your wildest adventures or keep them for those quiet nights on the couch. The choice is yours.
