Ojbro futhark thorbjorg wool blanket 130 x 220cm
This woollen blanket is knitted in the Futhark design. This design is inspired by our cultural heritage and we help of the Futhark we've created our runic inscription " we honour our cultural heritage" which we then made into a pattern with a classical colour scheme. At Öjbro mitten manufacture we have made it our goal to keep our various knitting traditions alive
About the pattern, from designer Åse Öjbro
"With the Futhark pattern, with the help of our National Antiquities Office (RAÄ), I wanted to use runic writing and carve my rune in a pattern, it says "we honour our cultural heritage". The concept of cultural heritage is my way of bringing history into the present. Our shared cultural heritage gives us a secure foundation to stand on in the face of our new era."
