Cardinalis, the first wool blanket by the small family company yamabahari, is ready for the winter season.
Inspired by frequent trips to Japan and an amazing winter in Iceland, the small Bulgarian family company yamabahari (yama means mountain in Japanese and bahari translates to sea in Swahili) just launched its first wool blanket, made by 100% high quality New Zealand wool.
Earlier this year Silviya and Konstantin, owners of yamabahari, saw an opportunity to focus exclusively on summer and winter cosy products. After a successful summer with high end linen and cotton beach towels, they continue to challenge the concept of a classic summer or winter-only brand with the launch of their first winter blanket, made by the finest possible materials.
They found a Bulgarian artist who specialised graphics and illustration techniques in Japan and asked him to make a unique illustration to be used in a 100% wool blanket. Veliko Marinchevski, the artist, explains: “I remember each of my paintings. This one is made in Japan, in western parts of Tokyo. Each day I was greeted by different butterflies. The most amazing ones were the Miyama-Karasuageha ones, just beautiful. I saw a Japanese girl there - delicate, elegant like a butterfly. And I made the illustration for yamabahari with the butterflies and the girl.”
The wool blanket is made in Lithuania by a company that started its history in Finland in 19th century as a textile mill.
Bigger in size (130 x 190cm with fringes) than most of other wool blankets, the Cardinalis is named like all of yamabahari’s products after a bird. The highest quality possible 100% New Zealand wool is used, carefully sourced.
