The Australian Wedding Blanket

Regular price $685.00 Sale

Start a unique family tradition with the gift of a handcrafted Australian Wedding Blanket.

Each of our Wedding Blankets has a traditional story of love and life woven in each stitch:

It begins with two souls side by side, promising their love and devotion.

The twists and turns of their life's journey are celebrated by capturing the light and sharing the joy of the ups, and embracing the love during the downs.

Fun and happiness are captured in the moments that make up a life, memories made, friends shared, the little 'bits' that decorate the fabric of our world.

The simple cross stitch conjures feelings of home, and the anticipation of marking off the days until the next big event.

The abundance of life is gathered in lush bundles of Merino wool, pure and simple, full and rich with life.

 

The Australian Wedding Blanket is more than a pretty accessory. Good luck and our warmest best wishes are crafted into each unique handcrafted blanket - 

  • Golden thread to bind the couple into a better destiny, a tightly-knit community of family and close friends
  • Silver thread to induce wealth and prosperity
  • White silk ribbon for purity of heart and soul, honesty in every word
  • 'Something Blue' ribbon 
  • Sequins to capture the moments of joy, our memory bubbles and capture the light in our everyday (sequins are also used as an 'evil eye' to ward off nasty spirits)

We LOVE personalisation, please contact us to discuss what we could do to make this even more special for your happy couple.

Previously we have used different coloured sequins to represent the couple and their kids, included different ribbons colours for each family, had ribbon printed with the bride and grooms name and wedding date and stitched into the 'life journey' section, attached grandma's wedding ring, embroidered the couple's names, attached silver charms sent in by family members. Please allow additional time to avoid disappointment on the big day.
