Blankets in May...?

It's mid-May...and temperatures are droping to 11 degrees this week. Too cold for this time of year!! Not OK!

Luckily northbound store has great cotton blankets from Sweden to keep you warm in the evenings...just throw it over your shoulders or lay it over your lap and enjoy the chilly evening even longer! The blankets are made of 100% brushed cotton and it feels sooo incredibly soft! They will warm you up...but not too sweating, yuck! No...the cotton is light and 'breathes'. Sigh!

Fabulous Goose is a Swedish company founded on a desire to live a life with qual­ity. And quality is not based on looks alone, but rather on a fusion between design, production ethics, and safe authen­tic materials.

Materials and manufacturing are sustainable with a local production in Denmark, Sweden and Germany.

Fabulous Goose is all about fun, multitude, open minds, smartness, and above all great design at a fair price for all of us! Enjoy...

Look 'm up in our webshop!

Matthew Langille

Recently Matthew Langille, NY based illustrator, posted a link to on his facebookpage.

A real honor, coz we really love his work! Two nordic brands that we sell use his illustrations on their designs: Fabulous Goose from Sweden and The Baand, from Denmark.

Matthew has already made a name for himself working with some of the best-known global fashion houses and design firms around the world, such as Marc by Marc Jacobs, Adidas, Swatch, Haviana's, Victoria's Secret etc.

@ northbound store you can see his designs when clicking on Fabulous Goose or The Baand

Fabulous goose offers us great pillows and blankets, with illustrated designs by Matthew. It's called the Wild Things collection. The Predator blanket sounds quite scary...but when you see the owls on that super soft blanket, you just want to cuddle into it. And the pillows...they're just pure FUN to have on your favorite couch. Big Booty Mouse, or mr. Fly Guy...such humorous and expressive characters!

The Baand offers us super comfortable fashion basics of 100% organic cotton from Peru. An honest product, with great designs! Let's meet Philbert...he's the manager of The Baand on Tour. And, yes, he's got it all under control...being an old rocker himself. Matthew Langille made Philbert come to life through his marker. Be a fan, get Philbert @ northbound store!

We hope to see lots more by Matthew Langille! northbound will follow his designs for our nordic neighbors!
