POMEGRANATE // WOVEN FRINGE BLANKET
The pomegranate has been a symbol throughout the ages for life and death, fertility, abundance, and rebirth. In Ancient Greek mythology, when Persephone was kidnapped by Hades to be his wife, Hades tricked her into eating six pomegranate seeds and was then doomed to stay in the underworld forever. Her mother (Demeter, Goddess of fertility) went into mourning and cold and darkness stretched across the lands and nothing grew. When her father, Zeus, commanded Hades to release Persephone, he agreed, but only for six months (symbolized by the six seeds). This is how the cycles of the seasons (Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter) were mythologized in Greece. Pomegranates thus symbolized fertility of the land.
Nona's Throw Blanket Collection:
Our hand-drawn woven tapestry throw blankets are elegant yet comfy and are inspired by my childhood naps on my Nona's couch: with her steps away cooking fragrant Greek dishes, my Papou playing Solitaire on the kitchen table, Etta James playing on the radio, and me feeling safe, comfy, cozy, and content as a child in the incredible loving energy of her home. These blankets evoke my most favorite and precious childhood memories of my most cherished person in the world, my Nona. I have been trying to replicate the perfect comfy, snugly, cozy, vintage-vibes blanket from my childhood nostalgia and have been working on this collection for over a year and finally feel proud to release it! The perfect snuggle up with a book blanket. Have a picnic, lounge on the couch, throw this on your bed, hang it on your wall...the possibilities are endless with this amazing blanket - it's a work of art! Makes the perfect gift! Our 60x80 size is HUGE! Literally covers my king size bed. You will absolutely love this beautiful piece! The woven material reminds me of my Nona's blankets; the fringe elevates the design where it can dress up any room.
