For people who love the great outdoors and great design - NZ husband and wife launch boutique brand, Archie Picnic
Kicking off my Things I'd Like for Christmas list.... the launch range of contemporary picnic rugs by NZ couple (currently slow-living the dream in Fiji), Meredith and Jono Perkins. Every few nights, Meredith and Jono take their dinner down to the beachfront to dine as the sun sets. Food goes so much better with fresh air and a good view. Their evening picnics have inspired their new boutique brand Archie Picnic, which launches this week with two limited edition picnic rug styles - the colourful Boodles, and the more moody Glow in the Dark (think fireworks, embers, the night sky), both designed in collaboration with fellow NZ'er and textile designer, Natalie Babbage.
And - I love this - for every picnic blanket sold, Archie Picnic will donate a blanket to a family in need.
As Lady Moyra Cavendish once said: "I don't know if I should. But I judge people by their picnics."
