When one thinks of a traditional quilt design, heirlooms and DIY crafts come to mind. Drawing inspiration from the literature and history of Iceland, creative studio Bork creates a range of printed blankets that are both beautiful and sentimental.

These quilt designs marry traditional construction motifs with a cultural inspiration and are modeled after the themes of four Icelandic fables. Each of these printed blankets references a specific tale and is crafted using quality fabrics from 66°NORTH, an outdoor goods company that hails from Bork's native Iceland.

Whether adorned with mountain peaks, floating feathers or abstracted human forms, these blankets are sure to become covetable items for art collectors and Icelandic design enthusiasts with an interest in their nation's heritage.
