Afghan Patu - Traditional Throw or Woollen Blanket
This patu is a traditional Afghan / Pakistani shawl / plaid to warm you up during winter while sitting on your sofa, or hiking the Afghan mountains when it is -20°C... Called patu in Afghanistan, it can be easily turned into a throw, plaid or a (baby) blanket. Traditionally worn by men, let's call it a winter coat, it is wide enough to hide a kalashnikov, or close enough to ground color to hide from helicopters. In the summer one can use this plaid for picknicks. If one has a baby or kid, it is a perfect baby or kid's blanket.
The patu is of course machine washable and it is made from pure wool. Our throws are available in a variety of tones, white, grey, brown and green...
