Patu - handwoven wool blankets from Pakistan
Patu are wool blankets which men often wear as winter jacket replacement in Pakistan and Afganistan. Our Patu are coming from the Weber Cooperative ICIA in Islampur, Swat-Tal in West Pakistan. Patu-Plaids are wooven mainly from sheep´s wool, but also may contain goat and camel hair. These plaids are a completely natural product and therefore they keep the warmth much better than synthetic blankets. You will be surprised and amazed how quickly our Patu gets warm! Whether you use it in the evening on the sofa, on the balcony, at the picnic or wherever you decide to cuddle up, Patu will keep you warm. Our Patu wool blankets are available in natural tones such as beige, brown and khaki which are decorated along the edges with beautiful colored border lines in different colours: Sometimes the wool plaids have border lines in pleasant earth tones and sometimes in bright colours. Sometimes the border lines are wider, sometimes narrower, sometimes the lines are wavy and sometimes in shape of diamond. The edges of Patu are decorated with nice fringes. Since all Patu-Plaids are woven by hand, the dimensions may vary slightly. Last but not least, Gundara´s blankets are great for children as well, whether as a cover or for building a cave! If at home everyone has their own Patu, there won´t be any fights.
