This design was made by Maija Louekari to celebrate her famous floral print called Siirtolapuutarha's 10 year anniversary. In Finnish, this pattern's name "Eläköön Elämä" means "Long Live Life." Bring exceptional beauty to those little moments you love in life, such as spending a rainy day reading under your favorite blanket.

Even the fringe has lovely, unexpected details like an intricate twist of white and black threads. Look closely, and you'll find that a gold thread runs subtly throughout the blanket for a bit of surprise sparkle in the sunlight.
