I’m at the point in my life now where I need a good picnic blanket! There have been numerous times where Ive gone to the park on a whim or down to the beach and forgotten to bring something to sit on. These days you don’t have to settle for the same old chequered picnic blanket you used to see your mum and dad using. There are so many stylish options on the market and a print thats perfect for everyone.
Here are some of my favourite finds this Summer!
The Rock Rug collection is the first release of neoprene picnic blankets for Murph and Murph featuring original prints from Rottnest Island (an island 20km off the Western Australian Coast). Its a place where I and most other West Aussies have spent a lot of time during our summer holidays growing up.
Murph and Murph Picnic Blankets $220
Each blanket is 2m x 1.4m in size and made of a single sheet of super soft neoprene – and better still they are machine washable!
Basil Bangs are widely known for their Outdoor products and most famously their iconic umbrellas. They have now added the Love Rug to their range which is a 1.8m water repellant outdoor polyester canvas, which can easily be wiped to keep your rug clean with minimal fuss.
