There's a saying that familiarity breeds contempt, right? Well, after seeing over 1000 blankets come through our doors, I am still delighted to discover what is in each shipment's box and which ones our customers will snatch up first.
But, there is an element of truth here that the more muted or "typical" colours have become less noteworthy to me. Of course, so many blankets later, I am most intrigued by colours, fabrics, and patterns of kantha that I have never seen before (and yes, even after 1000 blankets, this happens often). Sometimes I make notes to Basha on our orders: less of this, more of that, etc. I can forget that many visitors are coming for the first time and haven't yet become familiar with the reds and blacks and greens.
When I opened up the boxes this time, there was a lot of blue. Last collection (or two), the blues were snapped up so quickly, so I asked for more. And we've got more.
I'm embracing it. A natural colour ebb & flow. When I finally posted the blankets late last night and surveyed the blankets as a whole, I saw a lovely mix of brights and muted, blues and reds, floral and geometric. And I am certainly not bored.
