Description

Finarte’s Väre throw brings a touch of Finnish nature and ancient folklore to your home. The organic brushstrokes of the throw's pattern evoke images of an ancient forest that vibrates with eternal life – the name Väre literally translates to “vibration” or “ripple”. Made of 100% wool and finished with fringed ends, the blanket is woven by hand in Latvia.

The Väre throw is part of Finarte’s special collaboration with the National Museum of Finland: designed by ceramic and textile artist Marianne Huotari, the Väre collection is inspired by the museum building and its famous ceiling frescoes by Akseli Gallen-Kallela. Additionally, Huotari was inspired by Gallen-Kallela’s mural designs that never came to fruition – the Väre pattern is her modern interpretation of the forgotten frescoes.
