I LOVE a picnic, probably because we used to picnic almost every w/e when I was a child most likely as a reward/bribe for trooping around yet another stately home as my mother collected decorating tips! I have been searching for what we used to call a 'Travelling Rug' which was a good quality wool rug that lived in the car and acted as a picnic blanket in the summer and to warm cold legs and feet in the winter. They always had a checked pattern and I have been searching the world to find one and was finally successful in Rioja of all places! I adore this collection in claret, forest green or taupe - they are the classic picnic rug of my childhood and incredibly smart.
