The humble picnic blanket has seen some serious upgrades over recent years and we are now spoilt for choice with picnic blankets intended to make outdoor dining a luxury.
Do you require a picnic blanket that moonlights as a towel and a sarong? No problem. How about a Hermes picnic blanket dressed up in a little leather harness? Regardless of your preferences, there is a picnic blanket to suit everyone. So let’s take a look at the most divine picnic blankets on the planet right now.
So what makes the ideal picnic blanket?
Ideally a picnic blanket must be lightweight, and ideally have a waterproof backing for damp or wet ground, be visually beautiful or scream summer beach party. And ultimately, have a carrying strap for walks to the beach.
This is the most divine picnic blanket I’ve ever seen. Made from durable cotton canvas, featuring hand-drawn artwork and coated with UPF30+
The backing is made of waterproof canvas to keep you dry from the damp ground and each blanket is adorned with handmade cotton tassels and woven carry straps.
