Why our picnic blankets are made for classic car lovers

Whilst we’re all about upping the comfort at home, as the seasons change and the weather gets warmer, it’s how we use the cosy accessories on the go that really matters.

The UK is after all full of great places to hike as well as beautiful spots to sit back and simply watch the world go by, which makes our range of picnic blankets popular investments right about now. It’s not just more rugged environments and scenic destinations where our picnic blankets come in handy however.

As we discovered during our recent trip to the Techno-Classica Essen, our picnic blanket designs are made for classic car lovers too!

Our recent visit to Techno-Classica Essen

We recently ventured to Germany to exhibit at the country’s premier Techno-Classica Essen. As one of Europe’s most popular and anticipated classic car shows, the event is a must-visit for anyone who owns or has an interest in the world of vintage, classic or prestige vehicles.

As Magneto details, visitors and exhibitors alike have a lot to look forward to:

“The organisers have ensured the show’s return is up to its usual standards with eight gargantuan pavilions containing a dizzying array of exhibits for the show’s near-200,000 visitors to explore. The pavilions host 1250 exhibitors from over 30 countries, 200 clubs and 2700 cars, with auctions, spares, automobilia, club stands, displays and more.”

The show returned last year after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, and let’s just say it was back with a bang! 2023’s event also didn’t disappoint with hundreds of thousands of people attending across its five-day-long programme of events.

Picnic blankets for classic cars

Classics and picnic blankets – a match made in heaven

One thing our visit to Techno-Classica Essen taught us was that classic car ownership and our wool picnic blankets are the perfect pairing.

Thanks to their compact size, our foldaway and roll-up picnic blankets ensure a storage savvy solution that’s made for the small, narrow boots of classic and vintage vehicles. Our roll-up blankets in particular ensure a neat design that’s the perfect fit.

Our picnic blankets offer more than just great, comfortable places to perch at lunchtime. They drape beautifully across rear classic car seats to deliver a stylish flourish that protects and preserves that precious upholstery and still looks super chic.

The perfect present for classic car enthusiasts

Whether you’re looking for the perfect present for an upcoming birthday or Father’s Day 2023, our picnic blankets are fantastic choices. Our brand new check picnic blankets – seen here in Violet Navy, Mustard, Dark Walnut, Ruby Red, and Olive Green – provide a selection of masculine colours made for stylish classic car owners.

Like our other roll-up designs, these check numbers bring together a 100% Merino wool upper side and water-repellent, Scottish-made waxed cotton ground side to ensure a durable, convenient, eco-friendly and elegant design that you can take on every adventure, including the best classic car events of 2023!
