So Cosy began life with no name, on a market stall in Spitalfields. Soon it became obvious that we had an amazing product; people just loved our beautiful, luxurious blankets made only from the finest alpaca, merino and sheep wools. It was great going to work and hearing comments like ‘the softest blanket I’ve ever felt’ and ‘it’s like I’m being cuddled – it’s so warm’ so the passion within us just grew and grew. Determined to make a real go of our hobby, we got a regular pitch at St Albans market and after a really successful weekend at the Country Living Show in 2011, we decided to leave our day jobs and focus solely on our new company, now named So Cosy Ltd.
As a former fashion designer and pattern cutter, Rimsky has a keen eye for design, textiles and colour. Vilija also comes from an artistic background and together their knowledge allows them to design and create beautiful throws and blankets, both traditional and modern, to complement all interiors.
Rimsky and Vilija know their oh-so-cosy blankets and throws will offer comfort and luxury to every person lucky enough to own one.
“We have always been, and always will be, an ethical brand. We believe in keeping the manufacture of our pure alpaca throws within Peru to help the local economy. We only use natural dyes to colour our products. We offer all customers, whether they are new or existing, honest advice on which blanket would best suit their needs, on care and washing instructions and, because we use only natural fibres, we can assure you that all our products will last for many years to come.”
