Kappa Blanket - Brown/Light Blue/Beige
Indigofera has been making the softest and best blankets in our industry for a long time. These are all made in Norway in the same family-owned factory that's been open since the 1940's. We find people hang these more as a work of art than for personal use...but don't get it twisted. These are made for the long haul. You can use these to keep you warm in the winter or for camping in the backwoods.
This particular design is a collaboration between Indigofera and Björn Atldax. The Kappa is an amphibious yokai demon or imp found in traditional Japanese folklore. Kappa live in the ponds and rivers of Japan.
It has a cavity in its head that retains water or some sort of liquid. That liquid is Kappa's power and life force. Yet a mischievous trickster and a demon pulling other living creatures underwater to drown them, Kappa also prtects the ones who befriend it.
Kappa love cucumber. If you write your name in a cucumber and throw it in the river where Kappa lives, then the Kappa will not attack you or your family members. That is also why the sushi roll containing only rice and cucumber is called "Kappa-maki."
Because Kappa is obsessed with politeness, it is said that one can defeat Kappa by making a deep bow as Kappa will return the bow. And when it returns the bow to you, the liquid in the cavity of Kappa's head runs out and the Kappa loses it magical powers.
