ABOUT THE PHOTOS:
The harshness of this water tank with it's similar tonal range only served enhance the comforting softness of this blanket. The images of this blue case were taken behind an old shed on the sheep farm we live on... these old sheds and tanks add to that sense of nostalgia as well compliment the character of the old blanket used to create this unique guitar case.

THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE DESIGN:
After seeing many beautiful old blankets in op shops time and time again, some with holes or burn marks but still with loads of character... I decided these old beauties needed to be given a new purpose, transformed into statement pieces and that is what inspired this collection of guitar cases and totes. I made repurposed blanket guitar cases for both my son & I and after we started learning to play the guitar together, we've thoroughly road tested the cases taking them on road trips with us as well as to and from school and our tutor's studio... the response we had to these has been amazing!

Recently, I started selling at a local artisan market and the number of people that simply could not resist picking up and engaging with my guitar cases was overwhelming, a lot of them were people who did not even own a guitar. They're practical, unique and even nostalgic for some... taking them down memory lane back to a time when they once had a blanket just like it on their bed. I have given these blankets a new sense of purpose and brought their character out in the open for all to enjoy once again!

ABOUT THE CASE:
This is guitar case (in the first image) is a made for a full size classical guitar case and is ready to ship. The outer layer is made from a 100% wool salvaged blanket consisting a range of dusty blues, browns and cream. All blankets are washed thoroughly, hung out in the sun for several days for natural steralizing and airing. The lining is made from cotton fleece. The handles are secured with rivets for extra strength. The case is trimmed with a muted brown poly/cotton bias and adorned with a recycled bamboo 'by marie-nicole' label. An extra special feature of this case is that it bares the original blanket label, which are not always in tact or legible.

CUSTOM ORDERS WELCOME:
If you'd like to order a 1/2 size classical guitar (like the one in the background of the last image) OR a case for a different shaped guitar, simply place a custom order, all I require is a outline traced of the guitar and a measurements which I will specify after you've placed your order. As for colours, the colours and patterns on custom ordered cases, that will vary according to the blankets I have on hand at the time of ordering. If you'd like to find out what is available before placing your order simply message me and I'll send you pics.
