The Reika Throw ("wander" in Icelandic) is minimalistic in design but rich in tone and style -- which is exactly how we'd describe Iceland. The throw's design has some striking similarities to Hallgrímskirkja, the Lutheran church and centerpiece of this simple but vibrant city. The inspiration behind Hallgrímskirkja design is Iceland's trap-rocks, mountains, black sand beaches, and glaciers. Being able to weave the city's iconic structure and the country's landscape into a throw was a lot of fun. We hope you like it.

ABOUT SEEK AND SWOON
Seek & Swoon, and their collection of knit throw blankets, was inspired by a love of design, home goods, and a two month European sabbatical owner Jala Smith-Huys took with her husband and two young sons during the summer of 2015. She returned home wanting to start a business that allowed her to preserve her travel memories through creating a quality product that everyone could enjoy and take pride in owning. Thus, Seek & Swoon was born. Most of their designs are influenced by places they have been, places they dream about, and places they've lived.
They are inspired by beautiful places and, in the biggest terms, the world—taking care of it, exploring it, and adding to its beauty. Their products reflect this: each knit throw blanket is made in the USA from recycled yarn. They've partnered with a second generation, family-owned knitting mill that’s just as committed to comfort, quality and design as they are.
When you wrap up in one of their knit throw blankets, we hope you find the same sense of belonging and comfort that you’d find relaxing in a Tuscan vineyard or sipping tea in Edinburgh or savoring a moment in your own home. And we hope that you find the same joy in dreaming about your next adventure.
