Some of us at Remodelista (OK, all of us) are mildly obsessed with the Swiss cross motif; here are six ways to help you survive your next mountain holiday in style.

Above: Dutch-born, Switzerland-based interior designer Mikee Westerling has made a career out of creating inventive pieces made with vintage Swiss Army blankets, such as these Wood Log Bags. Contact Westerling directly at Des Alpes for pricing and ordering information.

Above: A Swiss Cross Medicine Box is an apt way to organize all your first aid medical supplies; $39.27 from Amazon (in the UK, it’s £17.86 at Amazon UK).

Above: A holiday in the mountains is not complete without the requisite Swiss Army Blanket; $298 from Sundance. Etsy seller Ode to June always has a few on offer as well.

Above: Swiss Army blanket candleholder; contact Des Alpes for pricing and shipping information.

Above: Hydrate yourself in the dry mountain air with the Swiss Cross Red Touch Sigg Bottle; $23 from Swiss Made or £15.33 from Amazon UK.

Above: Einstein Lip Theory can go a long way to relieving those chapped lips; $1.75 from Simply Swiss or £4.18 from Amazon UK.
