Gift Guide: Essentials for a Hygge Winter Indoors, via Urbanara

November 22, 2021

What to give the host, the in-laws, the new parents, or just yourself this season? Natural, eco-friendly textiles and homewares to add enduring comfort for settling in indoors.

This year, we’re particularly noting the timelessly stylish bedding, table linens, rugs, and sumptuous blankets from Urbanara. The textiles are crafted by makers in Turkey, Portugal, India, and Lithuania with fair trade practices and an emphasis on using only the best quality, eco-friendly materials (New Zealand lambswool, European linen, and 100 percent organic cotton, for example). Many of them are made with untreated, fast-growing, and recycled PET materials (as in the Urbanara Terra collection); all of them are Oeko-Tex certified, so they’re healthful and free from harmful substances. 

Urbanara’s ethos is about creating sustainable, heirloom-quality homewares at a lower price; thanks to their direct-to-consumer structure, there’s no added markup. It’s a combination that quickly made their pieces some of our favorites for gift-giving this year, sure to add winter warmth for everyone on your list.

Above: For everyone on your list: The luxe Gotland Wool Blanket ($169) is woven from 100 percent Scandinavian new wool; because of the climate where the sheep are raised, the wool has an unusual subtle silvery look that’s unique. The blanket is available in two colorways: mustard (shown) and ultramarine. We also love the Gotland Sheri Blanket ($115), woven in a herringbone pattern, and the Miramar Wool Blanket in lambswool ($99).

The bedding is available in dark grey, natural, and white; a twin-sized duvet cover starts at $199; a pillowcase is $49.

In the background is the Jindas Rug ($399), handwoven in India of 100 percent wool.
