Heart of the King Basotho Blanket (Turquoise and Black). "The Heart of the King" or "Pelo-Ha-Morena" genuine Basotho Blanket is part of the Victoria England range. The range originates from the late 1800's when Queen Victoria visited then Basotholand and bestowed upon King Lerotholi Letsie the gift of a blanket. Little formal commentary exists for this particular design but its intricate design of hearts and crowns is thought to symbolize a love for the king or chief.

Louis Vuitton A/W 12 Ad Campaign featuring one of my favorite looks, the travel blanket coat. Inspired by a South African culture called the Sotho tribe. They walk around covered in blankets with these same patterns because of the very cold weather in the winters due to the mountains surrounding their country. It has since become some kind of Fashion. Inspiring.
