Sometimes the perfect gift just jumps out at you. I have a very good friend who is not the easiest girl to buy for. She’s fabulously talented, has a great career and if she wants for anything, she usually buys it herself. This buddy of mine, she travels a lot. So, when I saw this wee number at Banjo & Matilda, it had her name written all over it.
A travel sized pillow and co-ordinating sleep mask in cashmere no less!!! How gorgeous is that? AND – how to feel like you’re (almost) up the pointy end of the plane when you really aren’t…
Here’s the front of the blue set:
and, (just when you thought it couldn’t get any better) here’s the back:
For those of you (like me) who like to have your deluxe cashmere fly incognito, so to speak…
Ooh la la! It comes in black (and a series of other colours), too:
And THEN, (if you are a better friend than me!) there is also…
The matching travel blanket. Hoo-ha!:
Headquartered in Bondi Beach in Sydney, Belynda Macpherson launched her Banjo & Matilda business in 2008. With its philosophy of low maintenance style and comfort – but always in luxe cashmere, mind you – it resonates strongly with the relaxed Aussie lifestyle of sun, sand and the surf.
For those of you who may not be aware, the Banjo & Matilda brand is a lovely Aussie success story. Currently they have a great womens-wear selection, with plans to extend their range into mens and baby.
I can say from experience that the Banjo & Matilda customer service is fantastic. Truly – and, I don’t say that lightly. For those of you outside Australia, they conveniently ship their cashmere worldwide from their on-line store, delivering it in custom-made brown boxes to their customers’ doorsteps. And it arrives fast.
