Hottest Hamptons Hostess Gift: Pretty Rugged Gear Faux Fur Blankets
A lifelong boater, Pretty Rugged Gear Founder Tracy Slocum (above) spends much of the year on Lake George with family and friends. Her seafaring roots date back to the late 1800’s, when her great-great-grandfather, Captain Joshua Slocum, became the first man to sail around the world alone.
Tracy shares, “As anyone who lives in the Northeast knows, once summer ends, the weather takes a quick turn – making autumn boating an often ‘chilling’ pastime! That gave me an idea…create a rugged but beautiful blanket that doubles as a fashionable wrap, offering boaters luxurious warmth and protection from the elements.” The result? The launch of Pretty Rugged Gear blankets.
The perfect Hamptons accessory for boating, home and beach BBQ’s, Pretty Rugged Blankets are quality crafted with plush faux fur and weatherproof RuggedTex® fabric. The blanket backing and zippered pocket are constructed of 100% waterproof, windproof, spillproof RuggedTex® fabric. The faux fur side is not waterproof; but the blanket backing will protect the fur (and you!) from the elements.
Pretty Rugged Blankets also make the perfect housewarming gift and have a developed a cult following of active, sophisticated clients from Lake George to Aspen, from Nova Scotia to St. Moritz.
The Pretty Rugged Blanket is an ample 50” x 70” (about 4 ft. x 6 ft.) perfect for sharing.
