When Zita found the colorful, checkered blankets of an old pioneer camp in a place selling retro antiques, she was unable to leave them there: the idea of ​​a blanket jacket was born and molded by tailor János Deák. This jacket is spectacular and captivating with wonderful colors and patterns while recalling the colorful memories of the past. Due to the special use of materials, this piece is only available in a limited number. The zero waste tailoring solution was therefore important, as only a few blankets were available, from which we wanted to get the maximum number of coats by combining different patterns. No two pieces are the same.

"We have been experimenting with the recycling of various textiles at Printa for 14 years, sometimes from unexpected sources, using upcycling techniques.

The Association of Hungarian Pioneers was founded in 1945, while the first section of the Pioneer Railway, the Széchenyi-hegy Children's Railway, was opened in 1948. Here, children dressed in railway uniforms welcomed the travelers, who were among the best students, and the triple grade was already an exclusionary reason.
Communist ideological education, sports, hiking, playful competitions, swimming, and learning and singing movement songs. Prior to the change of regime, almost all students were required to join the pioneering movement: 2-4. classmates were small drummers, while the older ones were pioneers.

"The fact that the blankets come from pioneer camps has moved old memories in me, as I was a pioneer in Yugoslavia during the 1980s," Zita recalls.

The blanket jacket commemorates the red and blue ties, the pioneering whistle, the youth and the whole camp atmosphere. To complete the nostalgic experience, we have also selected photos from the Fortepan collection so we can recall our childhood moments together.
