My Chappywrap Collection is Here!

My Chappywrap Collection

I am so excited: today is the day, my collection with Chappywrap is finally here! I say “finally” as I looked back on old emails and we started working on this in August of 2020. And I am SO happy with the final product – they make me happy. I wanted it to be joy-inducing, bold, and bright… but classic enough to stand the test of time and not be too niche or crazy. This collection was designed with one thought in mind: sparking joy via bold, happy colors, and summer memories. I drew inspiration from my favorite places (particularly my childhood home of Dennis, Massachusetts  on Cape Cod). 

When we started working on the collaboration, the pandemic was in full swing. I think we were starting to go back to restaurants (outdoors) but I was pretty anxious and felt sad a lot. I was craving happy things and the nostalgia of home. Nothing is better than curling up with my Chappy and a good book at the end of the day, and I was delighted to have the opportunity to put my personal stamp on a collection of blankets with bold stripes, fun colors, and (slightly unexpected!) contrasting bindings.

These blankets will be just as at home on your couch curling up with a book or your latest Netflix binge as they will be picnicking at the park, or lounging on the beach.

The Howes Street

Nothing is more classic than blue and white stripes, and we added a fiesty pop of red! This blanket is named after my favorite beach on the Cape, Howes Street Beach. It’s the residents’ beach right next to Corporation Beach (in Dennis, my hometown) and is still one of my favorite beaches in the world. The house I grew up in was about a mile away so from this beach and I have so many happy memories from my childhood and teenage years… from building sand castles and playing in the waves to bonfires and parties once I got a little bit older.

Color can be so powerful. During quarantine I read Joyful, by Ingrid Fetell Lee. (I talk about this book constantly, some of you are probably tired of me! I wrote a review of the book here, if you’re interested in learning more).

The book is about the power of ordinary things to create extraordinary happiness. There’s a whole chapter about the power of color and the science behind how and why bright colors can bring us joy and I found myself nodding my head in agreement as I read (all the while thinking about this collection!). A pop of color, an unexpected contrasting binding… a bright stripe, a splash of orange in an otherwise neutral home… these things give us more energy, revitalize us, and give us a feeling of delight. Don’t be afraid of color – embrace it!!!

The Cabana

I had to include a forest green stripe here as it’s my favorite color. This almost feels a little bit more Beverly Hills Hotel (another favorite place!) but the royal blue binding is a nod to my New England roots. The Chappy team describes it as a “Cape-to-Côte d’Azur cosmopolitan vibe,” which I just love. When we did our influencer gifting, we let each person choose their favorite blanket and this one was far and away the most popular!

Thxe Hot Dog

This blanket is in my opinion, the most playful of the bunch. The combo of bright red and pale yellow is such a good one. It is inspired by backyard grilling and picnics, and it’s just pure FUN. The colors make me think of a hot dog and mustard, the perfect summer treat.

The Creamsicle

Growing up on Cape Cod, the unofficial drink of summer was the orange freeze! (Ideally from Captain Frosty’s in Dennis, about a mile down the road from where I grew up).  The creamsicle blanket is inspired by my favorite creamy drink… I still have one every time I go back. I will tell you, when we put together the initial blanket concepts I was sure that The Cabana would be my favorite – and I do absolutely love it… but this one ended up being my number one favorite. It’s just so, so happy!

  11. Sandra says 1.12.22

    Congrats Grace! Are these more like blankets or towels? I can’t tell…can they get wet? Thanks!

    • grace at the stripe says 1.12.22

      Hi Sandra!
      They’re blankets.Think of fleece but the softest, thickest, highest quality fleece imaginable. Like a cloud, haha! I wouldn’t get them wet but they’re fine if you do get them wet (totally machine washable and dryer-friendly too!).

  12. Heather says 1.12.22

    Warmly,
