Last year was the 150th anniversary of Sanderson and we featured many of the products produced as part of their celebration, including the range of cushions produced using some of their textile designs. Their range has also expanded beyond this, to include designs based on ephemera in the Sanderson archive, such as this skier cushion.
The cushion is based on an invite to an early Sanderson bash and also features an appealing illustration showing a skier against a wintery background. There's no year given on the invite but it looks like it dates right back to the early days of the company. If you like this, there's also another design based on an Edwardian design for the company.
Made from linen, the cushion costs £35.

We actually featured the Adidas Carl Gruber range as far back as 2006, which is roughly when this reissue of the Adidas Carl Gruber Moon Boots hit the shelves. Sought after then, they're equally collectable now – and there's a pair on eBay if you are off skiing anytime soon and want to make an impression.
The range, in conjunction with the Austrian ski instructor Gruber, was big news in the 70s, with an updated range of old and new designs returning five or so years back. The Moon Boots were pure 70s excess, especially in the rainbow colour option.
This pair is a UK size 8, still in the box with tags and selling originally for £129.99. Right now, this pair is yours for £79.99 on a 'Buy It Now'.

Big thanks to Andrew for the tip off!
Here is something just a little different for winter wear – the Ellesse 1970s replica ski jacket.
Admittedly more suitable for a skiing break (that’s what it was originally designed for), it should be pretty useful if winter kicks in hard again this year too. A limited edition collector’s piece, the jacket is an exact archive replica, with a ‘puffer’ style, ribbed collar, waist and cuffs, side pockets, warm padded insulation and of course, some eye-catching ’70s style.
If you want one, you can grab one online for £249.
