New Collection: Handmade Throws image

We are delighted to introduce new additions to our collection of throws and bedspreads, handmade in India. Our designer ‘Niki Jones’ has built up a reputation for producing superior quality hand made quilts that are unrivalled in the UK.

The Voile throws explore the most rudimentary and traditional forms of Kantha stitched embroidery. Historically the first hand sewn running stitch, examples of this can be found in ancient civilizations’ all over the world. The hand-made nature of the technique is expressed in it irregular pattern and varied texture. Originally quilts and lightweight throws were made by layering old sari’s and cloth, a means of creating useful household items by reusing and recycling items that would otherwise have become waste.  We have taken this elementary embroidery technique and used it to create our beautifully soft Voile Kantha throws and bedspreads. This archaic technique becomes strikingly modern when simplified to its elementary components and really focuses on celebrating the beauty of the simple hand stitching.

Cotton voile is a lightweight, semi- sheer cotton fabric that gives a very soft handle and feel. When quilted it ruffles to create this intriguing texture. The hand kantha stitching creates entirely unique pieces; no two throws are the same. Available in three exquisite colour-ways and two sizes. This lighter weight quilt adds a new weight to our bed throws collection and is perfect for multi-seasonal use. Filled with 100 % natural cotton filling, giving the finished throws their weight and drape.

In addition to our new Voile Kantha range we are also adding a beautiful new colour to our Velvet quilts and bed throws. A soft contemporary nude pink velvet, sits alongside our Chartreuse, Slate & Oyster colour-ways.

We use a high quality cotton velvet, which absorbs dye creating a deep saturated colour to contrasts with the natural un-dyed linen reverse. Linen is an important fiber that we use across a lot of our collection, as it is one of the most sustainable, durable and environmentally friendly textile fabrics available. Each velvet throw and bedspread is quilted with a stab stich giving the quilts texture and character.

Our distinctive palette and exceptional quality has created a stunning range of throws and bedspreads that are unique to the UK market.
