The other day during a weekend in London, I came across some welsh blankets at the Labour and Wait shop and had a gorgeous one on my bed at my girlfriend's gorgeous new home in Hampstead. I could´t help to not write about them.
Vintage Welsh tapestries from the 50s, 60s, and 70s along with their contemporary versions, feel both charming and modern, bearing sophisticated color palettes in bright, pastel and neutral tones and deliciously complex geometric patterns.
Many traditional patterns continue to be produced and updated today by the famous Melin Tregwynt or have inspired designers such as Donna Wilson, whose Nos Da Blanket Collection.
The Welsh have been happily weaving their own throws for years now. Something a little different from the Point blanket or Native inspired prints. They are used in blankets, upholstery, pillows, and many other ways.
They are a great touch of colour in decoration and bring coziness into any home. We are totally crazy about them !
