Hayward Blanket | Aubergine
Woven at a 300 year old mill in Sudbury, Essex. We have the utmost respect for their approach to making fabrics, their knowledge and experience and work closely with their team to develop our fabrics. We use 100% hand picked Egyptian cotton that meets industry regulations for environmental safety, ethical production and the use of non – harmful chemicals. We blend the cotton with a Viscose flax, which stems from natural fibres and is processed in order to meet the qualities and abrasion required to satisfy European industry standards for both manufacture and use.
The Hayward Gallery in London inspired both the design language and the cloth structure of this woven fabric. Interested in the exposure of a built or constructed material, like the wooden panel imprints on the concrete walls of the gallery, has always intrigued us and opened up conversations around making, craft and value. All of which has informed the graphic, grid-like composition of this fabric, softened by structural detail and occasional curves.
Our products are made locally to us in South East London in small batches so as much as we can, we reduce the movement of our items and the possibility of generating unnecessary energy and material waste.
