Georgia Dant’s outerwear-focussed label Marfa Stance has united with the women of Gee’s Bend, a small community in Alabama, United States known for creating hand-stitched, geometric quilts since the early 20th century. Coinciding with ‘Souls Grown Deep Like the Rivers: Black Artists from the American South’ at London’s Royal Academy (17 March – 18 June 2023), 18 of these quilters have been selected to display and sell their work ‘to provide a blueprint for future income streams’ (the project was aided by non-profit Nest, which supports engagement with artisans from around the world). Products available include reversible quilts, framed mini quilts and wearable art pieces including a quilted Marfa Stance bomber and vest. The collaboration will be available online and in the Royal Academy shop, while the seven reversible quilts will be on view in The Academicians’ Room in The Keeper’s House, Burlington House.

Made in Scotland for over two centuries, historic mill Johnstons of Elgin is known for its wool and cashmere knitted using time-honoured techniques passed through generations. Its range of blankets and throws demonstrate this near-unsurpassed craft with an array of colourful designs in cashmere, merino and lambswool – each made in the brand’s Scottish factories and mills. Designs span herringbone, tartan and reversible colour-block, in various sizes – including miniature sizes for children – promising ‘warmth, softness and colour’. And, for a personalised touch, Johnstons of Elgin also offer a monogram service, allowing up to eight custom characters on all blankets and throws.

A new edition of Byredo’s ‘Alphabeta’ blanket – recognisable for its alphabet print in the brand’s signature stencil font – celebrates the arrival of March Madness, a college basketball tournament in the United States whereby teams vie to be crowned national champions (Ben Gorham, Byredo’s founder and creative director, was a former basketball player). Titled ‘Team Colours’, the four new styles come in bold hues reminiscent of those which come on athletic uniforms and team flags; each is crafted from merino and cashmere with a signature ‘B’ patch in calfskin, tanned in Italy. ‘With the rhythmic visual effect of the alphabet pattern transformed through eye-catching shades, exacting savoir-faire comes redefined with an elated attitude,’ say the brand.

Redduo blankets

‘Loads of Lines’ is a limited-edition collection of blankets from Italian homeware brand Redduo that transforms discarded deadstock fabric into hand-painted works of art. Redduo founders Fabiola Di Virgilio and Andrea Rosso hit upon the idea of creating the fifty ‘art blankets’ during lockdown when wandering the streets of Veneto, which are famously populated by local artisans who have been mastering the art of clay and textile productions since the early 1900s. Hoping to preserve the local craftsmanship, and the generations of knowledge behind it, threatened by decreased business during Covid, Di Virgilio and Rosso commissioned three different tailors to rework discarded wool textiles into quilts. The duo then hand-painted them with eye-catching geometric patterns, making for a one-of-a-kind collection of textile artworks. Writer: Mary Cleary

Enveloping made-in-Scotland blankets have always been a part of British heritage brand Connolly’s collections. The latest additions – arriving for winter 2022 – are designed by Connolly knitwear designer Lorraine Acornley, and arrive in a range of luxurious textures, from sustainably sourced cashmere to the brand’s ‘CB’ emblazoned blanket in a super-soft lambswool blend. ‘We make these blankets at a very special mill on the west coast of Scotland with over 150 years of experience in luxury weaving,’ says Acornley. ‘Each blanket goes through around 30 processes from start to finish, from warping, weaving, milling and finishing and a plethora of other stages and processes in between. The soft Scottish water makes the handle of these blankets exquisite. [They are] the Connolly heirlooms of tomorrow.’ JM

A.P.C.’s quilts, created by Jessica Ogden in collaboration with brand founder Jean Touitou, capture a feeling of ‘beauty in utility’ – a defining maxim of German artists Josef and Anni Albers, who inspired this collection (the name of each blanket pays ode to ‘the rich and singular universe’ of the pair). Their experimental, abstract work combined Bauhaus principles with a lifelong dedication to craft; as such, this collection – across both quilts and cushions – melds humble, homespun technique with bold geometric designs, proving a welcome addition to corners of the home requiring an injection of colour. JM
