The Bristol Blanket design is inspired by Bristol’s colourful houses, which brightened up the daily walks of textile artist Angie Parker during lock down in the Spring.
The blanket is woven in partnership with Bristol Weaving Mill. A renowned micro mill in the heart of Bristol which specialises in innovative design.
The optimistic colours in this sumptuous 100% lambswool blanket have been carefully selected to lift your spirits and bring joy and warmth to your home.
The design reflects the connections with our neighbours and local community, which for many were strengthened during lock down. As an artist, Angie set out to design a collection that echoed the special bonds that formed from the shared experiences, in the hope that we can reinforce and build on them in the future
The blanket forms part of a capsule collection of new designs woven by Angie in her Bristol studio.
For every blanket sold, 10% of the profit will go to MIND– the mental health charity.
The blanket is woven from 100% lambswool. Size: 190x140cm. RRP £295.00. Available at www.angieparkertextiles.com.
