Blodwen's Heritage Blanket Project Featured In World of Interiors
Blodwen's new textile collection inspired by the discovery of a historical archive of Welsh blanket patterns dating from the 1700's, is featured in the May issue of World of Interiors.
Aicia de Moubray in World of Interiors, comments : "Passionate about the traditional textiles of her home country, Wales, Denise Lewis was thrilled when she unearthed an 18th-century book of Welsh blanket designs. Now, with the help of a new generation of artisans, this founder of on-line crafts company Blodwen has brought the patterns into the 21st century. Weaver William Jones, who drew the original motifs, should be proud." Click here to view the feature.
The Collection is part of the Heritage Blanket Project - a community initiative launched by Blodwen in collaboration with her local textile college and 180 year old mill, designed to celebrate the 'Craft of the Weaver'. It aims to resurrect historical patterns into a range of new and vibrant textiles.
