Lolium Throw (Blue)

Bristol Weaving Mill
£360
Woven in the South West of England, Bristol Weaving Mill's Lolium Throw (Blue) has been made from a combination of natural fibres resulting in a unique distressed texture, evoking rustic comfort.

The boucle, mohair, wool and hemp yarns used to craft this piece were sourced from Italy. Each colourway was custom dyed for The New Craftsmen, ensuring the exclusivity of the range. Bristol Weaving Mill's then sampled each design on a wooden hand-weaving loom. Over three rounds of sampling, the final product was defined and transferred for production to the antique production weaving loom, using the punch card system. After weaving, the throws were hand-finished, and gently hand-washed before the tassels were brushed out by hand and trimmed to size.
