  • Product Details

    A vintage 19th century narrow loom Welsh blanket by Tom of Holland repaired using Shetland wool with a variety of techniques. Narrow loom blankets are made of two strips of fabric, stitched together. Channeling Tom's style of visible mending, the intention of his work is to keep the history of the piece. Each repair is done depending on the unique signs of wear seen on the blanket, making it entirely unique.

    Included is a serial number, recorded in Tom of Holland’s Visible Mending Programme Log Book.

    About Tom of Holland

    Tom van Deijnen from Holland is a self-taught textiles practitioner based in Brighton. Tom has a deep understanding of fabrics and their characteristics and traditional techniques used in mending them. Working primarily with wool, he favours the old and imperfect over the brand new, as it brings to light the relationship between garment and wearer that has developed over time, creating a piece of clothing that is as unique as the history that created it.
