Forest Collection: 'Caterpillar' Throw
The 'Caterpillar' lampshade was inspired by the movement of caterpillars. Using merino and blue-faced leicester wool roving offcuts from our 'Tendril' throws that would otherwise have gone to waste, we have re-purposed these materials in a creative pattern that forms an integral part of our Forest collection. Featuring a soft yet lightweight handle, this throw is perfect for cosying up on the sofa or draping across your bed on cold winter nights.
This throw forms part of our Forest Collection, which combines the creaminess of Merino wool roving with the fibrous Blue-Faced Leicester to create a unique collection of highly-textured, handwoven interior products. Inspired by walks through British forests, these textured throws, cushions and lampshades tell stories of caterpillars crawling through the forest, plants spiralling from the forest floor and their colours, textures and patterns.
Working with long lengths of wool roving, each row in the design is hand-manipulated to create a unique pattern and features a unique blend of colours and fibres not found elsewhere. This process reflects our commitment to craftsmanship and time-honoured weaving traditions by choosing designs that cannot be mill-woven.
We also believe in sourcing all our materials from within the UK to minimise our carbon footprint and use natural fibres as we aim to cultivate an increasingly sustainable practice.
