In 2020 I created The Bristol Blanket in response to the daily walks I had around Bristol’s colourful houses with my family during the first lockdown. This was also to raise money for MIND – the mental health charity.
If you’re familiar with my home city of Bristol, you might have noticed that the inspiring painted houses overlooking the harbour frequently get a makeover. If you’re not, here’s a photo from a recent harbourside walk. Spot the new additions in luscious ochre and grey.
This gave me the idea to subtly alter the design and the shades I’ve used the Bristol Blanket. The news additions to the harbourside view, plus the fact that the weaving technique which I use to create the blocks of colour for the blanket is called Summer and Winter, made the new micro-collection an obvious choice.
Now there are three fabulous options for you to choose from this season; Original, SUMMER (left), and WINTER (right).
EARLYBIRD DISCOUNT ON NEW EDITIONS
The official launch of these new colours is Spring 2022.
But if you like being ahead of the pack I’m offering an early-bird discount. Simply select SUMMER or WINTER from my online shop. Then use the code EARLYBIRD22 to receive a whopping 20% off your blanket. They’re available for immediate posting so will be with you in a matter of days.
The blankets are a warming addition to any bedroom or sofa. And they are just the thing to snuggle up with if you’re trying to turn your heating thermostat down a notch or two.
Lots of the recipients have fed back that they feel they were sent a soothing, cosy hug through the post, so why not send the gift of warmth and joy to someone special.
