We've been saving the small pieces left over from making the SARTORIA winter wool collection for the last few years....for this! This is an example of a true Upcycling design cycle, where the 'waste' materials have a purpose and are not simply discarded. We are so happy to be achieving this closed-loop cycle!
Based on a traditional Amish Quilt design, the triangle pattern front is made from upcycled cashmere and merino wool pieces cut by hand and coverstitched together. The colours of the front are chosen to correspond to the vintage wool blanket used to back the quilt. Front and back blankets are quilted together by machine straight stitch.
The SUPERNUMERARY RAINBOW quilt features two blue stripes at top and bottom and the original blanket label on the back.
