Oblique Blanket | DamsonRegular price
Woven at a 300 year old mill in Sudbury, Essex. We have the utmost respect for their approach to making fabrics, their knowledge and experience and work closely with their team to develop our fabrics. We use 100% hand picked Egyptian cotton that meets industry regulations for environmental safety, ethical production and the use of non – harmful chemicals. We blend the cotton with a Viscose flax, which stems from natural fibres and is processed in order to meet the qualities and abrasion required to satisfy European industry standards for both manufacture and use.
This collection was developed through the dissection and reduction of blocks of text. Interested in how non-verbal communication is evolving and questioning the importance of physical paper letters, the studio took influence from the mail art movement in Berlin in the early 1970’s. Visually, this wallpaper represents a web of information that has evolved into the interweaving of lines in irregular blocks which gently touch and overlap. Explored through print and woven cloth, the oblique collection is a screen-printed wallpaper on wide width non-woven paper and a collection of woven fabrics.
Our products are made locally to us in South East London in small batches so as much as we can, we reduce the movement of our items and the possibility of generating unnecessary energy and material waste.
