I fell in love with this lovely large Ice Cream Stripe Throw as soon as I saw it and it was this throw that led me to Atlantic Blankets and to asking them if I could stock their designs. It’s so colourful and fun and cheers me up just looking at it! I’ve never seen anything like it and that was what inspired husband and wife team Gemma & Alastair to start their company back in 2007 – they couldn’t find blankets they loved that would comfort and add warmth and sunshine to a home, so they designed their own! The designs are created in their Cornwall home and then woven in British mills.
This throw is a classic herringbone weave, which comes alive with ice cream colours and a modern grey twist. It brightens up any space and is great for your home, your car or campervan as well as making a lovely gift for someone special!
Care: Dry clean or cold wash at 30 degrees. Must dry flat. Do not tumble dry.
Atlantic Blankets is husband and wife team Gemma and Alastair who live in Perranporth, Cornwall. The idea was born in 2007 when in need of a bright and soft blanket that possessed magical curative powers of cosiness to comfort their little girl who had chicken pox. They couldn’t find anything, so they created them.
Inspired by their Cornish surroundings and the amazing coastline of the British Isles, they create beautiful woven treats in a range of lovely bright and natural colours. Their collection mixes nautical contemporary design and colour, with traditional weaving methods and natural fabrics. I was drawn to their beautiful ice-cream stripe wool throw initially and then found it hard not to want everything in the collection! I also love the personal touch of the handpicked shells on each one that their children have collected from the nearby beaches! I met Alistair to touch and feel the blankets in person to be sure that they were what I was after for These Two Hands as I try to meet all the makers that I feature and they were perfect!
