We’ve been weaving at our beloved Yorkshire mill for over 230 years and during this time, bold stripes have become our signature. We are very skilled at weaving crisp, clean lines whether they be blocks of colour or muted, earthy tones.
Historically we have produced the Newmarket throw and this has been woven at our mill for a long time. This traditional racehorse blanket is iconic in the equine world and the rich red, amber and navy stripes are widely recognised. We still weave the Newmarket throw today and it has now become part of our Heritage collection in the Scarlet and Argent range.
We’ve added to this with our Millicent, Winston, Albion and De Lancey throws, each with historical connections. They each have stripes as the basis of their design and the colours have been chosen to reflect the story behind each one.
Bold stripes of colour also make an appearance in our aptly named Mill Stripe range. Combining a traditional design with modern colour ways, these blankets and throws are a beautiful addition to any home, adorning a sofa or bed, and they are also very soft and warm!
Each blanket and cushion set in the Mill Stripe range has a story behind its design too. The Mill Stripe Spring is woven in fresh green and blue with a touch of navy to reflect the private spring that runs directly underneath the mill and provides us with the water we use to make our products. Meadow combines bright yellow, pink and blues to evoke memories of fields filled with flowers and the nautical inspired Classic Navy is a simple and stylish combination of crisp white and navy stripes.
It’s clear that we love stripes and they are part of our heritage, we are delighted that so many of our colourful designs in the Scarlet and Argent range can incorporate them to offer a real mix of old and new!
