Discovering Welsh Blankets (Carthen)

Using the Welsh blanket to keep warm on a spring evening

Davies & Co

Traditional Welsh Tapestry Blanket (Carthen)

Welsh wool and woollen products are famous throughout the world for their quality and rich cultural heritage.

Milling, weaving and spinning were much sought after. Welsh wool fabrics were exported across the globe. However, in recent years the industry has declined and today, only a few authentic working mills survive. Welsh Tapestry fabrics, both old and new, are synonymous with high quality and durability.

Davies & Co supports family-run Welsh woollen mill industries and plays its part in keeping these vital traditional crafts that are under threat from mass production, alive.

We work closely with a number of local mills and have created a selection of new modern colourways using the authentic Caernarfon Welsh Tapestry pattern.  Traditional in form, but contemporary in their expression of colour and hues, they reflect the rich history of our community; its buildings and its landscape.

Milled in Wales using traditional authentic machinery

Our inspiration for our #welshblankets #Carthen comes from the beautiful Welsh surroundings, with many to choose from such as #Carmarthenshire Welsh Blanket #Myddfai Welsh blanket #cambrianmountains and #breconbeacons welsh blankets to name but a few.

The many of the colour-ways are subtle taupes, greys, greens, blues and neutral tones reflect the landscape as it changes through the seasons.

These hand-made fabrics have been thoughtfully designed as dual-sided; one side offering a richer, more detailed colourway, the other, lighter and more neutral. These exquisitely crafted tapestries will enhance any home – traditional or contemporary.

We are proud to have collaborated with Welsh Mills and with this new range of woollen tapestry fabrics we hope that you will appreciate the great skill of the weavers and our love and support Wales, our community and Welsh woollen products.
