Lambswool from Merino is one highest quality wools available on the market offering great décor, warmth, and comfort to any room it is placed into. Merino combines the Sussex countryside with the retro hipster feel of Brighton to create the brilliant Chalk’s cushions and double sided throws that are going to appeal to city and country folks alike.
One of the reasons for the overall appeal is the fact that the designs are all contemperory whereas the weaving techniques used are all very traditional. Those interested in the unique blend of cultures will want to head to www.chalkwovens.com where the entire collection is available. Kerry Stokes, the designer behind the innovative range, has plenty of experience in the fashion industry as a textiles lecturer at both Brighton University and Central St. Martin’s. Each item is first started on a handloom at which point the designs are carefully woven and then sent to Wales where they are completed.
Merino lambswool is the most luxurious wool on the market, bringing warmth, comfort and good looks to any room. Chalk offers six designs: ‘Squircle’, ‘Squircle Outline’, ‘Beacon’ and ‘Prism are classic geometric designs with contemporary appeal; whilst ‘Fern’ and ‘Reeds’ echo the Sussex Downs with their subtle gradations of colour, light and shade. The colour palette reflects all seasons, ranging from Autumnal orange and copper to cool fern, jade and turquoise. Purple and grey shades lend a moody, ultra-modern edge to the collection.
All Chalk fabrics are lambswool double-cloth, soft, yet durable, modern yet woven using traditional weaving methods.
