The Upcycled Bazaar collection tookinspiration from the middle east. Traditionally Bazaars are open-air marketplacesandconsidered the beating heart of the city. We wanted to create a range of blankets that are bursting with the beautiful jewel tone colours and could be used indoors or outdoors.
The Amethyst & Ruby Bazaar blankets are a heavy-weight blankets great for the colder months. Each blanket has been finished with a whipstitch on all 4 sides, available in two sizes. Our Upcycled Blankets are made of 50% wool and 50% reclaimed manmade fibre. The benefits of this are an easy care product that will stand a variety of uses and simply be put in the washing machine if it becomes well soiled.
Our Upcycled range of blankets and throws are made from a variety of recycled or reclaimed wool, cotton and manmade fibre. Due to the nature of the reclaiming process, all products take on a slightly varied mix depending on the colour variation.
Turning landfill into luxury, a recent drop in global demand for high fashion couture has seen an excess supply of quality yarns. Aligned with the mill’s core principles of creating sustainable products, Waverley Mills has salvaged over 60 tonnes (60,000 kgs!) of mixed yarn that would have ended up in landfill and turned it into something magical.
