Kōnam Throw Quilt

Our modernist-inspired patchwork quilt collection balances bold, geometric lines with the warmth and texture of natural dyes and handloom cotton.

Inspired by brutalist architectural forms and the interaction of light and shadow, the Kōnam is both graphic and calming. Though evocative of light reflecting on concrete, the colour palette is taken directly from nature and is soft and soothing to the eye.

 

The Kōnam is the perfect size to curl up with on the sofa or to use as an extra layer in bed, on chillier nights. It’s filled with a thin layer of cotton batting, making it warm but lightweight enough to use in warmer seasons.

 

We believe in expressing the natural character of a material and celebrating the means of its construction. Irregularities or variations in print, colour, weave and texture are subtle reminders that your product has been made by hand and is one of a kind.

Naturally Dyed Handwoven Cotton

Pure cotton cloth made directly from raw cotton. The process involves using small-scale yarn-making units that have been designed to make yarn specifically for handlooms. The yarn is dyed naturally using plant-based dyestuffs, then hand woven into cloth. The lack of heavy and intense industrial processing results in a wonderfully textured fabric that is soft, absorbent and drapes beautifully. 

Weaving1

Handloom Weaving

Handwoven fabrics are soft, durable and breathable – many of these properties are due to the human handling of the yarn during the weaving process. Looms are operated and powered by hand or foot, so no electricity is required to make the cloth, resulting in the process being ecologically sound.

NaturalDyeing

Natural Dyeing

This ancient technique involves obtaining pigment or dye from plants, insects or minerals. The majority of natural dyes come from roots, flowers, berries, seeds, nuts, leaves, and bark. We are drawn to natural dyes because they can produce far richer, more complex shades than synthetic dyes. Colours tend to have great depth and are very soothing to the eye.

Washing

We recommend washing in cold water by hand or on a gentle machine cycle.

Detergent

Wash with a gentle, pH-neutral soap. 

Colour Care

Please note that some natural dyes may bleed during the first few washes, so we recommend washing alone or with similar colours. 

Drying

Air dry flat or line dry, keep out of direct sunlight. Iron when required.
