Yōso Throw Quilt
Our modernist-inspired patchwork quilt collection balances bold, geometric lines with the warmth and texture of natural dyes and handloom cotton.
The Yōso’s asymmetrical composition blends simple forms with a rich and striking colour palette. This depth of colour is achieved by using natural dyes such as indigo and acacia extract.
The Yōso quilt is the perfect size to snuggle up in on a sofa or to have draped over a bed as an additional blanket.
We value honesty in materials and processes. 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.
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.
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.
