Introducing the Wallace & Sewell Premium Merino Lambswool Block blanket...
We've been dreaming of snuggling up in these Block blankets for a while now and they do not disappoint! Embodying all the Civil Dawn Studio values of quality material, dedicated craftsmanship, sustainability and a quirky modernist appeal.
Inspired by the abstract paintings of the Korean artist Chung Eun Mo, Harriet and Emma have composed these graphic designs, featuring an exquisite checkerboard of juxtaposed blocks and striking hues.
UK-based British design studio, Wallace Sewell, was established by Harriet Wallace-Jones and Emma Sewell after graduating from the Royal College of Art. Working from London and Dorset, this progressive studio pioneers excellence and originality within their woven products.
Combining innovation with practical solutions, Wallace Sewell are known for their use of colour, structure and yarn in surprising geometric formats. Inspired by paintings, they create individual contemporary fabrics with strikingly bold, asymmetric blocks and stripes of varying scales, which bring together a plethora of elements within one piece.
Strongly influenced by the Bauhaus for its aesthetic and design ideology, Wallace Sewell strive to unite craft and manufacturing, embracing traditional techniques. The initial design process begins on handlooms in the London and Dorset studios, utilising merino lambswool sourced from Australia and South Africa. Production then takes place in a family-run mill, fusing tradition with state of the art technology, allowing flexibility in order to weave a variety of qualities from small batches to larger quantities. Fabric is then washed and pressed at the finishers to give the cloth a luxurious handle. Since Wallace Sewell’s inception, Emma and Harriet are proud to have always worked in the UK, embracing the British Textile Industry for its wealth of expertise and production excellence. We are proud to welcome them to Civil Dawn Studio.
