Our Welsh tapestry Collection is named ‘Hiraeth’ and nothing says Hiraeth more than an iconic Welsh tapestry blanket, throw or cushion. Hiraeth is a Welsh concept of longing for home, which can be loosely translated as 'nostalgia', or, more commonly, 'homesickness'. Many claim 'hiraeth' is a word which cannot be translated, meaning more than solely "missing something" or "missing home." This Hiraeth Collection of the iconic Welsh Tapestry Blankets remains one of our customers favourites.
A stunning addition to any home, traditional or contemporary. Using pure new wool on a 1930's Dobbcross loom, each warp is threaded through the heddles by hand. The ‘double weave’ design produces reversible blankets that are practical, hard-wearing and genuinely warm. Our range of tapestry cushions complement each of these beautiful Welsh tapestry blankets
We have an expanded our range of tapestry blankets in various sizes and colours and today announce the introducing of our Portmeirion blanket in Cornflower Blue which is currently available in King, double and single sized bedspreads.

Just received my red Welsh Tapestry blanket and I couldn't be more thrilled. The blanket is beautiful, service was excellent and shipping to the US was reasonable and efficient. Karen went out of her way to help me get exactly what I wanted. A very happy customer!

He is possibly one of the greatest Welshmen of all time if not the greatest. His name is still remembered and revered today.
