Ilsa Tassle Blanket
A delightfully playful blanket for an interior that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Our Ilsa Tassle Blanket is aspirational in its incorporation of experimental design and artisanal techniques. A variety of mediums have been used to produce a blanket that is as stylish as it is flirtatious.
The concept began with reference to traditional African mud cloth. A fresh approach was taken here, with a single cross motif selected and repeated for the front side pattern. To produce this linear print, we chose the time-honoured art of block printing.
What appears to be a simple pattern, actually requires a learned artisan to produce. Performed in the textile capital of India, Jaipur, the process begins with the hand carving of a teak wood block into a pattern repeat - a step that takes great precision and skill. Following this, the dye is mixed by our master of colour until it’s just right. We chose a moody navy colour for this pattern to ensure maximum versatility. The printing can now begin, with the pattern taking shape as our artisan prints one block at a time. This is an intensive process, much like the piecing together of a puzzle, and one that we’re proud to be preserving here at Sage and Clare.
Of course, we’ve haven’t just stopped there! Spots of matching navy embroidery adorn the reverse side of our double-layered Ilsa Blanket, giving you the option of using both sides to full effect. Colourful tassles along both ends form the final embellishments to this blanket, taking you from siesta to fiesta in an instant.
These playful tassles have been developed from our signature stripe fabric found in our new season bedlinen and incorporate all the stunning hues of the season. Made from hand screen printed fabric, the cotton is crafted into strips and spun with navy thread to form the tassles.
Made from a textural, slub cotton with soft-hand feel, our Ilsa blanket is a standout in the collection. We’re sure you’ll never love a blanket as much again!
