Britpop? Yes, and finely woven

Flannels, herringbone- and tartans-weaves are usually associated with gentlemans clothing from Great Britain. Especially in the wintertime, fabrics inspired by the above and transformed for interior-use, create a warm and cosy atmosphere and can whistle away November-blues. Look at trendy colourways such as sage, aubergine or mustard combined with the more classic grey? Which, we have learned, comes in many more than fifty shades. When used for cushions, throws or even upholstery on sofas, chairs or poufs, they make a difference, like singing an old tune with quite a few new notes…

Cosy throw blanket

Putting together patches of fabric and creating something new is a craft, better yet an art: PatchArt as practised by Gesine Hennings in Hamburg, Germany.
See this example of cuddly soft mohair, sewn in a grit and accented with scraps of a vintage tie. A cosy throw blanket for an afternoon nap.
Just the right piece to have in November…
