SIZEThis blanket is our largest size, which is approximately 213cm x 157cm (84”x62”). The exact dimensions of each design might vary slightly from the above, due to the difference in the density of weave of different colours. This size is wonderful as a decorative bed throw, which laid sideways will cover the main part of a queen or king side bed, excluding the pillows. Arcana blankets are, in fact, woven soft tapestries, making them highly versatile. They can be used as a decorative throw, as tapestry art hung as the wall, or even as a picnic blanket. As they are machine washable, you can be confident you can keep them looking glorious for years to come. And because they are so finely woven, they are also reversible, showing the design in different complementary colours on the back. CAREYou can hand wash or machine wash the blanket in cold water on a delicate cycle using a mild detergent, so you don’t need to worry about loving it and taking it everywhere. Do not bleach. Line dry or machine dry on cool cycle only.WHAT THEY ARE MADE FROMOur blankets are woven from 75% recycled cotton, 20% spun cotton and 5% polyester that is required in the recycled cotton portion to retain its strength. All the colours you see are woven from just six colours of threads, which can be seen in the 1.5 inch fringing on the edge. Two edges show the colours, two show black and white threads. Each soft tapestry blanket contains over 8 miles of yarn. Because the blankets are woven, every one is reversible, showing different colours on the back.From cosying up with a book to lying on the beach, you can use your blanket everywhere at any time of year, as the lightweight nature of the fabric allows amazing versatility.Natural and woven fabrics and beautiful and unlike anything else. Due to their nature some minor imperfections may be present but we think this only adds to their charm. Our blankets are woven with love by a small family business in North Carolina.

FLAX BOURTON, Somerset

Welcome, I am Ria. I’m enthralled by the natural world, and believe a connection with nature leads to greater balance in all areas of our lives. With previous careers in science and photography, I knew I wanted to create art with a story, one that encouraged a personal connection to nature in the everyday - a journey in marrying beauty with purpose.

This is Arcana: a marriage of art and ecology, woven into heirloom textiles for you to treasure and transform your home.
