How I fell in love with beautiful blankets

I’ve always loved texture, materials, and design. And who doesn’t love a soft, snuggly blanket?

When I lived and worked in London, pre-children, I studied Interior Design at the KLC School of Design at Chelsea Harbour and had a particular love for home accessories and dressing the interior space. Ever since, I have wanted to create beautiful blankets and throws that would look gorgeous in any home, make you feel amazing, and be kept for years to come as a special heirloom.

But of course, blankets are everywhere. You can buy blankets at just about any department store or online, but I set out to create special, natural, high-quality blankets that would last a lifetime because memories are so important to me.

Think of treasuring your family picnic blanket for decades and even handing it down to your children. And when it’s a quality blanket, it can look new for a lifetime with proper care. [link to care]

Picture a loved family blanket that has always been there for years of movie nights, living room picnics, evening snuggles, and long, cosy meals with friends. And not only is this trusty blanket a constant companion during special family moments, but it makes your space look beautiful and inviting as well!

That’s why a dot + tom blanket is a one-of-a-kind investment that will serve you for a lifetime.

I personally use these blankets all the time. This is difficult because I have favourite blankets for different occasions!

The cashmere home throws are so soft, so beautiful and I’ll always grab one for the sofa.

However, during the spring and summer as we move into spending more of our time outside I can’t get enough of our picnic rugs and wool blankets, which are the perfect al fresco accessory. I also love to dress up plain garden furniture with blankets for a pop of colour!

I’m especially proud of our cashmere children’s blankets with their gorgeous patterns and unbeatable softness. My boys can’t get enough of them! My six-year-old son is a mega-fan of his ‘monkey’ cashmere blanket and won’t sleep without it. 

I love starting the design process for a new blanket or hearing stories from happy customers about how their families are in love with our products. 

Both creating and using these pieces brings me so much joy! I hope they bring more beauty, softness, and happiness into your life as well.
