Winter Warmth

Winter Warmth With Our New Moroccan Pom Pom Blankets

The nights are drawing in and there is a distinct nip in the air so what better time to launch our new collection of Moroccan Pom Pom Blankets.

 

 

Maud-interiors-Natural-Pom-Pom-Blanket

Perfect for keeping warm on chilly nights, these blankets have been hand woven on traditional looms especially for Maud interiors in a town near Marrakesh in Morocco.  Hand woven using techniques passed down from father to son over generations, these thick woollen blankets were originally designed to keep out the cold in the High Atlas mountains.  They have been given a contemporary twist with the addition of large coloured pom poms at the head and foot of the blanket and look stylish over a duvet or as a throw over a sofa or chair.

 

The blankets are available in two sizes: 200cm x 300cm, which is suitable for a single bed or throw and 240cm x 300cm for a double bed.  They are available in five colour ways, natural shown above, natural and black shown below, multicolour stripes, natural and black (thin stripes with black pom poms) and natural and grey stripes.  Click here to see the collection.  We have a few blankets available now, the remainder are being hand woven and are due mid October.  To pre-order a blanket email info@maudinteriors.com.

Maid in Africa, Quirky, African Cushions

There’s a story behind all of the products featured in our launch collection and today I thought I would write about our fabulous, funky, hand printed and hand painted African cushions from Maid in Africa, which I discovered and fell in love with whilst on a wonderful road trip through Nambia seven years ago.

The design duo behind the range, Micha and Andrew Weir,  were inspired to create Maid in Africa in 2006 to generate extra work for Priscilla, a young mother who had been diagnosed HIV positive and had lost her housekeeping job.  As she became weaker she wanted to be productive and so combining their creative knowledge with their ability to screen print, Maid in Africa was born. Sadly Priscilla has since passed away but the company continues to employ out of work domestic workers.

Like all the products in the Maud interiors collection, the Maid in Africa cushions are handmade.  Each cushion, detailing exotic flora and fauna from southern African life and well known brands, like Get Rich and Lucky Strike, is hand printed in black onto white cotton and then individually hand painted so no two cushions are alike.   The cushions are backed with a mix of traditional African prints and come with a plump duck feather inner pad.

There are three different styles in the collection:

In Africa there is a saying “What you cannot carry on your head you can most probably live without.”

Our one-of-a-kind, African cushions, from Maid in Africa, are ideal for injecting some colour into a room or  sprucing up a tired sofa or chair.  Use them individually to create a focal point  or  mix and match them to create an eye-popping riot of colours and imagery.
