ABOUT US

THE STORY OF THE BRITISH BLANKET COMPANY... SO FAR


BRITISH MADE WITH LOVE

We embrace Britain's long weaving heritage to bring you beautiful and contemporary throws for your home. Our blankets and picnic rugs are woven at traditional mills in the British Isles. The last of their kind, they have been weaving the finest quality wool cloth for generations.

By sharing our passion for British design and craftsmanship, you help ensure this precious local industry continues to thrive.


WE'RE PROUD TO  WEAVE ALL OUR BLANKETS IN BRITAIN AND IRELAND


OUR STORY

We're Bethan and Joe, the brother and sister team behind The British Blanket Company. Since 2015 we've lovingly curated the best selection of British-made wool throws available online. In 2019 we were proud to win 'Family Business of the Year' at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.

We live and work in historic Bristol where, legend has it, Flemish weaver Thomas Blanquette produced the first 'blankets' in the 14th century.


THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR FAMILY BUSINESS, IT MEANS THE WORLD TO US!


NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL WOOL

Wool really is the most amazing natural material. We love that wool is warm and cosy but, did you know, it's also one of the strongest and most flexible fibres on earth? Not to mention it's hypoallergenic, temperature-regulating, odour-resistant, breathable, non-toxic and biodegradable too.

These are the reasons we love weaving blankets from pure wool.


WE'RE A MEMBER OF THE CAMPAIGN FOR WOOL, SUPPORTED BY HRH THE PRINCE OF WALES
