Hand-painted Velvet Throw in Terra Rose
Chic and monochromatic, Terra Rose celebrates rust and terracotta hues and features details exquisitely rendered in metallic bronze thread.
Based on a section of a traditional Chinoiserie scenic, which we have hand-painted into velvet, these one-of-a-kind pieces blur the lines between soft furnishings and fine art.
To paint directly onto velvet, a hugely absorbent material, takes an incredible amount of control: the colours bleeding and flowing into each other seemingly with a mind of their own. Only a virtuoso would be mad enough to attempt it. Happily, our artists – exponents of the free and spontaneous “unconscious” painting style – are masters of the craft.
Each throw is wadded and then backed with a joyously tactile, ecologically friendly faux cashmere. They are a joy to behold (and indeed hold).
