Cotton is a perfect material for bedrooms because not only is it soft on the skin, but it’s also naturally breathable and, unlike man-made fibres, won’t trap heat and moisture between you and the textile. We’ve used cotton for both the outer fabric and the filling of this quilt.
There are two sizes of quilt to choose from: double, which will cover an entire double or single duvet (it’ll reach to the floor on the latter) or super-king, which will cover a king or super-king sized duvet. As this quilt is reversible though, you can also choose to have yours folded at the end of the bed, rather than covering the whole thing.
A styling tip or two
As Clementine is a more contemporary style of bedspread, try it with our Edith linen bedding collection. Together, they’ll create a very minimal look full of soft textures. To add more layers to your bed without cluttering the pared-back feel, include one of our long Isabelle bolster cushions or a couple of matching Clementine cushions, and perhaps also a fine-textured throw like Thornton or Delph.
A (very) brief history
Quilts have been around for centuries, used as a way to add warmth as well as artistry to the home, and form a part of many cultures’ heritage. This type of quilt is known as a whole cloth design which, as opposed to patchwork, is made with just one or two pieces of cloth. They’re especially associated with Durham and Wales, although the straight lines of running stitch are more reminiscent of South Asian kantha quilts.
Free for all orders over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
If your order is available now, we’ll deliver it between 3-5 days of your order being placed.
If your order is not available straight away, an estimated date will be indicated above and at checkout. We’ll then get in touch nearer the estimated date to arrange a specific time.
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
You can machine wash Clementine, but we recommend that you do so on a cold wash and a gentle cycle (a hand wash or delicates setting – no more than 20° – is usually the best). You can then either hang it to dry or tumble dry it on low. If you find that it needs ironing, use a warm setting.
