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
For a traditional look to suit the feel of this quilt, we’d suggest making your bed with first a fitted sheet, then a set of four pillows. Follow that with a top sheet tucked in to the bottom two thirds of the bed. Lay your Edie quilt over the top, folding it back in front of the pillows, then fold the top sheet back over that. In winter, you could sandwich a duvet between the layers or drape a blanket at the end. Finish with the matching Edie cushions propped in front of your pillows.
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. As well as being a signature style of Provence (where sections are also stuffed to create a raised design), parts of Northern England and Wales were also known for their whole cloth quilts.

Taking care of Edie
You can machine wash Edie, 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.
The joy of sitting in
Ways to rekindle the joy of an evening in, from the practical (choosing the perfect seat), to the fun (setting up a home cinema) to the emotive (why ‘hygge’ is still relevant).
