Ah, Bronte by Moon
I think my passion for supporting British manufacturing stems from my former career in menswear, meeting designers, mill owners and craftspeople who were all fighting to keep manufacturing alive in Great Britain.
One such brand is Abraham Moon & Sons – a Yorkshire based woollen mill with a 200-year old plus heritage.
Producing luxurious 100% wool fabrics for the interior design and clothing industry, design development and sourcing of raw wool, followed by dyeing, blending, carding, yarn spinning, warping, weaving and finished with quality control checks to create the final product, are carried out to the highest of standards.
In 2009, Moon expanded its product offer into home accessories, producing luxury soft furnishings under the name Bronte by Moon.
Today I wanted to share part of the Bronte by Moon collection, in the shape of two new woven padded cushions and a beautiful Merino Lambswool throw – loved by Audrey Hepburn the cat, no less.

As I also have an ottoman, I wanted a throw to break the space up and add a little interest. The Athens Check in grey Merino Lambswool was perfect for this, with its reversible contrasting print.
A contemporary take on a tortoiseshell print, the ever-so-slightly raised squares of colour are delicately segmented by thin white stripes.
Updating your soft furnishings is one of the quickest and inexpensive ways you can change your living room décor for the winter months. Just by adding these cushions and a throw, in complementing prints, it’s added a warm, tactile finish to my space and I enjoy nothing better than wrapping myself up in the throw – if Audrey allows me – to watch a good old Netflix binge and drink a caramel hot chocolate with whipped cream.
