The Space Above the Ground Quilted Blanket
Our new super soft organic cotton The Space Above the Ground Quilted Blanket is designed to inspire dreams of soaring high in a starlit sky. The collection is a love song to the air around us and all the creatures that inhabit it, from pollinating moths, to rhinoceros beetles and rare migratory birds.
The reversible hand illustrated blanket takes families on a journey from day to night. On one side of the design, three children can be glimpsed among the large branches of an old ash tree, finding unfamiliar faces in the cloud formations and spotting birds. Turning over your bedding at night, giant moth air balloons carrying children rise up in a star lit cosmos. The caterpillars have transformed into incredible regal moths and a pair of trumpeting bees guard the magic pink sap of the ash tree.
You can choose for your quilt to be accompanied by a special, illustrated storybook that brings to life the exciting adventures of the three children and all the creatures of The Space Above the Ground. The book also introduces the fascinating themes of the collection to children, from the stars up high to the ecosystems of insect pollinators and the awe inspiring journeys of migratory birds.
Our luxurious quilts make a perfect gift for a newborn in the cot size, used as a playmat and as they grow into a toddler, enjoyed as a beautifully soft blanket. The single size is perfect for kids rooms, sofas and even the great outdoors.
