Why an All Seasons TENCEL® Blanket and Bedspread you ask? Let me explain why……..

 

TENCEL® is one extraordinaryfibre! Its an amazingeco-friendly fabric that represents a milestone in the development of environmentally friendly sustainable textiles.

Made from wood pulp harvested from sustainable tree farms, TENCEL®textiles are created using nanotechnology in an award winning close-loop process that recovers or decomposes all solvents and emissions.

When I was pregnant my mum took me to oneof herfavouritehomeware storesto browse for potential baby shower gifts, from her. This is one of the last shopping experiences I had with her so it is imprinted in my mind like itwas yesterday. The shop is sobeautiful and the owner has the most wonderful eye so everything in the shop was and is a keepsake, hence why this shop was one of mum’sfavourites.Mum, being a self-made textiles Queen in her own right, wore a crown filled with an abundance of natural creative talent, experience, knowledge and her eye for detail, workmanship and quality was like no other.

I picked up this small crochet shellcoloured blanket and held it tightly, like it already belonged to me. That’s how I felt.Ihad a connection to the piece upon picking it up and holding it.Mum saidthat is divine, can I get you that?

The whole process of preparing for the arrival of my first child was nerve wracking and I felt like I had no idea what I needed. One visit toa baby store franchise (!) at 22 weekspregnant, a few online furniture purchasesand I thought I was done. Everything else was Mum. Bottles, nursing pads, lanolin cream, nappy bin, nappies, handmade quilts, knitted jumpers (naturally she took knitting back up when I fell pregnant!)clothes, sheets, wipes all of it.

Backto the moment in the store and I said to Mumyesplease, this is what I want to wrap mybaby in.

To that day I haven’t come across anything as special as that piece.

Clothing will come and go as will wraps andzippiesbut not that blanket, my one true keepsake.

I felt so connected to that blanket through the quality and my mother, so I was inspired torecreate this feeling into aMarmalade Lion product.

Enter our brand newAll Seasons’ TENCEL blankets and bedspreads.

TENCEL ® is perfect for bedding I could not think of a more suitable fabric I wanted to use for this project! It’s beena long time coming as I wanted it to be perfect. From the size of themotif marsupials and cockatoos to thecolour palettes and handle and touch of the fabric to be soft and memorable.

Another impressive fact about TENCEL® is that it’s certified bytheInternational Forest Stewardship Council and 100% biodegradable, perhaps the greatest benefits are the variety and exceptional comfort you can experience by having it close to your skin.
