Softly textured blankets, handcrafted throws and sheet sets woven together from luxurious natural fibers (think pure linen, cotton, wool or bamboo), make the perfect contemporary wedding gift.
Historically bestowed to brides as part of the wedding trousseau (a collection of monogrammed linen, jewelry, china, silverware and clothing assembled before marriage), these sumptuous everyday pieces are just as beautiful as they are useful, and perfectly translate for any season or climate.
For the ultimate sophistication opt for pure linen sheets, the world’s oldest luxury fibre, in a neutral palette of fresh white, dusky grey, black or taupe. While global treasures in the form of Moroccan wedding blankets will appeal to the nomads at heart who will appreciate their symbolic and cultural meaning.
Ornate Kantha quilts, stitched together from Indian wedding saris, also hold significant meaning and make thoughtful home decor gifts when sourced through ethical channels, such as the Love Spread by Leo & Lotus. The quilt features velvet, delicate silk embroidery and intricate hand beading which takes 12 women up to five months to make. Every cent is donated back to the third world artisans who painstakingly craft them in India and Nepal so they can use the money to buy equipment like sewing machines or to pay for an education.
