a Vintage Star special edition

Nant Gwrtheyrn or “the Nant” as it is often called, is home to the National Welsh Language and Heritage Centre, a magical place located in a former quarrying village on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula in north Wales.

Melin Tregwynt have collaborated with the team at Nant Gwrtheyrn to create an exclusive blanket for the centre based on a 1960’s original Welsh tapestry design ‘ Vintage Star’

Using the subtle colours of the sky, sea and land found in this very special part of north west Wales, the blankets are woven from pure New Wool and are both beautiful and practical, hard wearing and easy to care for.

Cambrian Check

Cambrian Check is a completely new design developed in collaboration with Smorgasbord, a Welsh design company for The Cambrian Hotel in Adelboden, Switzerland.

It fuses the Swiss cross with graphical elements of a typical Welsh double cloth pattern and the colours reflect those of the meadows, forests and rock faces that surround the hotel.

Selected for Found Muji

Some years ago we exhibited with Muji in Japan and we were really excited to be asked to work with them again, supplying our doublecloth fabrics to their new concept store, Found Muji, which has been launched in Japan, Europe and China, but not yet in the UK.

Found Muji’s goal is “to find good stuff that lasts for a long time” and they sell products from around the world, all sourced from small companies like ours and each product has its own unique story.
