Peony in Black & Scarlet.

 
Continuing the project of reproducing old patterns from my own personal collection.
 
A traditionally woven double cloth bedcover woven for me by Eric at Melin Teifi. Originally produced at DERW Mill a few miles from Drefach at Pentrecwrt & woven by my friend Ken Cole. This mill was sister mill to Gwilli Mill for a short period in the 1950s.This pattern was a corruption of early North Wales`Rose pattern first introduced a century earlier by Hannah Jones at Penmachno. A pattern that occurs on both sides of the Atlantic & has a long history in Wales. One of my favourites; I have examples from Penmachno from the Nineteenth Century through to 1960s` versions from DERW.
 
Here I have reproduced a version based on the Penmachno one. With groups of Roses in a grid design within circles. No fringes as they were never on these old patterns , instead we have a tradtional chain border design on the two long sides. Finished with a high twist and flat nap, blanket stitched on two ends.
 
Woven on a 1930s` Dobbcross loom, each thread put through the heddles by hand....thanks Eric!
 
A dynamic colourway which creates an arts & crafts feel. Coal Black with Madder Red & White. Fully reversable with more Black one side.

Pure soft lambswool.
 
Measure 86" x 68" ( 220cm x 174cm)

Selected as a gift for president Obama for NATO Wales 2014
