Cocooning, and chic, quilts are something of an ‘it girl’ interior piece for Autumn 2022. But don’t let that get you thinking quilts are a zeitgeisty throwaway. Quilts have actually been stitched together in English since the 13th Century, so ‘timeless’ goes some way to describe these humble blankets.

What is Quilting? 

A ‘quilt’ is from the method of quilting, that’s when layers of materials are stitched together. And the stitching is often an embroidered, stylistic design. The very earliest we’ve seen the phenomenon of quilting was actually used to make bed covers in Medieval England. You’d come across it in Latin as ‘culcita’, meaning ‘bolster’, or ‘cushion’ and would be found in records in Medieval inventories, since quilts were prized possessions and often handed down in heirlooms.
