A Bespoke Gentleman Explorer Double Patchwork Quilt

This Bespoke Double Gentleman Explorer Quilt, inspired by the British explorer Ernest Shackleton is 100% British made with fabrics carefully chosen to reflect the age and times that Shackleton, encountered and inspired.

The top of the quilt is Harris Tweed made from 100% wool. This is hardwearing fabric woven in Harris on the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, so the flecks of colour and weaves of the tweed fit in perfectly with the rugged landscape of Antartica where Shackleton and his men survived their epic adventure. The back of this Gentleman Explorer Quilt includes durable corduroy in just the right gents trousers shade encircled with utilitarian fabrics from Ian Mankin.

This Gentleman Explorer Quilt fits a double bed comfortably at 200 by 150cm and can be yours for just £395.

Please note: I make these unique quilts to order, so as with my commissions I say it takes 6-8 weeks to stitch a quilt from time of ordering. If you wish your own bespoke & unique Harris Tweed patchwork quilt, just click the link or e-mail me at lisa@quiltsbylisawatson.co.uk with your initial ideas and we can take it from there. I look forward to hearing from you.

Description

This Bespoke Double Gentleman Explorer Quilt, inspired by the British explorer Ernest Shackleton is 100% British made with fabrics carefully chosen to reflect the age and times that Shackleton, encountered and inspired.

The Shackleton Gentleman Explorer Quilt started being stitched as a collaboration with The Shackleton Clothing Company. (For more quilt background details, read my post Manly Shackleton quilt being stitched NOW)

The top of the quilt features sumptuous but rugged panels of genuine Harris Tweed, the world-renowned and amazingly hardwearing fabric, woven in Harris on the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. The flecks of colour and weaves of the tweed fit in perfectly with the rugged landscape of Elephant Island and the skies and waters of the Southern Ocean, where Shackleton and his men survived their epic adventure.

The back of the quilt includes durable corduroy made in Lancashire in just the right gents’ trouser shade, encircled with handsome utilitarian fabrics from Ian Mankin.

The Gentleman Explorer Quilt, inspired by the British explorer Ernest Shackleton is a perfect quilt for the study, bedroom, living room or tent! Ideal for an autumn evening of outdoor banjo playing too!

Quilt Care

This quilt is made from hard wearing Harris Tweed and British furnishing weight cotton fabrics. As such this quilt is robust and will wear well and even look better with age. Animal hairs can be removed by hoovering. Small stains can be removed with a damp cloth. I suggest airing this quilt periodically to refresh it. For a thorough clean, I recommend Dry Clean Only.

    From Geoff & Nicola – September 5 Lisa is very proud of her quilts and justifiably so. I have never seen any like them, photos do not do them justice. We purchased one of Lisa’s handmade quilts (The Shackleton) and it is fabulous. So well made with beautiful fabrics, looks good either way up too. It is also incredibly warm. Wherever possible Lisa sources from within the UK, the only thing on our quilt that isn’t British is the buttons.

    From Karl Dec16&Jan17-Thank you so much, just to let you know I safely have my Shackleton quilt it is beautiful definitely worth the wait, it is like Christmas all over again. ? (After receiving his Gentleman Explorers quilt, Karl ordered a couple of Harris Tweed patchwork hot water bottle covers for himself and a friend who had introduced him to Shackleton) Thank you so much – all received and very very happy!

    I bought my Shackleton quilt last weekend and I just love it. I have posted photos of it on Facebook and all my pals are SO envious. It is practical yet stylish and will stay with me for a very long time to come. The cushion off sets it well and I love the way it harmonises with my sheepskin cushions and throws. It is natural and British Made a symbol of all the things good about British fabric and design. If you have an opportunity to speak to Lisa Watson her enthusiasm for the fabrics and her care in combining the textures and colours is obvious. She has all the quilts made in Britain and showcases the textiles so well. I am considering spoiling myself to a summer quilt too! Lynne Mayell
