Hainsworth, one of the oldest woven luxury woollen cloth makers from Yorkshire, UK, has created a new home textiles and accessories collection celebrating some of the major historical landmarks of the country, Scarlet and Argent.

Inspired from important events like the Battle of Waterloo and Suffragette Movement and key historical personalities such as Winston Churchill, the range includes an array of warm cosy blankets and throws.

The range, which has already been procured by the British Royal Family, is slated to be showcased at the upcoming edition of bi-annual French trade fair for interior design, Maison et Objet Paris, taking place from January 23 to 27, 2015.

While talking about the collection, the managing director of the brand, Tom Hainsworth, said, “We are passionate about wool, which is why we developed our own lifestyle brand – Scarlet & Argent. We wanted to be able to pass on our passions to consumers through products that they will be able to keep in their families for generations.”

“Scarlet & Argent reflects our mill’s history and heritage: Scarlet for the uniforms we have provided to the military all the way back to the Battle of Waterloo; Argent, the old English word for silvery white, reflecting our ability to produce clean white fabric,” he explains the reason behind the title of the new line.

Caroline Allison, the Scarlet & Argent designer and the great-great-great-great-great granddaughter of the brand founder Abimelech Hainsworth, also said in a statement “After months of research, designing, weaving and sewing it is fantastic to launch the new Scarlet & Argent collection.”

“Our gorgeous new blankets and throws showcase the finest wool in luxurious shades that will brighten any space while carrying with them a touch of comforting nostalgia.So much time, effort and dedication goes into making every piece and it hass been really exciting to see my new designs come to life. I’m so proud that the Scarlet & Argent range has had orders from the Royal family,” she adds.

The line’s new Heritage Collection includes The De Lancey Throw which is name named after the heroic woman who had travelled to the battle field of Waterloo to sit by the side of her dying husband Colonel Sir William Howe de Lancey, Lady Magdalene de Lancey,. The throw is woven in the colours of the uniforms supplied to the troops who fought in the Battle of Waterloo.

Celebrating the strength and legacy of the Suffragette movement founder Millicent Fawcett, the clean lined Millicent Throw is luxuriously woven in the iconic colours of the Suffragettes. Winston Throw commemorates the pure spirit of the Blitz and the eloquent and fiery man behind it, Winston Churchill.

The Newmarket Throw pays homage to the roots of British horseracing with a striking combination of midnight navy and red stripes on a background of rich amber. The Albion Throw is made from 100 per cent new wool and based in the historic and celebrated British colours of red, white and blue.
