Winston And Waterloo Throws Celebrate British History By The Luxury Channel
One of Britain’s oldest companies, Hainsworth, has created two new throws to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo – and the 50th anniversary of the death of Winston Churchill. The company has been producing woollen textiles since 1783 in a Yorkshire mill that has been in the family for seven generations. They designed the De Lancey Throw using the colours of the uniforms they supplied to the troops who fought in the Battle of Waterloo. The throw itself is named after Lady Magdalene de Lancey who travelled to the battlefield of Waterloo in 1815 to sit with her injured fiancé as he died. The Winston Throw, meanwhile, is inspired by Winston Churchill and the pure spirit of The Blitz. Both throws are made from 100% Pure New Wool and cost £110 each. The throws are part of a new Scarlet & Argent collection of woollen blankets, throws and accessories which launched at this year’s Maison.
