In our years of making hand-crafted decor, we met lots of people who wanted to learn how to do it themselves, but couldn’t, because of the steep learning curve involved in making an Ohhio-style blanket. Well, no more.
With Braid, creating a chunky-knit blanket or throw is easier than ever. It’s a manageable and versatile material. Also it’s washable and vegan!
The first Braid prototypes came about in March 2016. Since then, we experimented with different diameters, materials for the shell, stuffing materials, and filling density. Chaos ensued.
The current, and final, iteration of Braid has the optimal combination of a flexible cotton shell that stretches and bends without bunching up thanks to the elastane, and the softest siliconized micro hollowfiber filling that keeps it light, warm, and machine-washable. We’re pretty proud of it.
