This beautiful, functional range of woollen blankets and cushions was the result of a special Tate commission which brought together artist Jacqueline Poncelet and Melin Tregwynt wool mill in Pembrokeshire.
In the first of a series of new partnerships between artists and manufacturers, Tate commissioned artist Jacqueline Poncelet to create a textile design to be woven in Wales by Melin Tregwynt. The resulting fabric – ‘Llarwydden’ or larch, in Welsh – is a response to Jacqueline’s love of her home in west Wales and also resonates with her paintings. Jacqueline’s fabric has been woven in pure wool at the Melin Tregwynt mill in Pembrokeshire which is steeped in the tradition of welsh blanket making and has been in the same family since 1912.
