When your sofa is too good to cover, but it just needs that extra something, choose this beautiful and colourful throw. The pattern is based on a form of weaving called Saami, which is traditionally used for belts, and it is painstakingly constructed on a handloom. The brushed cotton, with which this one is made, makes it both weighty and soft which is a dream combination. Whether folded over the arm of a leather sofa, slung casually across a chair, wrapped around you for additional warmth or snuggled under it by the fire on a winter evening, this throw is destined to become a much-loved and long-lasting addition to your world. Not just a cover up, but a must-have accessory.
