Wales and Japan collide in this beautiful unique one-off naturally dyed quilt with stunning hand stitched stylised waves design. This future heirloom has been machine pieced and is entirely quilted by hand using Japanese Sashiko thread. Celebrating the traditions and history that surround textiles and ancient methods of dyeing, the muted colours you see here are created using the heartwood of an acacia tree, onion skins and indigo with an iron mordant.

Forest and Found was set up in early 2014 by Max Bainbridge & Abigail Booth. After graduating from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2013, they built their workshop in East London in order to focus on their shared love of making and working with natural materials. One woodworker and one quilter, their individual practices, despite seeming very different are rooted in traditional craft and a relationship with the natural environment.
Combining traditional techniques with contemporary design, Max and Abigail create products that celebrate craftsmanship in the modern home. They aim to create a direct relationship with the natural world through each hand carved spoon and naturally dyed quilt. An understanding of native trees and plants is important to sourcing local timber for bowls and foraging for dyestuff. Using this knowledge and their understanding of craft, they set out to make products that will be passed down from generation to generation.
