Lifestyle: The Call For Alpaca Wool
If your friends can be found on a crisp starry night relaxing around a bonfire so bright, this is the call for the superior warmth of our Chunky Hounds-tooth 100% Alpaca Throw. The Alpaca fiber is so smooth and warming, it is very well suited for bringing outdoors as it possesses ideal thermal properties.
Lifestyle: Collecting By Color
A home develops personality over time. House-ware items, home textiles, and choice of art will reflect a theme. It often starts with a color, growing into a collection that becomes a personal statement. Once you’ve discovered someone who collects by color, you can choose from several of our collections to coordinate your gift right into their lifestyle.
Our classic and founding Cotton collections:
- Ticking Stripe Blanket and Herringbone Cotton Blanket and Throw.
- New and soon to joint the Cotton classics: Camden Stripe.
Fine Micron Wool collections:
- Ombre Throw, a watercolor effect from dark to light.
- Fez Throw, jacquard-woven with exceptional border patterning.
Lifestyle: For The Love Of Texture
We all respond to texture, many are simply enamored by the textures that surround. Artists, chefs, fashion designers and architects use texture in a myriad of glorious ways. Texture is a gift for the eyes and senses.
Boucle Throw, simply put, pure textural luxury in Cotton / Wool.
Lifestyle: For The Love of Pure Comfort
There is quiet pleasure that comes from the Earth’s subtle palette of soft colors and natural fibers. When woven into a textile it is elixir to the senses.
Flax reaches up from the earth in a singe stalk, the blue/purple flower blooms, the plant fiber is taken from the stalk, spun into yarn, and named Linen. There is purity in this fiber and it is experienced in use. You are touching the earth when you choose Linen.
Color is therapeutic, and both the colors and content in our fine-micron Merino wool Pinstripe Blanket melt with you in subtle resplendence. Your bed is a sanctuary with this blanket; the twin size is a perfect gift as a personal blanket for a man, or across the foot of a bed.
Lifestyle: The Shawl
Fabrics are designed for lifestyles. Are you the outdoor shower type? A camper? Is the den your favorite room? These are the types of questions you could ask when it comes to choosing a blanket, throw, linen towel, or wrap as a gift. Activities point to lifestyle.
A shawl is a wonderful choice for a person who loves their fabric even when on the move. It surrounds the neck and is one of the most comforting items in a wardrobe. Protecting and warm, it is wearable art and a constant reminder of the origin of the gift. Perhaps the best throws to use as a shawl are the Fine Micron Wool Throws: Ombre and Fez
Lifestyle: The Throw Type
A Throw is the hug that comes on the couch, on a chaise, over your legs, enveloping more of the body than a wrap. It is in use mostly in more stationary positions. However, a throw travels well to events, is useful in the bleachers, on the beach, the boat, in the car, well, just about anywhere!
Lifestyle: The Blanket Type
Blankets are sometimes the most comforting fabric of the day. With little time for lounging, a busy lifestyle often means the bedroom holds the most restful moments.
Blankets are a way to appreciate fabric in a most functional way. Many homes have spare as they are always in need!
Temperate climate, city streets? Snow-capped paradise - a fabulous cabin in the woods? Natural fibers perform according-to-the-environment and they are the most flexible when it comes to variable temperatures.
Wool is the natural choice for cold weather, creating warmth when in use - most beneficial. Brahms Mount wool is especially soft and therefore, an easy choice. The nice surprise, wool is equally as functional and comfortable in moderately warmer climates (as long as the humidity is low!)
Linen thrives around water - as a towel. It is the throw on your shoulders, or the solo blanket on the bed. A chameleon in all weather, it conforms to your body and transforms the air between you and the folds of fabric. Linen insulates when cool, evaporates moisture when warm.
Cotton is the fiber that remains a constant. It is a comforting fabric. Weight and weave affect the density. Lighter blankets are a perfect layering blanket or all one needs in moderate to warm weather. Cotton provides just enough weight without excess warmth.
Create a collection with Brahms Mount. Pair Blankets, Throws, Pillows or Towels for birthdays, engagements and celebrations that continue throughout the year.
Decorative Pillows and Pillow Shams
Throw pillows that coordinate well are often elusive. When it comes to coordination, our Decorative and Standard Pillows are designed specifically to cross merchandise with our throw and blanket collections. A blanket or a throw paired with coordinated pillow shams is a natural and surprising gift.
- A Linen Blanket will pair simply and beautifully with striped or solid linen Pillow Sham. Add a Linen Throw for a complete collection of linen, its beauty revealed in use, visually just so elegant.
- Match blankets with their companion throw. Marly Blanket is a textural and visual delight of color interplay woven in cotton. Marly Throw has the added texture of our signature hand twisted fringe.
- Soft Organic Wool Pillow Inserts are entirely comforting, especially when in use with Brahms Mount Wool Blankets. The experience is total thermal comfort, nicely climate controlled next to you.
- Decorative Pillows are the gems of a soft cotton bed, a book being read. Pair a Cotton Throw for a nap with a soft landing for a back. Tuck pillows in and around you when in use, toss for texture as adornment or as a match to a blanket.
Linen towels are one of the most versatile pieces of cloth on earth. Ours are absorbent, hearty, and have the appearance and functionality of elegant fabric cultivated over time. Linen is substantial and natural in every way. It has a presence that can be felt. Natural fibers are recognizable from the moment they are handled, each possessing individual characteristics. Linen Towels are a gift from the earth.
Brahms Mount Bath Sheets, Bath Towels, Kitchen / Hand Towels, and Washcloths are designed for long lasting use. Coordinate a grouping of multiple sizes for a whole family or occasion.
The Kitchen / Hand Towel size will travel everywhere. A collection of these will find their way to every room of the house and possibly places outdoors.
Throws / Twin Size Blankets

- For a mother / daughter birthday.

- Welcome for the foot of a bed.
- In the dorm-room.
