Bespoke Fabrics Ltd have been shortlisted for Fabric Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2020.
Bespoke Fabrics Ltd has developed an innovative natural insulation fabric using cashmere guard hair with a touch of wool, encased in organic cotton. Cashmere guard hair, which is considered a by-product of the cashmere industry, forms 60% of the fleece from the cashmere goat with 15,000 tonnes produced annually, has been ignored by the tradition textile industry due to its straight nature, which makes it difficult to knit or weave with.
AVA INNES the new Scottish brand (launched Sept. 19) offers a unique sleeping experience through the first to market temperature regulating cashmere duvets. Natural, breathable and weighing more than traditional feather and down products, the Ava Innes duvet is unique. IP protection is pending. This new fabric is thermally regulating, being warm in Winter and cool in Summer, and has many potential uses. The first product released using this new fabrication is duvets under the Ava Innes brand.
Selling direct to consumers online, the duvet is available in three different weights, Summer, Year-Round and Heavy Winter, and with small batch production can be made to any size. Ava Innes wants customers to sleep better, sleep natural and sleep under cashmere. Users state they “are slipping into a deeper tranquil state” and that the duvet “cocooned around the body perfectly”, “they felt well-protected, and in heaven.”
The duvets are both luxurious, stylish and launderable. Based in the North of Scotland, the signature S stitching reflects Bespoke Fabrics Ltd.’s natural surroundings of the Highlands and Islands. Inspired by their love of open space, they choose these stunning architectural rooms to showcase the first to market cashmere duvet, including a recently renovated Hopeman Railway Station, c1891 and recently extended farmers cottage overlooking open fields on the Moray coast.
