Over-Felt Butter Lamp Blanket

RM7,271 MYR
Colour: Sand Washed
Description

This blanket is made using an over-felting technique developed at Norlha Atelier. Its base is a loosely woven yak khullu fabric onto which Norlha artisans hand-felt golden brown khullu to create a double-sided, two-tone blanket. Its felted side is smooth to the touch, while its woven side is softly textured. Its combination of woven and felted fabrics gives the blanket a dense, extra heavy weight.

Garment journey

- Provenance: Handwoven at Norlha Atelier using yak khullu sourced from local nomad cooperatives.
- Base colour: Yaks typically have a dark brown coat, but they can also be found in grey and, very rarely, in golden brown and white. Our artisans work with all four yak wool shades, which are either left in their natural state, combined to create different tones, or dyed.
- Yak khullu: This blanket was made using the khullu of 12 yak. Khullu is the ultra-fine, downy undercoat that keeps yak insulated during harsh Tibetan winters. Each summer, the yak naturally shed this down, which is then carefully collected by hand.
- Technique: Hand Woven
- Artisans & Processes: A team of 15 artisans handmade this blanket at Norlha Atelier. During its production, it went through 18 highly specialised processes.
- Shipping: All orders are packed with care and shipped from our atelier on the Tibetan Plateau.
