Merkez Cotton Blanket

Teal & off-white herringbone design, 150 x 245 cm

100% cotton


Stunningly refined and made with gorgeous attention to details, the Merkez Cotton Blanket will give your sofa, bed or your shoulders the perfect amount of warmth on fresh, summer nights. Woven in Istanbul, the birthplace of the hammam towel, this oversized cotton creation borrows from this tradition of finely woven, light layers to create a delicate herringbone pattern in a neutral colour palette. Like all our blanket collections, the Merkez is 100% natural. The cotton used is carefully selected to ensure a soft but durable finish, and one that is delightfully easy to clean. This generous 150 x 240 centimetre size features thick, eight-centimetre knotted tassels on either end – the perfect finish for this gorgeous design.


From the very beginning, our cotton blankets, throws and hammam towels have been extremely popular thanks to their natural fibres, lighter weight, and versatile, elegant designs. When developing the Merkez collection, these were the exact things we kept in mind. We continued our own tradition of using the best natural fibres we could find, and coupled this with the best traditional weavers we could find in the home of thin woven textiles. The result is a generously large, classic design that pays heed to honest materials and craftsmanship, but which will fit seamlessly into the modern home.

Samantha ASKS:

"Is it thick enough to be used as a bedspread?"

"The Merkez has quite a high fabric density of 350 grams per square metre, weighing around 1.3 kilograms. This is heavier than a standard cotton bed sheet, and used together, would make a good substitute for a blanket or duvet in hot weather."
