This bespoke double Gentleman Explorer Quilt, inspired by the British explorer Ernest Shackleton is 100% British made with fabrics carefully chosen to reflect the age and times that Shackleton, encountered and inspired.
The Shackleton Gentleman Explorer quilt started being stitched as a collaboration with The Shackleton Clothing Company. (For more quilt background details, read my post Manly Shackleton quilt being stitched NOW)
The top of the quilt features sumptuous but rugged panels of genuine Harris Tweed, the world-renowned and amazingly hardwearing fabric, woven in Harris on the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. The flecks of colour and weaves of the tweed fit in perfectly with the rugged landscape of Elephant Island and the skies and waters of the Southern Ocean, where Shackleton and his men survived their epic adventure.
The back of the quilt includes durable corduroy made in Lancashire in just the right gents’ trouser shade, encircled with handsome utilitarian fabrics from Ian Mankin.
The Gentleman Explorer Quilt, inspired by the British explorer Ernest Shackleton is a perfect quilt for the study, bedroom, living room or tent! Ideal for an autumn evening of outdoor banjo playing too!
This quilt is made from hard wearing Harris Tweed and British furnishing weight cotton fabrics. As such this quilt is robust and will wear well and even look better with age. Animal hairs can be removed by hoovering. Small stains can be removed with a damp cloth. I suggest airing this quilt periodically to refresh it. For a thorough clean, I recommend Dry Clean Only.
