What our experts say...

Review

The Earth Worthy blanket is traditionally made on a hand loom with lovely soft cotton. It is a generous size with vibrant colours. I found it to be really well finished and great to cover up with at night as the weather warms up. Love that the dyes used are AZO free and the social enterprise story behind its weaving. A wonderful story of social, fair trade and ethical practices. I love the people over profits story.

Review

This handloom weave gave this blanket a beautiful artisan touch. It added a special statement detail to my guests’ spare room. My nephew recently stayed over and it was beautiful to see him wrapped up in this gorgeous blanket. The colour of the blanket was also divine. I love that Earth Worthy preserves and celebrates traditional crafts. In a world consumed by technology it is great to see a brand honouring and creating a business that supports families that build their income on traditional craft. I appreciated to know that these crafts will be preserved so that future generations can enjoy the celebrated beauty in artistic crafts.

I love my blanket and so do my girls. We often would use it on the couch for Sunday arvo snuggles and a movie. It was incredibly breathable and surprisingly soft. The size was huge and I can see that we will use this alot in Summer too. Bright and fun the colours were a welcome change to the white/off-white products featured all over social media.
I love a social enterprise that is run by women and supports other women, especially those who are vulnerable in the third world. The fact that Earth Worthy products break down to become a part of the earth again, replenishing the earth again is so incredibly beautiful. The circular approach they have to their enterprise is a credit to the organisation.
