Introducing: Shetland Malton

With an extensive flatweave and archive collection, we constantly find inspiration in our designs. Be it a reimagining of one of our most popular classics, or developing a completely new composition of stripes, we are always working on new designs behind the scenes.

Our most recent developments have been with Malton, a sophisticated and understated design that has been part of our collection since 1998. With twelve original colourways, Malton is currently available in classic Black, with subtle undulating colour in its dotted stripes. Malton Black also has a coordinating border design George Black. Calling out to us to be reimagined, we have seen an opportunity to re-colour Malton and make it a new addition to our iconic Shetland Collection.

Woven using undyed wool from the Shetland Sheep, this collection provides an eco-conscious choice for those looking for innovative and mindfully created, luxury design for the home. Using our signature weave, alternating bands of herringbone and dotted stripes in cream and warm grey tones are elevated against a textural light grey background, separated by a fine pinstripe. Beautifully complemented by the organic tones of our Shetland Wool, Malton Light Grey uses just three of the six natural shades that make up the Shetland palette, revealing a timeless colourway that sees new life breathed into the design. True to the original Malton design, the dotted stripes alternate in colour, but in this newest addition the variance is much greater which creates a bold and graphic pattern.

Shetland Malton Light Grey is an extremely versatile design with its neutral, tonal pattern lending itself to a multitude of settings. From quaint cottage with terracotta tiled floors to a sleek modern townhouse with contemporary wood tones, the design can create a striking and inviting entrance to any home. Combine with designs from the Shetland Collection for a complementary tonal palette, or go bold and add a pop of colour with pieces like our upholstered Fitzroy Bright Bench, found on our online Lifestyle Store.

Our Shetland Collection is perfect for those looking for a runner that showcases the natural beauty of real Shetland Wool, luxurious design and an entirely British production. Discover our new Shetland Malton Light Grey here, and learn more about the Shetland Collection over on our website.
