Using the classic technology of an extra-wide jacquard loom, our friends at Piscatextil in Portugal, painstakingly weave our Creature Comfort pattern into cotton throws, bedspreads, and shams. Everyone loves the substantial weight of these textiles and the delightful texture that results from the interaction of the dark and light threads.

My sister surprised me with this for my birthday and it just arrived. I actually own the throw, so I can positively say these new blankets are of equal amazing quality. This blankets are so well made, so lovely to feel and use, and so washable, that when it first arrived and I thought I had *two throws*, I was over the moon. Finding out it’s big enough to cover my whole bed? Whole new levels of excitement. She joined the kickstarter, so I didn’t even know this size *existed* yet!
Hands down the best bang for your buck blanket I’ve ever seen.
I absolutely love it. High quality and the perfect weight. Extra bonus that it's double sided and that the colors are reversed when turned over. So nice!
I’m beyond happy with this set. I had the throw blanket but wanted a full sized blanket for my bed with the shams. These are so very well made. These are the kind of quality I have seen in $1,000+ USD quilts. I highly recommend this product!!!! And of course, it has Don’s brilliance meticulously stitched throughout!!!
So pleased I got into the kickstarter for the queen size bedspread and shams. OMG! Like the throw (you should sense a theme, here), this is soft and, indeed, comforting! I received it yesterday, put it on the bed last night, and it looks good and sleeps terrific!
I have had the Calamityware woven throw for some time now and have been very happy with it! I am a serious fiber hobbyist and know quality when I encounter it - and the throw is mighty fine! It is heavier than one would expect, not in a warmth manner but in actual weight. It's almost like a very light weighted blanket. Unlike many doubleweave/jacquard textiles, there aren't long floats to get caught on clothing or pet claws. The individual cotton threads used to weave are not thick, which makes the surface both smooth and dimensional. (I have had double side throws in the past made by other manufacturers that use heavy gauge yarns and often have long floats - or unanchored threads - which can catch on things and ruin the weave).
When I learned that bedspreads were planned, I was so excited! Sadly, I missed the Kickstarter (overzealous spam filter to blame) but obsessively checked the site and was able to score a king bedspread and set of shams! I am using them now, and couldn't be happier. The throw is a bit much WITH the bedspread to my eye, so my oldest son happily laid claim to the throw, and everyone is happy.
This is an excellent product. Knowing what I do about textile production, I can say without reservation that it is a bargain! Do not hesitate if you are on the fence. Totally a great value and lovely and fun to look at.
I’ve been looking for new bedding for awhile, but I couldn’t find anything that I liked and was a reasonable price. I wanted a bedspread that wasn’t too heavy. When i first opened the package, I thought it might not be light enough. After washing it and putting it on the bed, it is perfect.
I do not believe I’ve ever bought anything that so exceeded my expectations as this magnificent bedding. So beautiful!
Love my calamityware bedding! After upgrading my bed and mattress, I needed to add some chaos to my comfort. The king sized bedspread is fantastic quality, super comfortable, and, of course, awesome.
So wild about this bedspread and shams!! The fabric is luxurious…like a heavy cotton linen, and the stitching is of such high quality. It makes for sweet sleep and when made, the bed looks completely ship-shape. A win!!
I love my bedding set. It is just the right weight and is beautifully made. I'm so happy with my bedspread and matching shams!!
