A sunny yellow cotton comforter, the Blanked Tonton blanket’s woven yellow circles create light quilting to four layers of the softest Japanese gauze. It’s a warm layer for chilly nights, yet lightweight enough for spring and absorbent for summer. Each is reversible, with white circles and yellow background on one side and yellow on white on the other. Its curved edges, trimmed with a strip of yellow, perfect the gentle aesthetic of this blend of traditional Japanese textile techniques and playful contemporary design.
There are two other designs in brown and blue that we think are great to mix and match. Each design is named after a Japanese onomatopoeic word: Tonton is tap tap, Shitoshito (blue) is the gentle drip of rain, and Zakuzaku (brown) is the crunch of walking on frost. Visit our Blanked blanket collection to see them all.
We are huge fans of Japanese gauze. Made of super thin layers of cotton, stitched together to trap air, it's warm but breathable, hygienic and absorbent, and it gets softer and cozier with each wash. Blanked blankets are made by Nakamori Gauze in Mikawa, Aichi Prefecture, the birthplace of Japan’s cotton textile industry, and are woven and stitched together using techniques that date back to the Edo Period. Their outer layers are finely woven gauze, the inner ones of a thicker, airy weave. Every blanket is pre-washed in mineral water derived from nearby Mount Ishizuchi to ensure softness. They may rumple a little with washing, but that just adds to their beauty as they become even fluffier with use.
