Textile designer Sasha Gibb makes her work - cushions, throws and patchwork - from salvaged vintage British wool blankets, which she re-dyes and sews from her small workshop in Jersey. She also makes French hemp and linen sheets for hanging over windows as rudimentary (but great looking) curtains. The pieces are all one-offs and are hardwearing, washable and "designed with real living in mind", she says. Pictures: Sasha Gibb.
