Contemporary throws

These cool contemporary throws from Portugal, sold by a Sussex company, can keep you toasty and give your home a style update. They'd also make a good Mothers' Day gift.

These cool contemporary wool throws are not only good for a style update for your home they can be practical too to have within grabbing distance for bed or sofa during this inbetweeny weather.

Two tone blankets, 130cm x 18cm, £85 each

They’re part of the Chicoraco range sold by Battle-based online shop Lusophile which specialises in Portuguese homewares, clothing and accessories. They are 100% wool, woven on traditional looms from the 1960s and finished by hand. Subtle two tone colour combos include rust and natural; mustard and grey; slate grey, and moss green.

With Mothers’ Day coming up they’d also make a lovely gift. Here are a couple more Lusophile goodies that could ring the changes for pressies.

Cleopatra bathed in Ass’s milk – well this is the next best thing – donkey milk soap! It may not give you the looks of Liz Taylor when she played the screen Cleo but it’s trendy on the continent and said to be good for dry skin.

Or, bring a little sweetness to Mum’s cuppa, breakfast or baking with this stylish hand-pressed honey gift set containing a collection of six paint-style tubes with flavours including orange blossom with chilli and rosemary with apple and cinnamon.
