Little Beacon is one of our favourite brands for printed wool throw blankets, newborn swaddle wraps and ethically made in the UK homewares. Created using fabrics such as linen, merino wool, organic cotton and recycled card, small, limited run collections make each Little Beacon design that bit more special - not to mention their high quality finishes and timeless appeal! Lovingly designed in West Yorkshire, we are really chuffed to bring the Little Beacon touch to the South West here at SMALL-FOLK. Founded by Rachel Walker in 2019 Little Beacon was launched following unsuccessful searches to find interesting printed textile clothing for her newly born son. Using wooden blocks borrowed from a friend’s kindling stash, Rachel developed her first print run and hasn’t stopped since. Having begun with muslin blankets with little ones in mind, collections have expanded to quilts and matching accessories for living spaces. In celebration of her home away from home, the name Little Beacon is inspired by the local surroundings of Yorkshire; beacons of rock formations set across the nearby landscape. Each printed design is brought to life between the Little Beacon Ilkley, UK studio and by traditional artists in India who apply some of the prints seen individually by hand.
