6 ways you’ll know if you are using your Brahms Mount in a way that shows the design and is the best for fit:
Look for the Brahms Mount Label
On the face side of every blanket, throw, baby blanket, towel, and wrap, is the Brahms Mount label. It identifies us as the designer and manufacturer, and tells you who is responsible for the luxury and comfort you are experiencing!
Made for The Dean hotel in Providence, Brahms Mount will often co-brand and design blankets with like-minded retail and design firms.
Every blanket and throw has a care label with the size identified
On the back of every blanket, located behind the Brahms Mount label, there is a care label. It gives directions on how to care for your blanket and it identifies size. The Throws all say the word THROW, and the blankets have labels printed with the bed size it is designed for: TWIN, FULL, QUEEN, or KING. This label will be sewn in under the hand turned hem, just behind the Brahms Mount label.
When stitching, our hems are turned to be on the back of the blanket
Our hems will always be folded to the back. Corners are either mitered (you’ll see a slanted angle and the turn of the corner), or folded with a traditional corner. In all cases you’ll find that our stitching is handled in such a way that the edges of your blankets have a beautiful border and a cohesive appearance.
Is there a better blanket to have on top when layering
The Brahms Mount collections are fully cross-coordinated. This means that all blankets layer beautifully. Try a White Sahara blanket under a White/Surf Herringbone, or a Natural Sahara under a stripe Linen blanket. Let those patterns show! When choosing a more textural weave, we suggest you place it as your top layer. A perfect example would be our Madison Cotton Blanket.
Direction of Design
These can be considered directions for use of the blanket! Striped and Herringbone blankets will have the design running vertically from the top to bottom of the bed. Patterns such as Wicker, Starry Nights and Stitched Plaid are all-over patterns. In most cases the blankets will fit naturally in a certain direction. For example, a Twin size blanket will only fit on the bed one way - the narrower side being the width, the long side - its length. The King size, wider than it is long. The Queen size is the only exception, as it is nearly square. In this case, follow the direction of the weave as described above.
