handwoven cotton, hand dyed corduroy

48 x 64 in

This 100% cotton throw was inspired by patterns in lens test charts and proportions of monk’s belt, a traditional motif in Scandanavian weaving.Subtle pastel tones mix with an inky green to create a striking optical effect with softness. This throw is thick but breathable, a perfect summer blanket. The edges are finished with hand dyed corduroy. Kira wove six blankets in three designs on this warp in their weaving studio in Columbus, OH. This blanket features subtle variation and imperfections, intrinsic in handmade goods. Care: machine washable, line dry to extend the life of the textile.
