Colour block blanket

By Vitra


  • Description

    Colour Block Blankets by Dutch designer Hella Jongerius are a perfect illustration of how the variation of hues used for warp and weft threads affects the colour scheme of a woven textile. Four contrasting colour blocks of greater or lesser intensity attractively interact to form a decorative overall pattern. The different two-tone combinations of coloured thread are visible in the colours of the fringe at both ends and in the selvedge along the sides.

  • Technical Info

    Material: 100% Peruvian highland wool.

    The Colour Block Blankets are made of Peruvian highland wool. This is produced by a hybrid breed of sheep – a cross between a Merino, whose wool is extremely soft, and a Corriedale, which
    is known for its sturdy fibres.

    Dimension: 204x130cm
