Charlotte throw - cozy one of a kind cashmere blanket - fall confetti
I grew up with warm weather. I’m a sunshine girl and I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of cold weather. Enter cashmere!
Some years ago, I discovered a cashmere sweater at the Rose Bowl flea market in Los Angeles. That’s all it took. I wore it and loved it. Ever since then, I’ve been dreaming of doing some sort of a cashmere collection. And I’m like Linus from Peanuts - I love a good blanket! I designed this piece to work as a throw / travel blanket / chunky scarf. Easy enough to take on the go in your tote bag, chunky enough to be the blanket that everyone in your family fights over.
So I took my color and sense of composition and have started to create a collection of usable art pieces. These cashmere blankets are made of vintage cashmere and factory offcuts and are shrunk and dried before I assemble them from together. I use an intuitive, improvisational method and add touches of color with neon thread that is used to combine them all together.
Like traditional quilts, the beauty is in the imperfections. I send these off with a lavender sachet, 3 patches, and extra thread so that you can care for repair the pieces as they are warn and loved over the years.
I created this blanket using approximately 70 pieces of cashmere assembled together. I’m calling this color pallet - fall confetti.
I can create a bespoke blanket for you with a color pallet of your choosing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
Each blanket comes with 3 extra cashmere patches and a scented lavender scented sachet (I use essential oil and cotton pads instead of seeds inside to ease shipping across international borders).
