Colour Block Blankets
Hella Jongerius for Vitra
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 color scheme of a woven textile. Four contrasting color blocks of greater or lesser intensity attractively interact to form a decorative overall pattern. The different two-tone combinations of colored thread are visible in the colors of the fringe at both ends and in the selvage along the sides.
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 fibers.
