Colour Block Blanket
Design by Hella Jongerius.
The color block blanket from Vitra has a graphic block pattern and is a design by the Dutch designer Hella Jongerius. The woven, two-color color combinations give a lively touch to the simplistic pattern, and the blanket is perfected with a colorful fringe on both ends. The Color Block blanket is made of high-quality Peruvian wool from the Merino sheep, known for its extremely soft wool, and Corriedale sheep, whose wool has strong, strong fibers. The combination makes the blanket both luxuriously soft and durable.
Material: 100% Peruvian high country wool
Length: 204 cm. Width: 130 cm.
