The two-toned patterns of Girard’s wool blankets were originally conceived as printing motifs for decorative wall panels, fabrics or pillows. In collaboration with the Girard family, these graphic designs are now being executed in a jacquard weave to produce this fine collection of wool blankets. An additional effect of this weaving technique is seen in the alternating constellations of vibrant and muted colour tones.
The architect and designer Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures in American design during the postwar era. His passion for colours, patterns and textures found expression in the field of textile design, which was a focal part of his oeuvre.
