Like many other legendary 20th-century architects and designers, Charles and Ray Eames, too, spent time designing textiles to realize their ideas in terms of colours, shapes and materials. The “Dot Pattern” was created in 1947 in conjunction with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The pattern consists of variations of a graphic design made up of crosses and dots to become a large composition, and demonstrates references to the abstract paintings by Ray Eames from the 1930s. The blankets are reversible making them even more appealing.

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.
