Like many other prominent twentieth-century architects and designers, Charles and Ray Eames also sought to implement their ideas about colours, shapes and materials in the design of
textiles. The 'Dot Pattern' was created in 1947 in conjunction with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The Eames Wool Blankets are produced in a jacquard weave, which means that the colours of
the 'Dot Pattern' are reversed on the front and back.
Material: 100% Merino lambswool, produced in a jacquard weave.
Characteristics: Merino lambswool is a high-quality natural fibre obtained from the first
shearing of Merino lambs. It is extremely light, fine and soft to the touch while also providing
optimal warmth and thermal balance.
Quality: working with premium natural fibres requires considerable technical know-how and
manual skill. For this reason, Vitra blankets are made by a German blanket manufacturer with
over 100 years of experience in fabricating products from natural fibres. Their expert hand
craftsmanship ensures the high-quality execution of the designs.
