Eames Wool Blanket

Size Guide

Warm Colors. Warm Weave

Charles & Ray Eames, 1947

The 'Dot Pattern' featured on the Eames Wool Blanket was created in 1947 in conjunction with an exhibition at New York's Museum of Modern Art. The large-scale composition of crossed lines and dots is reminiscent of the abstract paintings by Ray Eames from the 1930s.

Materials: 100% Merino lamb’s wool, made using the Jacquard weaving technique.

Characteristics: Merino lamb’s wool is a high-quality natural fiber that comes from the first shearing of the Merino lamb. It is extremely lightweight, fine, and soft and offers optimum heat exchange.

Quality: A great deal of technical and manual expertise is required to process high-quality natural fibers. It is for this reason that the blankets by Vitra are made by a German blanket manufacturing company with more than 100 years of experience in processing natural fibers. The high-quality implementation of the designs requires a great deal of handicraft.

Like maLike many other prominent twentieth-century architects and designers, Charles and Ray Eames also sought to implement their ideas about colors, 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 pattern is a large-scale graphic composition made up of crosses and dots, thereby referencing the abstract paintings by Ray Eames from the 1930s.

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. Available in several hues, the wool blankets are made of 100% high-quality Merino lambswool and are particularly light, fine, and soft to the touch while also providing optimal warmth and thermal balance.
