100% superfine cashmere blanket by KAWS from House of Voltaire.
Produced by master Scottish craftspeople, the double–sided jacquard technique achieves a design–rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases KAWS' artwork, with a muted birdseye pattern on the underside. The blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious heavyweight feel.
KAWS' body of work straddles the worlds of art, fashion and design to include paintings, murals, large-scale sculptures, street and public art, and fashion, graphic and product design. His work is infused with humour, humanity and affection for our times. Admired for his larger–than-life sculptures and colour–filled paintings, KAWS’ cast of hybrid cartoon and human characters are drawn from pop culture animations and form a distinctive artistic vocabulary.
The blanket features a pair of gloved cartoon-like hands disappearing into an unidentified pool of liquid, undercutting the slapstick qualities of the image with darker possibilities.
