Finland, Elisa Penttilä, Moonbeam Throw “Classic”
Product name: Moonbeam Throw “Classic”
Type of product: Throw, blanket
Description (story of the item): The vertical (warp) stripe pattern featured on this throw is inspired by moonlight that is reflected on a body of water. The pattern was actually first developed as a custom order for a newlywed couple, and the versatility of the warp pattern soon inspired a series of throws with different warp and weft colours. In this colourway the warp features light blue and white stripes on a navy blue background, complemented by white and grey weft. White weft dominates the centre of the throw, with extra wide grey stripes placed at each end. These colour blocks give the throw a classic, understated look.
The throw is woven with a thick wool yarn, which means that the throw is soft and warm. It practically invites you to take a nap or to have a cozy moment to yourself whenever you feel a bit chilly! Woven in a balanced twill weave, the throw has a great natural drape and a pleasant heaviness to it, but its compact size ensures that the throw is still easy to fold and to use despite the weight. And when not in use, this throw is a beautiful addition to interior decor with its subtle pattern and harmonious colours.
This throw is handwoven by Textile Designer Elisa Penttilä on a counterbalance loom in her studio in Helsinki, Finland. Once the throw has been woven, it is taken off the loom, steamed and finally hand finished with a twisted fringe. The throw is made to order, and a single throw takes about three full days to complete from start to finish.
