LA-based Slowdown Studio just launched Season Seven of their limited edition, artist-designed blankets with the latest designs by Oakland-based artist and musician Chaz Bear, aka Toro y Moi frontman and head of Company Studio. The pair of blankets, Emerson and Barrett, puts forth Bear’s graphic abilities, which have always played a pivotal role in his endeavors but might not have been as widely known as his musical pursuits. As with previous collections, each blanket is made in the USA out of 100% cotton that’s grown, spun, and woven in North Carolina.
Emerson boasts an eye-popping wavy pattern in primary colors along with black dots on a white background.
Barrett is a graphic, black and white pattern featuring a Brancusi-inspired figure surrounded by four colors.
