For inspiration I looked at the warp and weft of premium Japanese denim and noticed how the reverse of the material held as much beauty as the face of the fabric. By using a lino-printing method with Prussian blue ink on textured paper I realised that I could emulate the effect of the weave pattern and as with the denim the finished blanket would look beautiful on both sides. Hand printed onto cotton paper. I naturally wanted to use a mixture of indigo and natural wool yarns to give the blanket a timeless feel just like your favourite old pair of jeans.
