The architect and designer Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures
in American design during the postwar era. His passion for colours, patterns and
textures found expression in the field of textile design, which was a focal part
of his oeuvre.
The two-toned patterns of the Girard Wool Blankets were
originally conceived in 1971 as printing motifs for decorative wall panels,
fabrics or pillows. In collaboration with the Girard family, these graphic
designs are now being executed in a jacquard weave to produce this fine
collection of wool blankets. An additional effect of this weaving technique is
seen in the alternating constellations of vibrant and muted colour
