This blanket was designed by Tara Deacon, a South African Illustrator & painter living and working in Berlin since 2014.
In her own words; "City Shapes is inspired by the forms, lines, corners and curves found within the hustle and bustle of a city.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¾ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¶ÃƒÂ¢Ã‹â€ Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬ËœÃƒÂ¢Ã‹â€ Ã…Â¡ÃƒÂÃ¢â€šÂ¬
TaraÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¾ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¶ÃƒÂ¢Ã‹â€ Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬ËœÃƒÂ¢Ã‹â€ Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¥s work explores the simplicity of everyday observations, a combination of memory and place - both real and imagined. Her compositions are populated with patterns, colours and characters influenced from her travels, personal relationships, books and popular culture, bringing through a narrative storytelling quality to her work. Her curiosity to play with colours, shapes and forms & how they work with one another in a composition express a cohesive flavour of optimism and vibrance reminiscent of her homeland.

For machine washing, it is recommended to wash alone and not with other items.
In order to keep the fineness and the length of the fibres of the cotton, the blankets should be machine washed on a gentle cycle at 30° maximum, or cold water is recommended. Do not use fabric softener or bleach, and prefer a gentle spin cycle to avoid twisting or deforming.
Drying of Soft Knitwear
In order to keep their shape and fit, all items should be dried flat on a towel in a shaded area.
Do not tumble dry.
Do not hang dry.
Do not dry in direct sunlight.
Iron softly on the reverse side. It is also highly recommended to apply a damp cloth between the iron and the garment to protect the fibres.
Other Needs of Soft Cotton
Over time, it is possible that the knit will make snags or pilling in certain areas of friction. For this, there are small devices specially designed for clothing care at knit. To make up for the snags, small hooks, very easy to use, exist to remesh the threads of the items. To remove pilling, anti-pilling razors are very effective and do not damage the sublime and softness of the items.
