This blanket was designed by fine artist, Maja Maljevic.
The title 'Sketch 22' is a play on Ã¢â‚¬ËœCatch 22Ã¢â‚¬â„¢, it also refers to the nature of the sketch-like lines of the artwork and the fact that it has been created in the year 2022.
MajaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s playful creative process is intriguing. She dabbles in painting, printmaking, sketching, collaging and pottery to name a few. Her final pieces are usually layered by various techniques resulting in very distinctive complex and colourful works.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœSketch 22Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ started out as doodles on a restaurant slip which Maja enlarged and overlapped with characteristic collaged geometric shapes.
MajaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fun-loving spirit translates in her work; her paintings, prints and ceramics are packed and layered with all the happy feels. This blanket in particular is especially impressive both in scale (it is the largest blanket weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ever made!) and detail, much like her latest solo exhibition at David Krut Projects.
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.
