REdDUO's "Loads of Lines" Collection Produces Sustainable Blankets
Blurring the lines between coziness, ecoconsciousness, and art.
The snow is rolling in, the cost of heating is high, and the nights are drawing sooner, which means it’s the perfect time to invest in a blanket that’s beautiful aesthetically and within its ethos. Luckily, Fabiola di Virgilio and Andrea Rosso’s multifaceted Italian design studio REdDUO has just the thing courtesy of its new “Loads of Lines” collection, releasing 50 blankets made using repurposed materials.
As expected from REdDUO, these are not just blankets but “art blankets.” Earning the name for the artisanal expertise involved in the making process, each blanket is crafted with upcycled deadstock fabrics — notably discarded 100% wool. Each piece of fabric was given a second life by being entrusted to three tailors, who took the cuts to create a range that’s fluid yet somehow geometric in its nature.
Following this, Di Virgilio and Rosso drew hand-painted designs on the blankets before adding the embossed printed upcycled tag. REdDUO’s “Loads of Lines” blankets (which measure 2m x 1.4m) will drop on December 15 on RedMilk space’s website. Take a closer look at the offering above.
