Crux and Cross – big sister, little sister, wool and organic cotton

Crux Blanket – Our Icon

A true survivor! The cross symbol (crux in Latin) was rarely seen in the design world
before Pia Wallén introduced her Crux blanket in 1991. The blanket, a classic
in contemporary Swedish design history, is produced by a small family weavery in Sweden,
using only the finest wool. The yarn is crafted with traditional weaving machines,
which make the elegantly crafted, sharp edges. The felting is done using
traditional Scandinavian methods.

”It’s no coincidence that I designed my first felted wool blanket, Crux,
during the Kuwait invasion in 1991. The artist Joseph Beuys was also an influence.
When I first started working with blankets, I found a small weaving company in
Östergötland in southern Sweden that still worked with the traditional techniques.
I still collaborate with them. I’ve always been intrigued by the values that the cross
represents. In Swedish folk art tradition, the cross is a strong symbol for hope,
a meeting point of heaven and earth.”

The Crux blanket is the most exclusive of our objects, due to the handcraft
production process. We are limited to meeting the demand.
So please have patience – or try our new Cross Blanket in organic cotton.

Cross Blanket

The Cross Blanket is produced in superior quality pure organic cotton
in collaboration with a Swedish company that manufactures their own organic cotton
in Peru. The cotton is grown in a completely natural way, without any use of chemicals.
It is handpicked without the use of defoliants by small scale farmers on their own
land under fair labour standards.
