The two-colours pattern of the Girard wool blankets were initially created for as print motives for decorative wall panels, fabrics or cushions. The graphic patterns were now realized in Jaquard weaving technique as wool blankets in cooperation of Vitra with the Girard family. This has for an effect that the combinations of powerful and opaque tones appear in changing compositions.

Alexander Girard became head of the textiles department at Herman Miller, which is the reason why numerous patterns and textile designs appeared by him in the 1950s. Girard was part of a design team, which influenced the basics of design deciding together with George Neslon and Charles and Ray Eames – starting in the United States, going to the world.

Based on his architectural career, Girard created some famous textiles collections, embossed with simple geometric forms, such as stripes, spheres and triangles. Many of the popular and classic designs, made by Girard as upholstery and coating fabrics or curtains, are still available and haven’t lost any of their modernity.

More details:

  • Material: 100% merino lamb wool, made in Jacquard weaving technique.
  • Characteristics; Merino lamb wool is a high class natural fibre and comes from the first shearing of the merino lamb. It is weightless, very fine, soft to be touched and it is perfectly heat compensating.
  • Quality: A lot of technical and manual know-how is needed to process natural fibres. That’s the reason why the Vitra blankets are made by a German blankets manufactory which has more than 100 years of experience of work with natural fibres. The high class realization of the sketches demands a lot of handwork.
