Curio Practice – Blue Blanket, 2022
THE BLUE BLANKET was made with a sense of intuition between pattern, colour and the abilities of the knitting machine. I made one rectangular pattern repeat a constant, uninterrupted bold blue that acts as an anchor to the blanket. Whereas the other rectangular pattern repeat is forever changing, unpredictable and very spontaneous.
Launched in October 2020, CURIO is a practice in slow craftsmanship and responsible knitting, partnering with ethical factories and using consciously selected Australian Merino wool yarns to create heirloom-quality blankets for the everyday. Founded by material designer Georgie Brunmayr, CURIO was born from a desire to create a product of technical excellence, comfort and beauty, with lifelong durability.
