The Benson Throw was designed by London-based illustrator Marnie Cox. This design was selected as one of twelve winners of the 2020 Slowdown Art Comp.
Slowdown Studio woven blankets are the perfect weight to be used on the couch, as a picnic rug, or to hang on the wall as art. They are proudly made from 100% cotton grown, spun and woven in the USA. All blankets are manufactured with yarn that is made from 70% recycled cotton.
Each blanket measures 54" x 70" (137cm x 178cm). Care instructions: Cold machine wash on a gentle cycle, and dry on a cool cycle or line dry.
Slowdown Studio is the creative project of Australian-born, Los Angeles-based designer Marc Hendrick. With a love of playful prints and patterns, Marc selects his favourite illustrators and artists from around the world to collaborate on a series of woven blankets. With limited runs of each style, Slowdown Studio celebrates individuality and artistry, bringing these unique pieces into homes in the form of something as beautiful and versatile as a 100% cotton throw.
Whether laying around a grassy knoll, sunning on a beach or getting comfy on the couch, Slowdown Studio blankets are the perfect item to help you find a welcome change of pace and comfort. So grab a coffee, a book and a blanket, and slow it down.
