The Melvin blanket is an interpretation of flowers dancing in a light wind. The stylized flowers play against a graduated background. The motif and the use of color are, among other things, inspired by traditional Japanese woodcuts. When you turn the blanket over, the colors of the flowers and the gradation change. To create the motif, an advanced binding is required, where three parallel yarn colors work against each other, instead of two.
With origins dating back to the 18th century, Røros Tweed makes fantastic quality woolen blankets in the factory located 600 meters above sea level. The large factory started up in 1952 and before that many of the products were made at home by the residents of Røros. Since then, Røros Tweed has experimented with Norwegian wool and developed textile products of high quality and good design. They have collaborated with several Norwegian designers to create a modern design that continues to be inspired by Røro's aesthetic and cultural heritage.
