With the Moon blanket, Clara von Zweigbergk wanted to explore the duality of woven patterns. By using a gradual transition of two different colours, the design gets different shadings reminiscent of celestial bodies. The blanket can also be interpreted as a game between concave and convex.
Moon comes in four different color combinations, where each color explores the celestial shades seen in both the sun and the moon's play of colors. From the soft pastels of the morning to the cold shades of the night.
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.
