The Calypso Mini Blanket was designed by Vienna-based artist Myriam Van Neste. A trained sculptor, Myriam now focuses on illustration and starts every of her projects with scissors, colorful paper, and a playful collage session.
Slowdown Studio Mini Blankets are proudly knitted in the USA using a high quality and environmentally friendly recycled cotton blend. The blend consists of 50% cotton and 50% polyester, which makes our blankets really soft and avoids pilling or bleeding, so you can enjoy them for years to come.

Every day, the fashion industry produces tons of cotton scraps that goes to waste. Thankfully, there are companies who recycle these scraps by respinning them into yarns, which means less cotton is planted each year, landfill is reduced, and the corresponding additional pollutants - pesticides, fertilizers, and associated fuel - are eliminated from the supply chain. In order to add softness, strength, and performance, the recycled cotton yarns are blended with polyester.
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.
