The Sakamoto Throw was designed by graphic designer Kobayashi Ikki in collaboration with KIAN for Slowdown's Tokyo Series.
Slowdown Studio are very inspired by Japanese art and design, particularly the current wave of young designers in Tokyo. With the help of KIAN, they curated a collection of blankets featuring the art of three standout designers, Kobayashi Ikki, Shun Sasaki, and Kentaro Okawara. Between these three, Slowdown were able to encapsulate everything they love about Japanese art in 2020.
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.
