Criss-Cross Throw 3

c. 2019

by Faye Toogood
for Teixidors

Criss-Cross Throw 3 is part of Faye Toogood’s collec­tion of blanket designs for the Spanish textile firm Teix­i­dors. The collec­tion offers a playful, textural take on a tradi­tional favorite and is comprised of three vari­a­tions, each offer­ing distinct yet conjoined weaves that present a variety of discrete textures in a single piece. Criss-Cross 3 featured here, combines tones of neutral cream with dark grey and mustard edges. These colors are achieved through a combi­na­tion of natural wool tones and regular and vegetable dyeing. 

The textile trip­tychs are hand-loomed in the Teix­i­dors work­shop using natural ecolog­i­cal merino wool, care­fully washed to achieve a lightly felted and soft finish. Each piece consists of three woven quadri­lat­er­als of subtly differ­ing propor­tions and hues, sewn together into a long patch­work with fringed edging. The tactile qual­i­ties of the pieces are further enhanced with felt-like elements and Teix­i­dors’ char­ac­ter­is­tic appliquéd cords, making each of these tripar­tite blan­kets into a domes­tic anthol­ogy of fabric textures.
