A new development: "twisted yarns"
The news of this collection is the use of the "twisted yarns" which gives a unique melange colour effect to the blankets. To weave the blankets we used two yarns with the same thickness but in different colours. The beauty that comes out of this artistic choice is a kaleidoscopic game of colours and the creation, at the same time, of a pattern which cannot be controlled.

Bauhaus 100
In occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, Michele Rondelli & Sophie Probst continued the series of "Bauhaused" blankets adding 3 new designs to the previous collection. Geometric patterns declined in bright colours, celebrate one of the most important movement of architecture, art and design of the whole 20th century.

Daniel Barreto is a Mexican experimental artist, based in Guadalajara, who has established a unique identifiable style with his use of abstract shapes and vibrant colours. Daniel Barreto's work has been exhibited at Time Square, Saatchi Gallery, Beijing's Yuan Art Museum and more.

Michele Rondelli is a Swiss born interior architect educated in Switzerland and in Paris. Since 2015 he was appointed as the Creative Director for ZigZagZurich and 4Spaces, two innovative and leading textile brands headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland.

Sophie Probst, a recent graduate from the Stuttgart Academy of Fine Art, has a long-standing fascination with traditional weaving and drawing, mixed with modern pattern design and coloration work. Her designs are a celebration of colour and freedom, with intricate detail that covers board spectrums of interests.
