Wallace Sewell in Cooper-Hewitt Collection

[Lambswool honeycomb throw made in England by Wallace Sewell.]

Speaking of British textiles, it was announced today that a woven blanket by Royal College of Art alums, Harriet Wallace-Jones and Emma Sewell, founders of the Wallace Sewell design studio, has been acquired by the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.

With a look somewhat similar to the abstract composition of the piece pictured above, the Museum's new textile is the 2012 Merton blanket. Curators compare the colorful Merton to the early tapestry work of Anni Albers and Gunta Stölzl.
