Cashmere blanket by Damien Hirst

Artist Damien Hirst has designed a cashmere blanket decorated with religious symbols.


Created for Other Criteria, a publishing company part-owned by Hirst, the blanket is made in Scotland using traditional techniques.


The symbols on the blanket come from Hirst's New Religion series of artworks.


Here's some info from Other Criteria:


Featuring icons from Damien Hirst’s New Religion series and large enough for a double bed, Other Criteria’s luxury blankets are 100% cashmere, made in Scotland on a Jacquard loom and finished by hand. Each has a purled fringe and 2 New Religion labels.

Using techniques similar to those used 150 years ago, fabric and colour are built up in layers and given clarity and depth by the use of soft, pure Scottish water and cloth woven from the finest of of fibres. Part of the finishing process involves air-drying and paper-pressing the blankets to ensure a lustrous surface.
