Produced in collaboration with Pendleton Mills, this limited edition blanket designed by Mickalene Thomas is the first in a series of four blankets the artist has designed exclusively for Artware Editions. Each design will feature a different female model with intricate braiding and other bold details that present a strong, graphic image. The reverse side of the blanket shows the same design in negative giving the blanket two distinct looks.

The blanket is a soft blend of wool and cotton and is perfect as a throw, a bed covering for a full or queen sized bed, or a wall hanging. A sewn-on, suede patch signed and numbered by the artist accompanies each blanket.

The Lena blanket was released in 2014 and has been featured in Elle Decor and Casa Vogue.
