Cairo Black and White Throw by Areaware
The Cairo throw is made from organic cotton by Areaware and has a fascinatingly graphic story behind its design! Cairo was a typeface designed by Susan Kare in 1984 for the first Macintosh operating system and is said to be the original emoji. Taking its name from the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt, each symbol was drawn by hand using the bitmap grid. Kare herself designed this woven blanket for the Jacquard loom, an early example of computer-controlled machinery, operated with punched cards and invented by Joseph Jacquard in 1801. The symbols on the throw include an avocado, a dinosaur, a flower and an arrow.
