Geometric Print Linen Throw Blanket
This item is made to order, and typically ships in 5-7 business days.
Hand sewn, 100% linen multi-use throw; screen printed with our hand sketched geometric print.
Our beautiful hand printed linen throws make the perfect beach towel. Large enough for two people and made of 100% linen, this throw is strong and durable while still being lighter than your favorite novel. Our throw is twice as big as your average beach towel yet folds down to half the size. Linen repels sand and stains, and dries more quickly than a cotton terry cloth towel, meaning you can go from surf to sand in less time than it takes to reapply your sunscreen. Two quick shakes and you‰۪re sand-free, meaning you can return to your car or home without taking the beach along with you.
When beach season is over, this throw multi-tasks as a picnic blanket or tablecloth, and will look great thrown effortlessly over your bed or the back of your couch as a lightweight throw blanket.
Born and raised in a Lake Michigan beach town, founder and designer Emma Zwissler lives for the sun, sand, and water. The Everyday Throw was born out of a need to need to simplify our material world - one throw that does it all, with a convergence of form and function. Not only is our Everyday Throw made of heirloom-quality linen, but it‰۪s gets better with age: as it travels with you from the beach to the park to the living room sofa, the Everyday Throw gets softer, more supple, and more absorbent. Did we mention? This is the last beach towel you‰۪ll ever need.
+ Why linen?
> Linen is stronger than cotton and gets softer with each and every wash.
> Linen is highly absorbent, and is durable enough to last over 20 years - an heirloom quality fabric that only gets better with time.
> Made from flax (a renewable resource), linen is environmentally friendly, biodegradable, and free of harmful toxins. Flax is grown using only a fraction of the water needed to grow cotton, and is produced from plant to fiber without the use of toxic chemicals. Our supplier‰۪s production of the linen used to make our products creates zero water or air pollution.
Product & Care Information:
+ The throw measures 56"W x 72"L - think a large size picnic blanket, or a beach blanket large enough for two people to lay side by side (my favorite way to use it!)
+ Machine washable (warm or cool) on a gentle cycle setting, ideally with phosphate-free detergent for optimal color retention. Steam iron on a high heat setting if desired. Product is unwashed upon shipment and will incur 1-3% shrinkage during the first wash cycle.
A Note About Screenprinting:
Screenprinting is a manual, hand printing process which can result in slight variations from print to print. As an artist, I see this as part of the beauty of a hand made item, and part of what makes each Loft Studios item uniquely yours.
