The Solar Blanket – design is based on Romania's 2000 Lei banknote. The name references the total solar eclipse featured on the bill and blanket, which depicts the last total solar eclipse of the second millennium—August 11, 1999—that was visible across much of Romania.

 The Quality – soft, durable, and lightweight, the combination of a tight two-ply weave and tear-resistant duck canvas edging produces a warm yet breathable throw that is the perfect size for two average humans or one superhuman.

The Process – jacquard looms use a limited palette of threads to weave a wide array of optically blended colors which—similar to pointillism—appear to the human eye as distinct solid colors. Tapestry artists, including Chuck Close, use this same technique to produce large scale, photorealistic wall art.
