The Yerba Blanket – design is based on Argentina's 10 Peso banknote. The name is a reference to Argentina's national drink, yerba mate, which the laurels on the blanket bear a striking resemblance to. The plum and gold-colored sun is the Sol de Mayo which is also featured on Argentina's flag and commemorates the May Revolution of 1810.

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.
