About the edition
A new 100% superfine Cashmere wool blanket by artist Sanya Kantarovsky, produced by master Scottish craftspeople. The double-sided knitting technique achieves a design-rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases the Kantarovsky's artwork, whilst a colourful birdseye pattern is achieved on the underside. The blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious heavyweight feel. The cashmere blanket is gift-wrapped and presented in a bespoke, embossed House of Voltaire gift box. Sales from this special edition raise funds for The Studio Voltaire Capital Project, a transformative £2.8 million project, creating 42% more artists' studios, renovated exhibition space and 233% new public spaces including a dedicated learning space, public garden, cafe and the first-ever permanent House of Voltaire.
