I was ecstatic when I was contacted by Mr Price Home to collaborate with them to create a winter blanket. The brief was pretty simple and gave me free reign to create any design I chose. I submitted about five designs and they selected their favourite. It’s been fun to work with such a big chain store and learn about their processes and see my design become a part of their product offering, especially as they are as proudly South African as I am.
I decided to go with a mandala design, as I’ve been fascinated with it since the first moment I saw one. It has had many purposes, and for each purpose it has its own form and meaning — for meditation, artistic expression, or connecting with the inner self. I thought that it would look amazing on a blanket and decided to go with monochrome colours of black and white so that the design would have a central focus.
What excited me most about this colab is that a contribution of the sales are going to MRP Foundation which means that I can also give back to the community. I also cannot wait to see the blanket for sale on the shelves in the Mr Price Home store, which is going to be a very proud, selfie worthy moment for me.
Receiving my own designer blankie from Mr Price was a bonus and I can vouch that it’s great quality and super warm. Get yourself to one of their key stores to have a look or purchase it online here.
