My Sun IIBlanket
Concept
My Sun II,alludes to the idea that we are all people living under one sun. The concept behind this blanket is a representation of my own cultural heritage with incorporated Greek, Islamic and French elements; it also is directly related to the concept of heat, as we created a small blanket or a throw. The design itself is linked to the masculine and feminine qualities of each person or two people united, either through love and/or mixing of cultures.
The fabric dimensions are: 160 cm x 130 cm
Fabric: wool and silk 
Colors: warm and cool such as light blue silk and natural dyed wool backing; ranges from light to dark shades, or inverted 

10% of proceeds go to refugee relief through the Greek Orthodox Church.
