Founded by Australian designer Marc Hendrick in east LA 2015, Slowdown Studio is a modern lifestyle brand who collaborates with emerging and established artists from around the world to design blankets, towels, and home goods. They celebrate 'individuality and artistry, and the result is a collection of living, breathing works of art that are both functional and beautiful'.
Slowdown Studio woven blankets are made in the USA from 100% cotton, grown, spun and woven in North Carolina.
Koskela recently collaborated with Slowdown studio and Tangentyere Art Centre. The works of three very special senior Warlpiri, Pintupi and Luritja artists, Emma Daniels, Linda Syddick and Wentja Morgan were chosen to create three limited-edition blankets. These three blanket designs represent the culture and country of the artists and their community and feature elements of Papunya and Karrinyarra country.
