The Big Bold Colour Theory – Artist John Booth's Second Collaboration - Limited Edition Collection of blankets
In recent years, the colour grey has become a widely recognised symbol of contemporary ‘good taste’. It’s a phenomenon that baffles Scottish-born artist John Booth, whose fearless use of vibrant, bold shades is central to his working practice and stems in part, from a childhood obsession with felt-tip pens and colouring-in books. We have again collaborated with John on a series of blankets for our Interiors collection for 2019. By visiting the mill in Scotland and working closely with the design team, John was able to experiment with Begg & Co’s textiles and expand on their rich offering by using two different themes for the collaboration; abstract decorative print and oral observation.
