Mr Price Home Winter Blanket Colab

Mr Price Home Winter Blanket Colab

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.

Colab is one of MrpHome's initiatives to showcase SA's trending talent and champion local design. MrpHome worked with four South African designers, Natalie Vice, Rudi de Wet, Zizipho Poswa and David Bellamy who each designed a Winter blanket to form part of our Colab range. This video shows some insight into the design of each blanket:

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.
