Faye Toogood designs a collection of three blankets handwoven by Barcelona-based textile brand, Teixidors

In 2019 Faye Toogood’s blanket collection for Teixidors was completed with three blanket designs which offer a new interplay of tones and textures, one of which incorporates ecological yak wool. Each blanket from the CRISS-CROSS 3, 2, 1 collection combines three distinct yet conjoined weaves in a variety of structures, details and proportions. Each part has been hand-woven in the Teixidors workshop, using natural ecological merino wool, carefully washed to achieve a lightly felted and soft finish, and baby yak wool from a cooperative in Mongolia. The resulting triptych consists of three woven quadrilaterals of subtly different tones, sewn together into a long patchwork with fringed edging. The colourways are contrasting and complementary. With the CRISS-CROSS 3,2,1 collection, Teixidors demonstrates its expertise in traditional hand weaving and felting. In this new collection by British designer Faye Toogood, Teixidors proposes joining different and independent pieces in length, a strategy that harnesses the opportunity to mix different colours and textures in Teixidors’ own exclusive yarns. Criss-Cross 3,2,1 also reinforces a decorative and characteristic element in other Teixidors' collections: the border, or “appliquéd cord”, that is added in different locations, rhythms, thicknesses and colours. And most importantly, Teixidors is able to explore new fields in the composition of pieces and uses of their wooden looms. In this case, taking advantage of the smaller looms in the workshop that require a shorter learning period, resulting in more work opportunities for the weavers, which supports the main goal of Teixidors: achieving social inclusion of persons with intellectual disabilities through textile handicraft. As Nuria Bitria, Teixidors creative director, says: “in Criss-Cross 3,2,1 we want to express our capacity for design and production, and to highlight every step, peculiarity and perfect imperfection of every handmade process. In this new design we show our complete authenticity.”
