Calling all 80s graphic design fans! This reversible throw features characters from the Cairo typeface, which was designed by Susan Kare in 1984 for the first Macintosh operating system. Taking its name from the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt, each symbol was drawn by hand using the bitmap grid. A few notable symbols lived on into later operating systems including the cursor and watch.

Kare designed this woven blanket for the Jacquard loom, an early example of computer-controlled machinery, operated with punched cards and invented by Joseph Jacquard in 1801. 

This throw is 100% organic cotton. Do not bleach, machine wash gentle, cold, hang dry. By Susan Kare for Areaware.
