Created by a small group of innovative artists, Saturday green is a collaborative collection of blankets that we think you will love as much as you love the weekends. The collection is bold and punchy, full of colors and modern patterns that you won’t find anywhere else (and we know we checked).
The collection came about when designer Kelly Harris Smith turned to In2Green to create ceiling patterns for the WantedDesign show in 2018. In2Green, a New York-based company, makes clothing and textiles from sustainable materials, including recycled cotton from refiberized T-shirt fabrics and recycled polyester from plastic bottles. After Smith’s blankets were picked up by Cooper Hewitt, she cemented an official licensing partnership with In2Green and brought in four talented artists – Elodie Blanchard, Jill Malek, Susy Pilgrim Waters and Viscaya Wagner – to work with her to create the contemporary collection. Every designer brings a fresh perspective and new inspiration.
Smith, co-founder of FilzFelt, which was acquired by Knoll, Inc. in 2011, designs textiles, interior design installations and furniture. As a trained architect at Northeastern University, she is inspired by geometric, urban patterns and textures and translates them into the collection.
Elodie Blanchard is a France-born Brooklyn artist who works at the intersection of fiber art and design. Similar to In2Green, she transforms the discarded into something new and exciting, be it an object, a sculpture or an environment. She is inspired by embroidery designs, collages and geometry.
Jill Malek, who produces wall coverings, carpets and textiles for her design studio, is inspired by variations and patterns from natural and urban landscapes. These design elements shape her creativity and she tries to create a calming effect on interiors.
Susy Pilgrim Waters founded PilgrimWaters with her husband Keith to design their line of clothing, furniture and textiles. Waters is an award-winning illustrator who takes inspiration from collaged mixed media and plays with scaling.
Viscaya Wagner, a multidisciplinary artist, designer, and curator from Brooklyn, New York, is interested in the simplicity of form and shape as well as exploring human relationships. When designing her furniture, objects, works of art and rooms, she tries to give warmth and tactility.
