Monster Throw by Siri Carlén - Hem
Like the luxurious coat of a make-believe beast, the fluffy mohair of the Monster throws is extravagantly deep, fantastically soft, and boldly decorated. Artist and illustrator Siri Carlén’s Monster patterns are playful exaggerations of markings found in nature. Their transfer to textile throws is made all the more effective by the soft fuzz of mohair wool, which makes the throws; Ring, Spot, Stripe and Wiggle, wonderfully warm in winter and enjoyably light and cool in summer.

Siri Carlén

Born in 1986, Siri Carlén is an artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. Her work is best described as tactile, playful, dynamic, and colorful. Throughout her practice – which spans many disciplines including sculpture, painting, textile, and illustration – there are clear signs of human touch, materiality, and production. Since graduating from Konstfack (University of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm) in 2015, Carlén has worked as an artist and illustrator. Her work is seen in both commercial and artistic contexts, from prints for fashion and interiors to book illustrations, murals, and most recently, a permanent sculpture park in the southern part of Sweden's largest island, Gotland. Carlén is best known for her drawings in vibrant pastel crayons on black or colored paper, usually with motifs inspired by her everyday life, her family, nature, or classic still lives and patterns.
