PRODUCT: Artifact Throw
MADE: USA
SIZE: 70" high x 54" wide
MATERIALS: 100% cotton, jacquard-woven double cloth
DESIGNER: Dee Clements and Jenny McGee Dougherty
The aptly named Artifact is the design collaboration between Chicago designer Dee Clements Jenny McGee Dougherty, a painter, textile designer and arts organizer based in Portland, Maine. Over the course of many months, Dee and Jenny worked together on hand drawings and ideas to bring together their styles for new art throws. Artifact is the result.

The soft, 100% cotton, American-made throw is equally at home on the beach or your favorite sofa. It’s also reversible, providing a second color palette with the same intriguing design. Machine wash with cold water on the delicate cycle and tumble dry on low heat.

Dee Clements draws and paints her designs before they are produced on a small manufacturing scale in partnership with US-based weaving mills. Clements’ Studio Herron, which is located in Chicago, was born out of the vision to revive American textile manufacturing by marrying an artistic process with responsibility to the land and people. She says, "As both a weaving studio and textile brand, our process is analog, designing on paper in colored pencil and gouache, hand threading looms, tying each knot and stitching each hem. Preserving and maintaining a commitment to ethical and environmental sustainability, traditional craft methodologies, and artistic process is our focus."
