Nothing comforts like cash. In the spirit of that sentiment, Hiller Dry Goods has designed a unique new collection of cotton blankets inspired by the money of nine different countries.
Hiller found inspiration from a variety of banknotes in developing the designs for the 52in x 70in, 100% cotton blankets. Each piece is woven on a jacquard tapestry loom in North Carolina, and the level of craftsmanship is clearly manifested in each design.
The Austin-based company zoomed in on specific patterns and shapes found on the various bills’ faces to create the unique designs. It’s easy to imagine any one of these pieces in a minimalist home, serving as a simple and stylish statement piece.
Owner Nick Hiller developed the collection to pay homage to the ancient business of utilizing textiles as currency, and each blanket offers a thoughtful reference to the antiquated tradition.
