The Colour Block Blankets by Dutch designer Hella Jongerius are a perfect illustration of how the variation of hues used for warp and weft threads affects the colour scheme of a woven textile. Four contrasting colour blocks of greater or lesser intensity attractively interact to form a decorative overall pattern. The different two-tone combinations of coloured thread are visible on the edges of the blanket: in the hues of the fringe at both ends and in the thin stripes of colour woven in the visible selvedge along the sides.
