Mary Kasper Blankets

"Soft goods" will add a touch of humanity to any interior. There's nothing more warm and tactile than a beautiful blanket on the foot of a bed or a throw draped over the back of a chair or sofa. We recently spotted the weavings of Massachusetts artisan Mary Kasper at the Westchester Craft Show. There's a strong South African connection with her work.

Kasper is a fiberartist  who specializes in handwoven, hand-dyed blankets that she beads and decorates with vintage mother of pearl buttons. "My inspiration comes from Xhosa beadwork, specifically from their beaded blankets, which I discovered while visiting South Africa."
