Magic Carpet Blanket or Throw/Beach Towel
You might recognize this painting… It’s been hanging on the walls at Manifacto for a few years. It was created by Shaun Herron and Izhar Rott many years ago!
Years ago, Izhar Rott and Shaun Herron shared a creative studio here in Amsterdam noord where they made their own art but also worked on several projects collaboratively. This painting was the first painting they made together around 1997. Have a look at this page to see more of the Herron & Bizhar collaborations.

Teddy Fleece is fleece fabric that is great for the colder times of the year. Made from 100% polyester, teddy fleece is a fluffy, soft, and comfortable fabric with a slight pile. Lightweight, highly breathable, and perfect for winters and other outdoor pursuits. Fleece fabric feels nice and gentle to the skin. Fleece is an ideal option for hypoallergenic people. It will add a warm feel to your bed without irritating the skin.
All about the printed side:
Printed on loopback Jersey 330 g/m2. Made of 90% cotton & 10% polyester.
Thick, soft, non-brushed soft knit fabric. Looped from the bottom – warms up on cool days. Polyester thread goes inside the cotton knit fabric and doesn’t touch skin.
Polyester yarn is placed inside the material, so it does not come into contact with your skin – as a result, it provides you with all the advantages of cotton knitted fabrics. These fibers have numerous benefits – it provides fabric stability and resistance to distortion. The garments keep the original shape for a longer time, they don’t get stretched out, the fabric is stronger and it will last longer. The right side of loopback jersey is smooth while the back is covered with characteristic loops. Digital prints on loopback jersey does not peel – garments made from loopback jersey fabric can be machine-washed.
