If the name Susan Kare sounds familiar that’s because she’s the designer behind such old school classics as the original typefaces and iconography for Windows Solitaire and much of the original Apple design language. The Cairo Typeface she designed in the 80s for the first Apple Macintosh takes its name from Ancient Egypt and, despite being described as as a dingbats typeface, is also one of the first examples of what we now call emoji. She teamed up with Areaware again–they made the Solitaire Playing Cards–to convert Cairo into a line of bold, comfortable and unique cotton throw blankets. The 50″ x 70″ blanket is made of 100% organic cotton and was designed by Kare to be woven on the Jacquard Loom, one of the earliest examples of computer-controlled machine. It comes in black/white, gray/yellow, green/pink reversible color combinations, so there’s an option to match any decor.
