Made in collaboration with artist, Björn Atldax, Indigofera’s Mixtec Mosaic skull is believed to represent Tezcatlipoca, one of the four most powerful creator-deities of the Aztec pantheon. Adversary to Quetzalcoatl, Tezcatlipoca is often depicted in the possession of obsidian mirrors, here woven around his head. The name comes from the Nahuatl word “tezapoctli” meaning “smoking mirror”.
This is one of ten blankets that make up Indigofera’s 10 Skull Project - the result of a longstanding collaboration with visual artist, Björn Atldax. Each blanket is individually numbered and labelled with a commemorative 10 Skull Project' patch and includes a cotton twill postman bag for easy carrying.
All of Indigofera’s blankets are crafted in central Norway by a family-owned factory using premium, 100% wool. The factory has been weaving quality wool products for 80 years. They have a hand in every element of the making process, from the spinning and dyeing of the yarn to the weaving of the blankets themselves. Even the wool comes from sheep native to the area. Indigofera’s blankets are built to be lived and travelled in – take them on your wildest adventures or keep them for those quiet nights on the couch. The choice is yours.
