Tell us about yourself and your team!
We are a small team of 7 - most of our team is made up of women of color, and 2 teammates identify as queer.
Where are your products designed?
The woven blanket, mini blanket, knit blanket, puzzle and art print artworks are all designed by American and international artists.
What materials do you use? Where are your raw materials made?
Our woven blankets are proudly made from 100% cotton grown, spun and woven in the USA. All blankets are manufactured with yarn that is made from 25% recycled cotton. Our knit and mini blankets are also made in the USA using a high quality and environmentally friendly recycled cotton blend. The blend consists of an 80% cotton and 20% poly blend, which makes our blankets really soft and avoids pilling or bleeding. Our art prints are locally printed in Los Angeles using environmentally friendly and sustainable American made FSC Certified paper stock.
Where are your final products made?
Our woven blankets, knit blankets, mini blankets, and art prints are made in the USA. Our puzzles are made in China.
What certifications do you have, if any?
What are you most proud of as a brand?
Collaboration is at the heart of Slowdown Studio. We partner with established and emerging artists globally to create unique, limited edition designs for our woven, knit, and mini blankets. The main way in which we do this is through our annual Slowdown Art Comp.
