Product Description

Designed in collaboration with renowned Maine artist Eric Hopkins, the Swans Island & Eric Hopkins Limited Edition Throw is a work of art unto itself. This limited edition handwoven throw was inspired by an original painting by Eric Hopkins entitled “Land, Water, and Sky Bands.” The original watercolor was executed with the both the limitations and advantages of a hand loom in mind. The strong bands created by the three receding islands and a color palette that best matched the rich hand-dyed colors of Swans Island’s yarns led to this one-of-a-kind woven throw.

The Swans Island & Eric Hopkins Limited Edition Throw throw incorporates seventeen different colors and three different types of our own hand-dyed yarns. Throws are handwoven in our Maine studio and each throw takes the Swans Island team over nine hours to complete. You can read more about this unique collaboration in our Journal post.

Eric’s original “Land, Water, and Sky Bands” watercolor painting will be on display at the Portland Art Gallery throughout summer 2024 and is available for purchase there. These Limited Edition Throws are available in limited quantities for a limited time only, so please don’t delay in placing your order.

*Limited quantities available. Throws are woven to order and will begin shipping August 16.
