Designed by Marianne Abelsson
The Pleece throw is available in two sizes: 140 × 170 cm (55"× 67") and 140 × 220 cm (55"× 87").
Created in 1997 by Marianne Abelsson, the Pleece collection has changed very little over the years. Some models have been added. The colours change slightly as the seasons come and go. But it’s still based on the same timeless simplicity and quality that never goes out of style. The fabric is still pleated in Borås, Sweden. And it is still one of Design House Stockholm’s best selling products, sold in MoMA Store, New York, for 15 years.
The Pleece throw is made by a unique blend of 75% polyester and 25% viscose, that sets it apart from other fleece fabrics. Also, the pleating process gives the fleece extra volume and softness. The fabric retains its pleating after washing.
Pleated fleece: 75% polyester, 25% viscose. Wash cold (40°C) with similar colours, dry flat. The textile retains its pleating after washing. When worn and washed, pilling may occur.
