Silk Velvet Fringe Throw We're firm believers in layering your bedding as a more flexible design approach that allows you to change throws and shams with the season. One of the most talented textile designers we've come across, Kevin O'Brien translates traditional artisan skills into contemporary interchangeable pieces. The silk velvet fern designs are hand dyed and cut. Silk-screened chocolate and copper tones dance across the velvet fringe throw's deeply sensuous surface. Alternatively, a couple of us couldn't help ourselves and swept this extraordinarily luxurious piece around our shoulders as a dazzling shawl.
