Yield is a San Francisco based design studio who make very simple, attractive goods for the modern person. While their work is typically Northern California local, they do have one item that relates to us down South, which feels a bit ironic—but we’ll take it: they’ve made a flannel throw that is produced locally, in Los Angeles. We have no idea why or where they make it but we do know it’s great.
The flannel throw is intended to be a giant scarf or intimate blanket. Yield is known for making works preoccupied with outdoor fare, specifically things like picnicking, and this addition to their line is something to set your outdoor dining or keep you cool or warm whilst outdoors. These flannel mini-blankets come in very discrete designs that rely on concentrated basic shapes joined together to make a pattern that no one would ever complain about: they have a new classic feel to them.
The creations are fairly affordable at around seventy dollars and, despite their “upstate” design, they demand you to take them with you to Echo Park Lake or the field near Silver Lake. Or wherever! This casual throw will easily have your friends asking where you got it and you can happily respond that it is a very Californian, locally produced something.
