Swedish fashion brand Indigofera just released two special edition blankets they made with artist Richard Colman. We spoke with Richard about one of them.
Does it feel weird to write your name on a coffin?
Not really, I’ve been doing it for years. It’s an inevitable outcome.
What kind of person do you think will wrap themselves up in this blanket?
Probably no one. I threw that design in as a joke but they [Indegofera] liked it so they made it. I think it’s more ridiculous to have my name on a product someone is expected to pay money for than on a coffin. I don’t know, it’s pretty funny I guess.
On a dark note, will you be saving one to wrap yourself up in on that final day?
I don’t think so. I don’t think I want to be buried.
Burn baby burn. I’m going to have a tree planted over me. How about coffin painting? Are you open to commissions?
I don’t know. Maybe if it were the straight up pine box kind I would, but I doubt any weirdo that would want their coffin painted would opt for one as basic as that.
Glad to know it’s a possibility.
