About the design
Initially created by Ray Eames as an entry to a printed textile competition held by the MOMA in 1947, this precious dot pattern is a remarkable illustration of the modern design rising at the time. In fact, the pattern is a set of dots and crosses that refers to Charles Eames abstract paintings from the 1930s. Since then, the Eames Dot Pattern has been made into upholstery, tablecloths, curtains, pillows, purses, business card cases and more. Of course, our Dot design card case has black enamel on the lid and comes with a delicate black sleeve.
