Throwflakes are throwing-star inspired holiday ornaments. They are equally at home and beautiful accompanying your holiday season hanging from a Festivus pole, wreath, tree (be it Menorah, Christmas, solstice or other), or mantlepiece. Our customers have also been known to hang them on their walls, mirrors, candle sticks, wall sconces and chandeliers.
How you display Throwflakes is limited only by your imagination! Some of our customers report that they decorate by sticking them point-first into things like drywall or cardboard boxes or corkboard.
Throwflakes come in sets of four, in your choice of polished brass or stainless steel.
Note that Throwflakes are not sharpened and every point is cut on a softening radius so they are safe to be within reach of (most) pets. However, Throwflakes are still pokey and are NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.
Each Throwflake has its own design language:
The Lepidoptera was inspired by the cell pattern found in butterfly wings.
The Chippendale is based on the design elements see in brasses found on Georgian furniture, made famous by designer Thomas Chippendale.
The Wankel/Celtic Knot hews to the intertwining and recursive patterns found in Celtic Knotwork, but it also features the distinctive epitrochoid triangle that forms the basis for the famous Wankel engine.
The Ziggy is an homage to the seminal album by one of our most favorite artists.
We also offer the limited version Throwflake AR, which is made out of 3/16s inch AR400 steel. The Throwflake AR has been tested and found to be resistant to bullets to an equivalent of NIJ level IIA protection.
While the Throwflake AR is NOT certified to any level of bullet protection and should (hopefully obviously) NOT be used as actual armor, Throwflake AR is the world’s ONLY bulletproof holiday ornament suitable for hanging on a tree.
Throwflakes are 100% manufactured by Tradlabs in Seattle WA.
